Did you know that before the second world war  the HMS Ganges boxing championships, whether inter-Divisional or inter-Command, carried some pretty peculiar titles, which related to height and weight ?
You will recall from your days at Ganges that some boy's were very tiny in height and carried very frail frames. No boy was ever in the heavyweight bracket.
Today, amateur boxing has eleven weight levels, but back in 1938, Ganges, adhering to the pre-war Amateur Boxing Association Rules but not to weight divisions, had just seven levels.
Here, for interest only, is a little table.
|WEIGHT DIVISIONS [GANGES] BOYS||kG||lbs||STONES||WEIGHT DIVISIONS [ABA] MEN||kG||lbs||STONES|
|Midge Weight||44.5||98||7.00||Light Flyweight||48.0||106||7.50|
