1935-09-13 : Panama Al Brown lost to Pete Sanstol by UD in round 10 of 10

  • Location: Bislet Stadium, Oslo, Norway
  • Referee: Otto Griese
Pre-fight handshake during training


What follows are two Norwegian newspapers' accounts, side-by-side, of Norwegian boxer Pete Sanstol's second fight with Panama Al Brown, held in Bislet, Norway, on September 13, 1935 (as translated by Mr. Morten Larsen):

Round One--Det blev lite boksing. Sanstol maste p?, mens Brown holdt og blokerte og allerde -- nu fikk tilsnakk herfor. Nordmannen virket litt nerv?s. Brown hadde nogen lange, hurtige rette venstre. Den tyske dommer ledet kampen p? en litt egenartet men moget bestemt m?te. Runden blev jevn med 5-5 og plus for Brown p? renere treffere. [There was little boxing. Sanst?l was eager, while Brown was holding and blocking and already (in this first round) got a comment on this. The Norwegian seemed a little nervous. Brown had some long, fast straight lefts. The German referee handled the fight in a little special, but firm way. The round was even with 5-5 and plus for Brown on flush hits.]

Account #2 -- Brown er bevegelig og forsiktig i opreist stilling, Sanst?l sammenb?id og s?kende. Negeren langer ut en rett venstre som sitter, men begynner straks ? holde i n?rkamp; nordmannen driver ham litt mot slutten, men ikke nok til ? sikre noe forsprang. [Brown is on the move and careful in an upright position, Sanst?l is crouching together and hunting. The Negro "stretches" out a straight left that "sits" (hits), but starts straightaway to hold in close in-fighting; the Norwegian punishes him a little toward the end, but not enough to secure any lead.]

Round Two--Denne runde b?d p? ennu mere mas og rot enn f?rste. Sanstol boretsig inn og negeren holdt med sine lange armer slik at det blev sv?rt lite boksing man fikke se. Brown fikk atter tilhold om ikke ? holde. Runden var atter jevn med 5-5 og demme gang et plus for nordmannen. [This round offered even more mess than the first. Sanst?l drilled in and the Negro held with his long arms so that there was very little boxing to see. Brown received another comment and was asked not to hold. The round was again even with 5-5 and this time a plus for the Norwegian.]

Brown stepper unda Sanst?l som allerede nu overtar f?ringen ? Brown f?r midt i runden tilr?d fra dommeren om ? bokse, men vil ikke risikere noe og blir straks litt upopul?r for passivitet. [Brown steps away from Sanst?l who already is taking the lead - in the middle of the round Brown gets a suggestion from the referee to start boxing, but (Brown) appears unwilling to risk anything and becomes immediately unpopular for his passiveness (lack of aggression).]

Round Three--Sanstol angrep i et sett, men fikk, deosverre meget snart sl?op det venstre ?le som begynte ? bl?. Han slo et par ganger for lavt, men fikk inn en del uppercuts og h?ire sving. Negeren holdt i det uendelige og undgikk kamp hvorfor publikum begynte ? pipe. Dette fikk Brown til ? grine av latter. Sanstol vant runden med 5-4.75. [Sanst?l attacked all the time, but unfortunately he very soon received a blow on his left eye, and it started bleeding. He hit a couple of times too low, but managed some uppercuts and a right swing. The Negro seemed to last forever and avoided fighting, which made the audience whistle (boo). This made Brown smile and laugh. Sanst?l won the round with 5-4.75.]

Pete er like efter gongongslag inne med et kort hook som sitter, Brown svarer med rette venstre, hvorav et sitter og to misses. Negeren henger og s?ker ?pninger i clinchutgangen, Sanst?l stepper unda og dukker utmerket. Brown holder begge Sanst?ls hender annenhver gang og kan ikke hindre, at nordmannen vinner runden klart. [Pete is, straight after the bell, in with a short hook that hits; Brown answers with straight lefts: one hits and two miss. The Negro hangs and seeks openings in "clinch exits" (when they break from a clinch); Sanst?l steps away and ducks excellently. Brown holds both of Sanst?l's hands every other time and cannot avoid that the Norwegian wins the round clearly.]

