Irslinger v. Boganski

The West Australian – October 29, 1928

Two popular wrestlers in George Boganski and Henry Irslinger will meet in an eight 10-minute rounds contest in His Majesty’s Theatre on Friday night.  These two light-heavy-weights should provide an exciting and spectacular bout.  They were to have met on the Subiaco Oval some weeks ago, but the match had to be postponed because Boganski sustained an injury while training.  He has fully recovered, and his work during the past week has made his supporters confident that the victories of Irslinger will be checked on Friday night.  Irslinger on the other hand, states that he has not been in such good condition for a long while, having worked solidly on the mat with Tom Alley for the latter’s contest with Burmister.  The match should be marked by science and speed.

Ten rounds of boxing will precede the wrestling contest.  Box plans are at J. Gleeson’s Hay-street.
