Luchien is sitting on a stool in a boxing-ring, wearing boxing gloves. He is leaning back on ropes that surround the ring. He has a black eye. Gabin is his coach. He is perched on the ropes and encourages him to fight by miming punches. Gabin gestures for a break and brings Luchien some water. Gabin then hits a gong to signal another match. Luchien does not want to go again.
