Dnahar.....and Box o'Daylight....
Young Tommy became California State Bantam Champion in 1932 when he defeated Newsboy at Sacramento, in what was Brown's first defense of that title. Jack Dempsey was the referee in that match, which set a gate record of sorts for the Memorial Auditorium in the Ca. State Capitol. I consider Young Tommy to be one of the four top bantams produced by the Philippines, with Speedy Dado, Pablo Dano and Little Dado being the other three----this, of course, relative to the first 40 year period extending from 1925, when boxing was legalized in California, and up to 1965, when the alphabet titles became a part and parcell of the fight game in our midst.
Jo Tei Ken was a marvel of sorts by becoming the very first major Korean boxing star to show in Caifornia, even though I believe he was a Japanese born in Korea. His best showings were against Speedy Dado and Young Tommy, although I believe Jo took part in that heralded bantam tourney held in Montreal 1934 in hopes of crowning a new world champion. Sixto Escobar came away with recognition as global kingpin mainly because he had impressed by stopping Mexico's Baby Casanova in one of the tournament bouts before winning the finale.
