Miami Daily News gave the age of Bobby Britton as 15-years old on his pro debut.

Thanks for the links, Senya13. It appears that Bobby Britton was 13 years old when he made his pro debut despite the assertion that he was 15. However, fudging one's age was very common among young professional boxers.
