1935-06-01 Marcel Thil w pts 15 Ignacio Ara, The Bullring, Madrid, Spain - IBU. Referee: Juan Casanovas. Defending the IBU version of the title for the seventh time, while giving Ara (159¼) another crack, Thil (158½), carrying a badly cut mouth, was on a hiding to nothing as the tough challenger took up the offensive and made things extremely difficult. Nevertheless, Thil, whose stamina was never suspect, gradually got to work on the body and in the last three sessions, although both men were exhausted it was Ara who could barely stand, the unanimous decision being a formality.
