    British Army Boxing Tournament at Shoreham.

  • Description

    Our Fighting Boys - enjoy their boxing tournament in Shoreham, West Sussex.

    British Army boxing tournament. Pan across huge crowd of soldiers in steep seating; the ring; where a boxer is seated in the corner while a manager fans him with a towel; other boxer sits in other corner; and continue panning across more of the spectators. The seating is on all 4 sides of the ring.

    Fade in to boxing match in progress; the boxers dance around; each landing some punches. Closer view of same - punching and ducking; etc. Great shot of trainers trying to revive tired boxer during a time-out; 2 guys are fanning towels energetically while a 3rd rubs his legs; across ring in background; 2 more towels are waving; so that it almost looks like reflection. CU man in civilian suit sits with soldiers; watching intently.
