Boxing kangaroo has a fight with a man, then with a woman.
Cape Town, South Africa. M/S of a kangaroo standing on its hind legs on a street corner surrounded by people. The kangaroo is wearing boxing gloves. A woman tickles him under the chin. The kangaroo rests his front feet on her shoulders.
A crowd stands around and watches the kangaroo fighting a man. The roo looks pretty violent and kicks the other man below the belt - it looks pretty painful. The man hits the kangaroo on the chin. "They call him "Chick" and he doesn't even mind sparring with a lady! (if invited)." A woman has a little spar with the kangaroo.
