• Short Summary

    Footage of blindfolded boxing in Australia.

  • Description

    Australia.

    Titles read: "BLINDFOLD BOXING - An Australian sidelight."

    "Whenever that local boxing tournament looks like falling as flat as some of today's heavyweights - just put a few blindfold boxers in the ring... and have a good laugh."

    L/S of two sea cadets being blindfolded in the ring. Judges spin the pair round. M/Ss of four cadets in the ring swinging wildly with one another. Several times they end falling over and a mass brawl begins. One of the boxers has a very crafty idea he is seen walking in crouching position, as soon as he feels the feet of opponent he stand and lands uppercut on opponents chin.
