Owen Offers Triple Event

The Oregonian – November 1, 1940

For the first time in eight years of wrestling promotion in Portland Herb Owen will offer three main events Friday night at the Labor Temple arena, each for two falls out of three with a 45-minute limit.

Topping the list will be Bulldog Jackson, the “Yukon Terror.” A last-minute switch in the card pits Jackson against Tara Ito, Japanese jiu-hitsu expert, in the final event.

Local fans will get their first glimpse of Billy Raburn, Georgia, who recently won the Pacific Coast light heavyweight title, in the second one. Raburn will meet George Kitzmiller, Portland.
