Former lightweight boxer Billy Edwards, now a trainer and writer of the sport, takes on a challenger named Warwick in an exhibition match. The match is scheduled for five rounds of 20 seconds each. A large crowd has gathered behind the ring to watch the fight.Written by
Entertaining "boxing" film from Edison shows about twenty-seconds of a lightweight boxing match between Billy Edwards and an unknown opponent. Edison, who would film just about anything and sell it to the public, got into the habit of filming boxing matches (about 20-30 seconds of each round) and then showing them to the public. I do question whether this here was from a real fight or if perhaps it was just set-up because the two boxers are really going at it and with this pace they'd been out of energy by the end of the round. There's certainly nothing ground-breaking here from Edison but it's an interesting glimpse to a former popular boxer.
