This chapter discusses Terayama Shūji’s screenplay, Jūkyūsai no burūsu that reveals the tension that occurs when boxers brawl to knockout one another while authorities intervene to protect the fighters. Terayama’s narrative resonates the Third World independence movements, civil rights, and the rallying of students. He positions boxing in a cluster of formations including stuttering, graffiti, jazz, and gambling that parallels the mixture of real and imagined events within everyday experience.
