1933-06-12 Jackie Brown w pts 15 Valentin Angelmann, Olympia, Kensington, London, England - NBA/IBU/GB. Referee: Antonio Villa. Boxing brilliantly, especially with the left, Brown (111) got away to a flyer and although the challenger was a tough nut to deal with the speed of the Manchester man’s punches was often bewildering, if not hurtful. In the final third of the contest, Brown tired and slowed as would be expected and Angelmann (111¾) got back into the fight, but could never impose himself on the champion and went down on points according to the referee. Meeting again a few months later and despite being recorded in The Ring Record Book as a world title bout, Brown’s 15-round points victory over Angelmann at Belle Vue, Manchester on 11 September was made at 114lbs and did not involve the championship. Still recognised as the champion by the NYSAC despite not competing at 112lbs, Midget Wolgast continued to be rated as the leading man at the weight by The Ring magazine after beating Brown (w pts 12 at the Royal Albert Hall, Kensington, London) on 30 October. Wolgast had gone to England with a view to securing a championship match with Brown, but ultimately had to settle for an overweight contest.
