The Sydney Morning Herald – June 5, 1949
Ted Christy was fortunate to win over Al Costello in last night’s wrestle at Leichhardt Stadium.
Out on his feet, Christy managed to “leap-frog” a flying tackle which resulted in Costello crashing head first from the ring in the fifth round.
Costello became entangled in the seats and failed to get back into the ring in time.
Each had previously gained a fall.
Alf Vockler (one fall) beat Roy Heffernan in the eight rounds supporting wrestle.
Tommy Jones (10.9) outpointed Sid Fletcher (10.5) in the eight rounds boxing contest.
At Newcastle Stadium Johnny Brown (8.12) outpointed Art Sait (8.12).
