Pancho Villa
( 79 - 6 - 3 )
Weight: 111 lbs

Georgie Marks
( 57 - 6 - 11 )

In what should have been Pancho Villa's second defence of the World Flyweight Title he won in a vacant title fight with Jimmy Wilde, the Filipino faced American George Marks at Madison Square Garden, New York.

Marks failed to make the weight at the weigh-in so, would not have been able to win the title even if he had been victorious.

The 'Filipino Whirlwind' won by unanimous decision.
