Champion of the Boxers (1972, Taiwan)

The version of this Roc Tien basher I have runs 82:49 (Mandarin w/subs).

According to the HKFA there\'s a VHS that runs 89m. That same time is listed here on FLK.

Now even if my copy is a PAL conversion that would revert to 24fps with a time of 86:21. That\'s roughly 2.5 min shy.

The only (possible) cut I noticed was at 64:34 when there\'s a definite jump - it\'s when Shan Mao comes to fetch Yun Yen-Ju (the prostitute \'Fang Tzu\'). We cut from the duel between Roc Tien and Chen Hung-Lieh to Shan Mao entering the room - what\'s missing (if anything)?

Anyone have any info on this?
