1935-06-28 Marcel Thil w pts 15 Carmelo Candel, Roland Garros Stadium, Paris, France - IBU. Often reported as a ten-round non-title contest, research by Paul Kennett proved that it involved Thil’s version of the world title over 15 rounds. The fight itself saw Thil (159) winning 13 of 15 rounds on the judges’ cards, with Candel (159¾), shipping an ocean of punishment and outclassed, somehow getting through to hear the final bell, mainly by holding tactics. Thil, despite forcing throughout and administering heavy blows to head and body, was only able to put Candel down once when a solid left hook to the jaw sent the latter to the boards for a count of ‘eight’ in the ninth session.
