• Short Summary

    Wrestler Anders Larson fights boxer Roy Marteny in the studio.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Can a wrestler beat a boxer? Always a debatable point - a couple of minutes by Anders Larson, famous Swedish Olympic Wrestler, with Roy Marteny - will show the wily ways of both in such a "friendly" contest!"

    Probably filmed in Pathe Studio, London.

    Various shots show Anders Larson and Roy Marteny having a fight in the studio. They both wear just shorts and boots; one of them wears boxing gloves - presumably this is Marteny. The fight is a mixture of wrestling and boxing and seems to end in a draw!
