In October , the paper was sold to a syndicate of London sportsmen, who installed Sydney Rushton, a long-time London fight reporter, as the new editor.
The layout changed, the page size was increased and Rushton proved less popular than Murray. The paper was again put up for sale and, while waiting for a buyer, the old features were reinstated and there was no official Editor. Another set of sportsmen bought the paper and Godfrey Williams was named editor. He attempted to run Boxing as a newspaper, cutting popular features and reducing news stories down to the shortest possible length.
The circulation quickly dropped to its lowest ever. Billy Masters, a city printer and huge boxing fan, saved the paper, appointing W. Millier as the new editor. He completely reinvigorated the magazine, helped in no small measure by its first colour cover. In , Millier departed and the owner replaced him with Sydney Ackland, who had previously worked as John Murray's assistant editor and had been taught by him. Murray made a popular comeback as editor but ill health forced him to step down in Gilbert Odd took over until the building housing the paper was destroyed by the enemy.
Odd was then called up for national service and both Masters and Murray served further terms. Northern sports writer Bert Callis was the new editor. Odd took over for a second term upon Callis' retirement. Odd implemented the tradition of reporting the results and fighters' weights for every single fight in the country. When Brodzky died, Boxing News was sold twice in quick succession, and Graham Houston became editor in , immediately broadening the range of coverage, especially in North America.
Houston left in to work on morning newspapers in Canada. Circulation increased exponentially during the Mullan years, which doubled as a time of great change in the boxing world. Most notable new developments were the proliferation of 'world' titles and the increase in the number of major British promoters.
Mullan was fiercely principled and tremendously well respected in the boxing fraternity. Boxing News was redesigned and switched to a full-colour format and become more extensive in content.
In March the paper went to A3 size before reverting to A4, and increasing in size to 48 pages from 24 in September The magazine remained the main trade paper in Britain. Abrams left BN — after 22 years — in December , just three months after the publication celebrated its centenary, and was succeeded as editor by Tris Dixon.
