1933-03-18 [[Panama Al Brown]] w pts 12 [[Domenico Bernasconi]], Sports Palace, Milan, Italy - WORLD. Referee: Jack Hart. Although Brown (117½) was awarded seven rounds to Bernasconi’s three on the judges’ scorecards, with two even, it was not as straightforward as it appeared. In the fourth round, the champion was actually sent to his corner by the referee, who had apparently disqualified him. With the ring announcer not really understanding what had transpired, the secretary of the Italian Boxing Federation jumped into the ring and persuaded Hart to give Brown another chance as the Italians felt that winning the title by disqualification was not what they wanted. After discussions with the judges the fight got underway and following the unanimous decision there were no protests forthcoming from Bernasconi (117½).
