    "Why not try new departures in Boxing to liven things up a bit? This way for instance"

    Two men stand on top of large balls in an open air swimming pool or lake. They balance on the balls and as they run on top of them they have a boxing match. Inevitably they fall in a lot! One man wears a swimsuit, the other trousers and a shirt. They both wear boxing gloves.

    "No knockouts here - all knockins!" More footage of the fun and games. They have a bit of a scrap standing on the bottom of the pool after one fall. Camera tilts down to reveal that they are in a kind of raised swimming pool at what looks like some kind of showground. Looks like America.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 607.

    Note: this can was previously known as EP253B.
