1932-10-31 Jackie Brown w rtd 13 (15) Young Perez, Belle Vue, Manchester, England - NBA/IBU/GB. Referee: M. Falony. A pro from the age of 16, England’s Jackie Brown was booked as Perez’s first challenger having successfully defended his British and European titles against Jim Maharg (w disq 8 at Belle Vue, Manchester) on 19 September 1932. Brown had lost just ten times in 69 bouts. Prior to the 13th round there had been no knockdowns and fortunes for both men had fluctuated, it still being anybody’s fight. Into that session, however, Brown (111½) smashed home a right to the jaw followed by a left hook and another right, and Perez (110¾) was down. Getting up at ‘five’ the champion was being pounded incessantly against the ropes until his corner threw the towel in to rescue him from taking further unnecessary punishment. On the result, Brown was immediately challenged by fellow Englishman, Micky McGuire, who had knocked out Perez six weeks earlier at 114lbs, but McGuire’s challenges fell on deaf ears. Inactive for almost three months with an injury, Brown would eventually defend against the tough Frenchman, Valentin Angelmann.

1932-10-31 Jackie Brown w rtd 13 (15) Young Perez, Belle Vue, Manchester, England - NBA/IBU/GB. Referee: Marcel Falony. A pro from the age of 16, England’s Brown was booked as Perez’s first challenger having successfully defended his British and European titles against Jim Maharg (w disq 8 at Belle Vue, Manchester) on 19 September 1932. Brown had lost just ten times in 69 bouts.

Prior to the 13th round there had been no knockdowns and fortunes for both men had fluctuated, it still being anybody’s fight. Into that session, however, Brown (111½) smashed home a right to the jaw followed by a left hook and another right, and Perez (110¾) was down. Getting up at ‘five’ the champion was being pounded incessantly against the ropes until his corner threw the towel in to rescue him from taking further unnecessary punishment.

On the result, Brown was immediately challenged by fellow Englishman, Mickey McGuire, who had knocked out Perez six weeks earlier at 114lbs, but McGuire’s challenges fell on deaf ears. Inactive for almost three months with an injury, Brown would eventually defend against the tough Frenchman, Valentin Angelmann.
