The West Australian – November 29, 1928
Wrestling enthusiasts are speculating as to whether Henry Irslinger, former middle-weight champion of the world, who has yet to lose a match in Perth, can turn the tables on Louis Pergantes, who caused him to surrender in their match in Melbourne. They will wrestle eight 10-minute rounds in His Majesty’s Theatre to-morrow night. Irslinger has proved himself in Perth, and the fact that Pergantes beat him in Melbourne stamps the Greek as a wrestler of class. Pergantes has also figured against men of the type of Thye, Zarynoff, and Eklund. He is on the trail of Kilonis, who claims the heavy-weight championship of Greece, and as that wrestler may soon be in Perth, Pergantes is anxious to justify himself to-morrow night.
Twelve rounds of boxing will precede the wrestling. Box plans for the programme are on view at J. Gleeson’s, Hay-street.
