Boxing Kangaroos vs Man. Now considered a cruel and distasteful sport, boxing matches between man and kangaroo actually started in the 1800s as part of travelling shows.

These Pathe News clips were filmed in the 1930s in both Australia and America where men and even women took on the challenge of this great marsupial. As the clips show, kangaroos are the boxing champs of the animal kingdom with not so much as a punch but an incredibly powerful kick and they proved their superiority over many a man.
