1936-06-25 : Jack Sharkey 199 lbs beat Phil Brubaker 192 lbs by UD in round 10 of 10

  • Location: Fenway Park, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
  • Referee: Joe O'Connor

"Jack Sharkey projected himself back into the heavyweight picture today as the result of a close but convincing 10 round victory over young Phil Brubaker. Sharkey got up off the floor at Fenway Park last night, gave the 22 year old Brubaker an artistic boxing lesson, and promptly served notice that he's serious about making a comeback. Knocked down, cut and battered by Brubaker's first round rush, Sharkey rallied to outbox, outpunch and outpoint the California clouter. The 33 year old ex-champion, all things considered, waged one of his best fights to score an uphill victory." -Associated Press
