    Titles read: "BABY BOXERS" (Dublin issue).

    Annapolis, United States of America.

    M/S of several small boys in training for a boxing match - they are all punching punch balls. Beside a ring we see a little girl kiss a boy boxer before his match. Various shots of two little boys fighting in a boxing ring. There is an adult referee and a crowd of other boy boxers and adults watch the fight.

    One of the boys gets a couple of socks in the face; he sits down and starts to cry - poor thing! He is counted out by the ref. Two other boys fight. A tiny boy is knocked over twice and walks off in a sulk, to bury his head in his corner of the ring.

    Cataloguer's note: this is awful! Those poor children!
