Al Pereira Meets Abe Kashey On Mat Thursday

Washington Post – December 14, 1937

Al Pereira, the man mountain from Portugal who claims the European wrestling championship, will return to Turner’s Arena for his second shot Thursday night on the Christmas Fund benefit card.

Pereira, who stole last week’s show with a victory over Abe Kashey, the Syrian sizzler, has been matched with Vanka Zelezniak, the Russian Cossack, in a special 30-minute match in support of the feature bout between Jesse James and Chief Thunderbird.

Pereira has to his credit a draw with Jim Londos. That was last week in Baltimore when the ring broke down, much to the embarrassment of both wrestlers.
