Cyclone Burns Throws Draak

Boston Globe – April 30, 1920

Cyclone Burns defeated Tommy Draak in two out of three falls in their heavyweight catch-as-catch-can wrestling match at the Grand Opera House last night. Draak scored the first fall in 51m 56s, with a body scissors and a head chancery.

Burns took the second fall, Draak quitting after Burns had punished him severely with a hammerlock and head chancery, in 25m 55s.

The third fall went to Burns in 1m 30s, with a three-quarter wrist lock and a bar arm.

The preliminary was won by Jack Norton of Maiden, who threw James Gentwell of Dorchester with a head scissors and wristlock in 28m 30s.
