Reed Throws Waino

The Eugene Register-Guard – December 9, 1930

Waino Ketonen, Finnish wrestler and holder of the world’s junior middleweight championship, lost Monday evening at Albany to Robin Reed, of Reedsport, according to Herb Owen, who saw the match.  Waino won the first fall in 25 minutes but Robin returned for the second and gave Ketonen a bad eye when he kicked him during the process of an armstretch.  Reed whip wristlocked him and took the fall.

Ketonen returned for the third fall but his eye was getting worse and Reed made short work of him.
