1934-10-15 Marcel Thil drew 15 Carmelo Candel, Sports Palace, Paris, France - IBU. Referee: M. Chavannas. Defending against his stablemate, Thil (157) had a tough time of it against an opponent who knew his every move and for round after round the pair were locked together, with the champion trying to find a way through. However, in the 13th Thil finally got on top of Candel (158), as his strength prevailed, and he just about deserved a share of the spoils accorded him by the judges, but it had been close.
