  • Description

    Full title reads: "Paris. The Singing-Dancing-Conductor-Boxer. Versatile Al Brown combines business with pleasure in training for fight with Eugene Huat for World's Bantam weight championship."

    Paris, France.

    Boxing champion Alfonso Teofilo Brown - better known as Panama Al Brown - stands in front of a small Jazz orchestra conducting the music. He then turns around to start singing (sadly this is mute). He then starts a very groovy dance routine before returning to the song.

    The band continue and Brown comes back onto the floor in training kit and with a skipping rope. He skips in time to the music. He then begins to dance and shadow box.

    N.B. Brown - with his long reach - held onto the World Bantam for years.
