1939-08-14 : Sixto Escobar 123 lbs lost to Jimmy Perrin 125 lbs by UD in round 10 of 10

  • Location: Municipal Auditorium, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
  • Referee: Walter Rogers

"Perrin had an edge in all rounds except the tenth." The New York Times the New Orleans Times-Picayune, was a little kinder, giving Escobar a draw in the 8th and 9th rounds. Escobar landed a good right hand to win the 10th.

"Perrin looked extremely good because he was superior to the bantam king in every department of boxing. Jimmy hit harder, more often, had a wider assortment of punches, blocked better, forced the fighting and was superior on the outside and in close fighting." New Orleans Times-Picayune
