  • Description

    Title reads: "Woodcock - Mauriello. The Gloves are off".

    New York, United States of America (USA).

    M/S of Tami Mauriello, heavyweight boxer, doing shadow boxing in front of a mirror. We then see Tami hitting a punch bag, skipping and sparring in gym.

    M/S of British boxer, Bruce Woodcock, jogging at Bear Mountain training camp. M/S of Bruce sparring with Afro-American boxer Henry Jones. We then see Bruce hitting a punch bag. C/U of Bruce. He speaks to camera in broad Yorkshire accent: he says he is enjoying his training and hopes he'll get a shot at a world title.

    Various shots of Tami sitting in the ring having a "Limey's crumpets and tea party" as a comedy publicity stunt. He and his companion are dressed in top hats and tails. They drink from tea cups with their little fingers sticking out, mocking English tradition! Very funny.
