Irslinger v. Pergantes

The West Australian – November 28, 1928

Claiming that he has greatly improved his condition during his season in Western Australia, Henry Irslinger is confident of his ability to turn the tables on Louis Pergantes – the only man who has beaten him in Australia.  They will wrestle eight ten-minute rounds at His Majesty’s Theatre on Friday night.  Since his arrival in Perth on Friday last, Pergantes, a Greek, has been training systematically.  His numerous matches against all-comers in the Eastern States has worked him into good condition.  He is anxious to prove himself here in order that he might secure a match with his countryman, Kilonis, when the latter visits Perth.

Twelve rounds of boxing will be staged.  Box plans are on view at J. Gleeson’s, Hay-street.
