Thesz Grapples Schnabel Tonight

Rocky Mountain News – March 7, 1939

Denver sees one of the several dozen wrestling champions tonight in City Auditorium.

The gent in question is Mr. Lou Thesz, victor over Colorado’s Everette Marshall recently. The 226-pound Hungarian from St. Louis meets Hans Schnabel, the allegedly meanest guy in the neighborhood, in a two-out-of-three-fall set-to, with a 90-minute time limit.

Lee Wykoff takes on Steve Kayak (no relation to Kayak II); Joe Corbett meets Roy Dunn, and George Rigosky grapples Ronnie Etchison in other bouts.
