ELECTRIC FAN HELPS BOXERS GET BREATH BETWEEN THE ROUNDS
An electric fan was used to refresh boxers between rounds at a recent military boxing tournament in England, as shown below. The fan, its blades guarded by wire mesh, is hinged to the end of an extension arm attached to a corner post of the boxing ring. When the boxer resumes fighting, the fan is swung back outside of the ropes.
