Shortly after this bout, DeVos was shot in the right arm by an Arab during a brawl and was lucky to live, as the bullet had severed an artery. Newspapers reported his arm shrank over an inch in diameter and that he had lost all control over its movement. Predictions were he could never fight again, however he did make a brief comeback in the spring 1934.

Clivilles "who was regarded only as a trial horse for DeVos... astounded the gathering of 2500 persons by stopping the Belgian with two punches. Soon after the opening bell Clivilles staggered DeVos with a straight right to the jaw and followed swiftly with a hard left hook to the chin that floored DeVos for the full count." New York Times
