Erickson soon found out how slick Panama Al was and reverted to foul tactics after the champion had built up a big lead.
In the fourth round, Erickson who was born in Sicily but lived in Brooklyn, New York floored the champion with a low blow. When Brown arose to commence battle, the challenger hit him low once more and Panama Al hit the canvas. Referee Jack Dorman disqualified the challenger who had his purse suspended.
