Portland, Dec. 14 – Bull Martin, that rough and ready grappler from Trenton, N. J. will appear on the mat at the Exposition Building, Monday night, in a preliminary to the Bob (Bibber) McCoy-Al Mercier feature bout, Promoter Chick Hales announced today.
Opposing the Bull will be Richard Stahl of Germany, who, in one local appearance, appeared impressive. The German will battle Bull over the 20 minute route, one fall to win.
The semi-final on Monday night will bring together Earl McCready of Canada, ranked by The Ring Magazine among the 20 leading wrestlers, and Dick Raines of Texas. The latter is new to Portland, having been wrestling in New York where he has met Jim Browning, Dick Shikat, Herman Steinke and Sammy Stein among others.
