  • Description

    United States of America.

    Boxing match between two chimpanzees. Amusing or cruel, depending on your perspective. They fight in a miniature boxing ring and wear gloves and romper suits. A trainer calls out their names, difficult to hear but one is from New York, the other from St Louis.

    They throw punches as the trainers do all the usual boxing stuff - pep talking, fanning the chimps with towels etc. The chimps start off play fighting but then get into it. One rolls over and plays dead. One jumps out of the ring at one point. Billy Bush is announced to be the new champion and he holds his arm up like a champ.