Another pre-fight handshake

Round Four--Denne gikk til Brown som nu fikk inn de reneste treffere. Han slo en gang tydelig for lavt og p?drog sig den f?rste alvorlige advarsel for ? holde. D?rig boksing ogs? i denne omgang som gikk i Brown's fav?r med 5-4.75, slik at stillengen atter var like. [This round went to Brown, who now got in the clearest hits. He hit one time clearly too low and received the first serious warning for holding. Bad boxing also in this round that went to Brown's favor with 5-4.75, so that the standing (point total) again was equal.]

Sanst?l driver igjen, men det blir lite pointsgivende slag, mest skyving og urent. Brown har et par slag i nakken og ogs? et for lavt ? det pipes litt, men ikke alvorlig. Griese er igjen p?passelig fremme og betror negeren at han m? bokse aktivt. [Sanst?l works on again (is the aggressor), but it leads to little point-earning punches, mostly shuffling and (misses). Brown has a couple of punches to (Pete's) neck and also one too low - there is some whistling (jeering), but not serious. Griese is again alert and tells the Negro he has to box aggressively.]

Round Five--Bragte snart Brown en ny alvorlig advarsel for ? holde. Det hjalp litt, men ikke nok til at han undlot ? ?delegge kampen. Sanstol kastet sig inn med slag fra alle mulige retninger. Runden blev jevn 5-5 med et plus for Sanstol. [(This round) presented Brown with yet another serious warning for holding. It helped a little, but not enough to (disqualify him). Sanst?l jumped in with punches from all angles. The round was even with 5-5 with a plus for Sanst?l.]

I pausen har Brown f?tt sin f?rste advarsel for ? holde,, "Die H?nde sind zum Schlagen, nicht zum Festhalten," mener Griese og Brown kvikner til et ?ieblikk. Sanst?l har f?tt et cut over ?iet og negeren letter frem til s?ret. Negeren slapper av igjen, danser bare beregnende rundt i ringen og innskrenker sig i hele resten av runden til et par uppercuts med h?ire; det ene sitter. [During the break Brown received his first warning for holding. "The hands should punch, not used for holding," is Griese's opinion and Brown wakes up for a moment. Sanst?l has a cut over his eye and the Negro aims for the wound. The Negro relaxes again, is only dancing around in the ring and gives only a couple of uppercuts with his right for the rest of the round; one of them hits.]

Round Six--B?d p? adskillig bedre boksing. Nordmannen var stadig den aggressive og hans lange h?ire gikk gjentagne ganger inn. Runden gikk med 5-4? i Sanstol's favor. Negeren fikk en alvorlig advarsel nr. 2. [(There was) much better boxing. The Norwegian was still the more aggressive and his long right hit repeatedly. The round finished with 5-4.5 in Sanst?l's favor. The Negro received his second serious warning (for holding).]

Pete lager stagig kampen, han driver Brown midt i ringen og har ham i taugene, alt sammen mens han stadig s?ker ?pninger ? dessverre mest uten ? finne dem. Et rett venstre sitter, men Brown g?r igjen i clinch og holder ustanselig. Han f?r sin annen advarsel for ? holde og gir sig litt. Men, bare litt ogs?, like efter er han der igjen, og publikum piper noks? intenst. Petes runde klart. [Pete is still leading the fight (the aggressor); he manuevers Brown into the middle of the ring and (then) has him on the ropes, while he continuously seeks openings - unfortunately mostly without finding them. One straight left hits, but again Brown goes into a clinch and holds all the time. He receives his second warning for holding and stops doing it for a little. But only for a little, for rightaway he is at it again, and the audience (complains) quite intensely. Pete's round, clearly.]

Referee Griese, Sanstol & Al Brown

Round Seven--Sanstol ?pnet med tre lynsnare rette venstre og fulgte op med nogen h?ire. Sanstol kjorte stadig og var atter den beste. Brown hadde vanskeligheter med ? treffe nordmannen som stadig duket. Sanstol's runde 5-4.75. [Sanst?l opens with three very quick straight lefts and follows up with a straight right. Sanst?l attacked all the time and was again the best. Brown had difficulties hitting the Norwegian who dived (ducked) all the time. Sanst?l's round 5-4.75.]

