1931-10-03 [[Frankie Genaro]] w pts 15 [[Valentin Angelmann]], Sports Palace, Paris, France - NBA/IBU. Referee: Curt Guttmann. Originally, Genaro had been matched to make a defence against [[Young Perez]], but the latter was taken ill a week before the fight was due to take place and Angelmann, a stocky, tough and determined box-fighter, was substituted, giving neither man much time to prepare. Grateful for the opportunity and performing with much credit, the young Frenchman gave Genaro all the trouble he could handle in a hard-fought battle, which was reflected by the majority decision that allowed the latter to hold on to his title.
