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 and was outboxing the champion round after round until dumped again in the ninth for the count of ‘nine’. From then on, Jaks (158½) took a murderous beating to the body and was put down again in the 13th before coming out for the penultimate session, only to be floored three more times after being nailed by a big overarm right. Finally, his corner had seen enough and tossed in the towel to save their man from taking a further beating.
