1957-02-13 Joe Brown w rsc 10 (15) Wallace Bud Smith, Miami Beach Auditorium, Miami, Florida, USA - WORLD. Referee: Jimmy Pearless. Dancing in and out and scoring at will with both hands, especially with the left jab, Brown (134¾) gave his challenger a boxing lesson throughout and his supremacy was so great that one official failed to give Smith (134) a round. Although chasing his man, Smith ran into cul-de-sacs and when he really opened up in a bid to save the fight, in the eighth, he came off worse and thereafter took a lot of punishment. By now outclassed, Smith, his left eye almost closed, cut on the right eye and bleeding badly from the mouth, was allowed to start the tenth after being punished in the ninth and was soon put under siege by a rampant Brown. Having slipped over and seemingly unable to stem the flow of punches being tossed at him, Smith was pulled out of the fight by the referee following the bell to end the tenth.
