As a return fight there was tremendous anticipation in this one, due to the first meeting ending in a non-title disqualification win for the Spaniard some 12 weeks earlier. Unfortunately for the fans, this time round Miller (122) left nothing to chance and following a terrific left uppercut Girones (125) was counted out at 2.17 of the first round.

1935-02-17 Freddie Miller w co 1 (15) Jose Girones, The Bullring, Barcelona, Spain - NBA/IBU. Referee: Juan Casanovas. As a return fight there was tremendous anticipation in this one, due to the first meeting ending in a non-title disqualification win for the Spaniard some 12 weeks earlier. Unfortunately for the fans this time round Miller (122) left nothing to chance, and following a terrific left uppercut Girones (125) was counted out at 2.17 of the first round.

At this moment in time Girones was not even the European champion, having been deposed for not defending the title since November 1933. That honour would soon be in the hands of France’s Maurice Holtzer, who outpointed Vittorio Tamagnini over 15 rounds at the Sports Palace, Paris, France on 26 March. Not only did Holtzer become the European champion, but he was also given the number-one rating by The Ring magazine, a position he held until January 1936. Despite being continually ignored when it came to to world title fights, along with a number of European champions, the IBU would eventually recognise him as a world champion.
