2 Claims.

This invention relates to games, and contemplates more specifically a miniature boxing arena in which a pair of figures simulating boxers are manually manipulated asif in pugilistic combat.

, A principalobject of the game of my invention is. to provide a miniature boxing ring in which a, pair of figures resembling boxers are slidably supported, in combination with means operable manually from beneath the fioor of the ring to move the figures in a manner simulating fistic combat.

Another object is to provide an arena having a slotted-floor through which. a pair of rods extend having their upper ends secured to movable statues and their lower ends each provided with a handle whereby the rods may be moved laterally through the slot and partially rotated to cause similar movement of the figures.

Another object is to provide figures simulating boxers of which the legs and lower trunk are mounted rigidly to supporting plates, the upper trunk of each figure being rotatable so as to swing the integrally formed arms of the figure therewith, and a detachable head mounted on a flexible member removably carried by the upper trunk to retain the head in proper position on the trunk.

Other objects and salient features of my invention such as economy of construction, and ease and simplicity of operation, will be apparent to those of skill in this art from an examination of the following description read in the light of the accompanying drawings, in which:

Fig. 1 is a side elevation of the apparatus of my invention;

Fig. 2 is a plan View of the boxing ring or arena;

Fig. 3 is a sectional view partially broken away, illustrating the means for maintaining the various parts of the body of a boxing figure in operable relationship and for controlling the same;

Fig. 4 is a sectional view similar to Fig. 3 with the head of the figure removed;

Fig. 5 is a perspective view partially broken away of the lower portion of the arena, depicting the sliding support for each figure on the fioor of the ring.

Referring to the drawings in detail, the n merals of which indicate similar parts throughout the several views, 6 designates a rectangular subfloor of a miniature boxing ring. Walls 1, extending upwardly from and secured to three sides of the subfioor, provide a support for an 9 between the subfioor and upper floor. A plurality of triangular braces HI reinforce the right.

fioor, a vertical ring post ll is'provided. Each post comprises arod' mounted in the subfloor and extending through the upper floor. A plurality of cords l2- are arranged and held taut at different levels above the floor to encircle a rectangular area of the ring by means of guys 13 attached to the ring posts I It.

The floor 8 is. formed with a slot M in its middle extendingthe length of the area encircled by the cords l2. Theslot l4: terminatesin circular openings l5 of a greater diameter than the width of the slot, which correspond to the respective corners for the fighters in the ring. A pair of statues or figures l6 resembling boxers, having integral arms l 1 extended to simulate an assumed fighting pose, are carried respectively by separate plates l8 slidably supported on the floor 8. The feet I 9 of each statue are firmly attached by any suitable means to the respective plates. The trunk 20 of each statue is formed of two sections to permit the upper trunk 2| of the body and arms I! to rotate on the lower trunk 22 and legs 23 which are immovable with respect to the plate. The head 24 of each figure is detachable and is provided with a hole extending upwardly into the head from the base thereof. The hole is lined with a tubing 25. A hole is bored downwardly into the upper end trunk 3" portion as at 26 in coaxial alignment with the 40 head in position on the'trunk 20. Spring 21 may be secured in hole 26 by any suitable means, as

1 in the embodiment illustrated, or may be loosely set in the hole to permit easy replacement.

The upper trunk portion 2| of each figure is maintained onthe lower trunk 22 by a rod 28 which extends from below the floor 8 upwardly through a slot H in the iloor and rotatably through, respectively, plate l8 and a tube 29 lining an opening in the lower trunk, and into a hole bored in the upper trunk, in which latter hole the upper end of the rod is rigidly secured by any means well known in the art. The rod is preferably arranged parallel to the bore of the hole 26 in. which the spring 21 is carried upper floor 8 of the ring and form a subchamber 55 but is preferably ofiset rearwardly therefrom.

The lower end of each rod 28 within subchamber 9 is provided with a knurled handle 30 by which the rods may be manipulated in the manner about to be described.

The apparatus may be used in a contest of skill in the maneuvering of the figures, by two persons, each manipulating one of the rods 28 in an eiTort to knock oil the head of the figure operated by his contestant. To this end the knurled handles 30 of the respective rods are moved laterally through the slot toward each other by the contestants to bring the figures together from their respective "corners. Each rod may then be turned axially by its operator to cause the arms of the figure which the respective rods are adapted to swing, to strike the head of the other figure. Maneuvers of the character may be countered by the manipulation of the arms of said other figure by the other contestant, as will be obvious. The contest is won when the contestant succeeds in causing the arms of the figure manipulated by him to dislodge the head of the figure operated by his contestant.

It will be observed that the plates I8 tend to '9 prevent tilting of the figures, thus insuring movement of the figures in a manner more naturally simulating participants of an actual boxing contest.

While I have described but one embodiment of my invention, it will be understood that numerous changes in size, design, shape, number and proportions of the various parts may be made; that the figures may be of different shape with respect to one another so as to give one contestant an advantage in defending against the maneuvers of the other figure and to give the other contestant an advantage in attack; and further, that other slots in the floor 8 may be provided to enable greater range of movement of the figures during the contestall without departing from the spirit of my invention as defined by the appended claims.

What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. In a device of the character described, a pair of miniature statues of boxers, each comprising upper and lower trunk portions movable rotatably relative to one another, a fioor, means forming a subchamber below said floor, a pair of plates slidable on said floor, said statues being mounted on said respective plates, and means operable within said subchamber to cause lateral movement of the lower trunk portions of said statues toward each other and the upper trunk portions of said statues relative to each other and relative to the lower trunk portions.

2. In a device of the character described, a floor having a slot therein, means forming a subchamber below said floor, a pair of plates slidably mounted on said floor, a statue mounted on each plate, each statue comprising a lower trunk portion and an upper trunk portion movable rotatably on said lower trunk portion, and a detachable head, a pair of rods extending from below said floor in said subchamber through said slot and through holes in respective plates and lower trunk portions of said respective statues, the upper ends of said rods being rigidly secured to the upper trunk portions of said respective statues.
