1936-08-01 Sixto Escobar w rsc 13 (15) Tony Marino, Dyckman Oval, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA – NY/NBA. Referee: Billy Cavanagh. Dropped five times in the second round from heavy right-hand smashes to the jaw, somehow Marino (115¼) kept going against all odds until the referee pulled him out of the contest during the interval following the 13th, both eyes cut and blood pouring from nose injuries.

While Escobar (117½) proved to be a fighting champion with the punch of mule this was the end of Marino’s world title aspirations, and just six fights later, on 30 January 1937, at Ridgewood Grove, Brooklyn, NYC, having collapsed after being beaten over eight rounds by Indian Quintana he died from a cerebral haemorrhage a day later.
