White Wolf Maps Title Bid
Billy White Wolf, one of the most popular wrestlers ever to perform in Portland, will get a long awaited shot at the world heavyweight crown when he meets Buddy Rogers, the recognized champion in the headline attraction of an all star card at Memorial Coliseum Tuesday night.
The title match will be a two of three falls affair, with an hour time limit, and in the audience watching the Indian’s bid for the coveted championship will be Sam Muchnick, head of the National Wrestling Alliance who has announced that the winner will be the heavyweight mat king.
Five other bouts will support the main event.
Bill Savage, the unruly Portlander will oppose Dory Dixon of Jamaica, in the semi windup and special event action supplied by Luther Lindsay and Herb Freeman.
Fritz Von Goering wil lock arms with Shag Thomas and Al Pago Pago will take on Maurice Vachon, the wild frenchman.
There also will be a special feature, Sky Low Low, the midget who recently won a mat tournament for grapplers his size, tangling with Little Beaver.
