• Short Summary

    Boxing matches where Lydon loses to Shucco and Robinson retires with injured shoulder.

  • Description

    Dublin, Eire (Southern Ireland, Republic of Ireland).

    At Tolka Park we see various shots of a boxing match between Dom Lydon of Mayo and Tony Shucco of America. Commentator tells us Shucco wins.

    We then see Chris Cole of Mullingar fighting Alf Robinson from Nottingham. After several bouts of tough punching Robinson retires with an injured shoulder - presumably this means Cole wins?

    (Apologies for lack of knowledge of boxing rules!)
