1933-12-11 Jackie Brown w pts 15 Ginger Foran, Belle Vue, Manchester, England - NBA/IBU/GB. Referee: P. J. Moss. A good winner on points, the champion’s left hand and remarkable speed were too much for Foran (109¼), who despite being cut over the right eye in the 11th and out of his depth at times never gave up. Always looking to mix it with Brown (112), Foran had some successes, mainly in the latter stages, but was never able to sustain an attack and the referee had no hesitation in holding up Brown’s arm at the finish.
