  • Description

    Full title reads: "Budding World Champions. Hurricane bouts as Albert Hall".

    Albert Hall, London.

    Finals of Annual Boxing Championships run by London Federation of Boys' Clubs. Various shots of boys boxing (some teenagers, others children). The boxers are watched by a large crowd - looks like any professional boxing match.

    According to paperwork for 35/19 there are 3 classes of boxers, 10 stone 7 lbs., 5 stone 7 lbs and 9 stone 7 lbs. Lord Desborough presented cups and medals, although he is not seen in this story.

    Note: item transferred from combined neg. - natural sound only, no commentary. It looks as if commentary is on separate track reel that is missing or misplaced.
