GOING BACK 56 YEARS

October 17, 1959
LEXINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA

GEORGE BECKER

LARRY 'CRUSHER' HAMILTON

GEORGE BECKER, hero of many wrestling fans of the Carolinas and Virginia, will have a big task awaiting him when he returns to the LEXINGTON YMCA tonight after a lengthy absence.

The grappling idol is scheduled to meet nasty LARRY 'CRUSHER' HAMILTON, a brusing heavyweight, in the main event of a four bout program.

HAMILTON asked for a crack at BECKER when he heard the hero was moving back into the area.

"He might be coming back, but he won't be here for long," stated HAMILTON. "After I whip him like a dog, he'll tuck tail and run back to wherever he was."

Tag team action is also on tap for tonight with MARTINO LORENZA and ENRIQUE TORRES teaming to battle the veteran ruffians TED CHRISTY and JOE KAPA.

Both matches are set for the best two-out-of-three falls.

Two preliminary bouts are set with CYCLONE ANAYA meeting CHARLIE LAY, and in the 8:15 opening match, PRINCE OMAR faces popular STEVE BOLUS.
