Lincoln Daily Star – December 6, 1914
New York, Dec. 5 – Though the wrestling game is not extremely popular just now, there is some talk of a match that will attract much attention if held, as seems likely. Tarro Miyake, who calls himself champion jiujitsu wrestler of the world, is trying to arrange a match with Henry Irslinger, middleweight champion of the world, at catch-as-catch-can. Miyake has been in London for several years, where he met all comers and threw them all. He is matched with George Bothner, welterweight champion of the world for a bout December 14, when Miyake will try to throw Bothner three times in an hour. This is a hard task, as Irslinger can testify, as he tried it a year or two ago and failed. Should Irslinger and the Jap meet it will be under catch-as-catch-can rules, and their weights will be about the same, something in the neighborhood of 165.
