Bronk Whips Bollas, Sans Referee

Minneapolis Star – April 21, 1951

Bronko Nagurski and George Bollas, unimpeded by referee Wally Karbo’s presence, turned off the stops at the St. Paul Armory Friday night until the Bronk was declared the unofficial winner at 22:30 by the timekeeper.

Karbo was resting peacefully in the dressing room after being flattened by Bollas and carried from the ring.

Leo Nomellini pinned Stan Mayslack at 11:27 in the semi-windup, and Pat O’Connor won the special event when Hans Hermann was disqualified for illegal tactics.

Steve Gob and Johnny Moochy drew in the 30-minute opener.
