1934-02-26 Marcel Thil w pts 15 Ignacio Ara, Sports Palace, Paris, France - IBU. Referee: Maurice Nicod. Although Ara (156¾), a heavy hitter, gave the champion a good fight and tried endlessly to find a way through his rival’s guard he was undone by sound bodywork, ultimately going down on all three judges’ scorecards. Thil (159), a veteran of 15 years in the ring, showed no signs that he was about to lose his title when handing out a boxing lesson in all the rudiments of the game to the tough Spaniard.
