Bain had over 100 pro fights, the highlight of which was his three-round knockout of German middleweight champion Herman Hersch Jan. 2, 1929. Following his boxing career (1924-34), he developed a second career as a technical advisor for many boxing films and appeared in several, including Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962).
