    Titles read: "CHICAGO - GOLDEN GLOVES A KNOCK OUT!".

    Chicago, Illinois, United States of America.

    In the Intercity Golden Gloves championship we see various shots of lightweights Vincent Shomo (dark trunks) fighting Freddie (Freddy?) Davis.

    The two men are attended after round one, then go back to the fight. More shots of the boxing, intercut with shots of the audience watching and shouting encouragement. Eventually, Shomo punches Davis with a left hook and Davis falls down. Shomo is the winner but we dwell on shot of poor Davis, lying on the floor and looking dazed.
