"Brown was down at least ten times during the bout, and when the final gong sounded he was in that familiar position. That he escaped being knocked out cleanly was due to his superb condition, great recuperative power and bulldog courage." - Globe & Mail. "Tremaine gave a most convincing demonstration of why the champion and the contenders in his class consistently sidestep him." - Toronto Star. Brown, of the U.K., was reported to be the European Champion at this time.
