Boxing career

Piet rose to prominence as a lightweight boxer when he challenged Freddie Welsh for the EBU (European) lightweight title. The fight took place at Mountain Ash on 23 August 1909. Piet lasted until the twelfth round when his knee gave way and he retired from the fight. Afterwards Welsh stated that Piet was "The classiest boy I met since I came over, he will trim up a lot of fancied boxers if he goes to the States."