Pete hviler litt og f?r noen rette f?lere fra negeren; men like efter er v?r mann der med et rush, to rette st?t g?r inn og et venstre sving. Negeren til gjengjeld et par hooks og et h?rdt dypt h?ire sving. [Pete rests a little and received some straight feelers from the Negro, but right afterward is our man there with a rush, two straight blows go straight in and a left swing. The Negro for his part (made) a couple of hooks and a hard and deep right swing.]

Round Eight--Negeren var nu best i n?rkamp og slo best, men nordmannen var stedig den angripende. Runden gikk med 5-4.75 til Brown. [The Negro was now the better in close in-fighting and was hitting best, but the Norwegian was still (doing) the most attacking. Round goes 5-4.75 to Brown.]

Brown begynner ? bokse straks efter gongongslag.., lett til bens ennu, men det er klart at nordmannens intense, men urene bomgardement til kroppen m? ha gjort sin virkning. Noen uppercuts fra Brown sitter, og stadig g?r han med hooks efter Sanst?ls ?ie, som bl?r temmelig sterkt. Sanst?l driver stadig motstanderen, han lager kampen og har midt i runden evige slagserier til kroppen. [Brown starts boxing immediately after the bell, still light-footedl, but it is evident that the Norwegian's intense, but unclean(?) bombardment to the body must have worked. Some uppercuts from Brown hit, and all the time he tries hooks aiming at Sanst?l's eye, which bleeds pretty heavily. Sanst?l is continuously attacking his opponent; he "makes" (delivers)? the fighting and has in the middle of the fight a continuous series of punches to the body.]

Round Nine--Sanstol gikk dog stadig agressivt til verkes i et rivende tempo som bragte negeren ut av belansen og tvang denne til stadige blokerringer. Sanstol vant denne runde klart. 5-4? for nordmannen. [Sanst?l went at it still aggressively (and) at a high tempo that brought the Negro out of balance and forced this (him?) to defend himself repeatedly. Sanst?l won this round clearly. 5-4.5 to the Norwegian.]

Runden arter sig som den fore-g?ende, Sanst?l g?r op og negeren henger sig p? ham. Sanst?l finner ogs? frem et par uppercuts men det er ikke tilstrekkelig dybde i dem. [The round ended up like the previous; Sanst?l goes up and the Negro hangs on to him. Sanst?l also finds a couple of uppercuts, but there is not enough depth (power?) in them.]

Round Ten--Gikke i et hektisk tempo. Sanstol's armer arbeidet i den reneste hvirvel og han var ogsa nu best idet Brown her intet fikk utrettet. Han m?tte gi tapt for kamphumer, agressivitet og energi. Runden gikk i et eneste jublende, kokende brus fra tilskuerne. Nordmannen slo sving, rette venstre og uppercut og vant ogs? denne runde 5-4?.

S?vel Sanstol som Brown var endel desorientert over rundenes forlep. Vi h?rte at Brown spurte herom og Sanstol forklarte afterp? at han trodde det var ?ttende runde som begynte da klokken l?d for siste runde. [It went on at a hectic tempo. Sanst?l's arms worked like a tornado and he was again the better as Brown could not accomplish anything. He had to give in (reach down?) for his fighting spirit, aggression and energy. The round went on with a cheering, boiling (heated?) noise from the audience. The Norwegian used swings, straight lefts and uppercuts and won this round also 5-4.5. Both Sanst?l and Brown were somewhat confused about the round's number. We could hear Brown asking and Sanst?l answer that he thought it was the eighth round when the bell sounded for the last round.]

Og siste runde benytter Brown innledningsvis til ? s?ke en avgj?relse ved knock out; men han faller snart tilbake til sin litt indolente holdning, og Sanst?l overtar igjen f?ringen, dessverre stadig med lite rene slag. [And in the last round Brown tries in the beginning to seek a win by knockout, but he soon falls back to his somewhat "indolent" attitude, and Sanst?l again takes the lead, unfortunately with few (well-placed) blows.]

Griese har et lite blikk p? sin blokk f?r arm i v?ret. Den seiren er vel Pete's st?rste, og vi f?r h?pe betydninsfulleste. Norge f?lger ham og hans sympatiske venn og manager Raoul Godbout videre ... og lykke til. Adi. [Griese takes a brief look at his notepad before raising the arm of the winner. That victory seems to be Pete's greatest, and we hope his most significant. Norway follows him and his sympathetic friend and manager Raoul Godbout onwards ..... and good luck. Adi.]
