1935-05-04 Marcel Thil w rtd 14 (15) Vilda Jaks, Sports Palace, Paris, France - IBU. Referee: Jean Chavanne. Dropped in the second, the challenger got on his bike to put as much distance between himself and Thil (159) as he could. He was actually outboxing the champion round after round until dumped again in the ninth for a count of ‘nine’. From then on, Jaks (158½) took a murderous beating to the body. Put down again in the 13th, Jaks was floored three more times in the penultimate session after being nailed by big overarm rights. Finally, his corner had seen enough, tossing in the towel to save their man from taking a further beating.
