1940-02-12Windmill Pearce68-23-30
McCullough's Arena, Salt Lake City, Utah, USAWTKO810
referee: Al Ablett
Fox "played with Arcade Pearce for seven rounds, then knocked (Pearce) out in the 8th.." (Associated Press)
1939-12-01Clarence Brown10-4-5
White City Arena, Chicago, Illinois, USANCNC68
referee: Tommy Thomas
The referee stopped the bout, ruling that both fighters were not trying. Both of their purses were withheld. The Chicago Tribune described the bout as a "wrestling match." Fox and Brown substituted for Lem Franklin and Bob Nestell, after Nestell became ill the night before. Only 941 persons attended. Bob Soderman was on hand and later wrote: "..Fox was anything but the master fistic mechanic he had been on September 1, when he had handed this same Clarence Brown an artistic and thorough shellacking. Instead, Tiger Jack acted like he was in a trance, and Clarence Brown behaved as if hew atill under the hypnotic spell that Tiger Jack had weaved over him when they last met. Their exhibition was appalling.." Perhaps the small pay that would have received had something to do with their lethargy.
