Pole Wrestles Tonight

The Milwaukee Journal – January 17, 1919

Wladek Zbyszko, Polish champion, will make his second appearance in Milwaukee Friday night at the Empress theater, where he is slated to wrestle Pilakopf, giant Finn, in a decision match.  A preliminary tilt will precede the wind-up.  Zbyszko disappointed a packed house two weeks ago when he failed to show here to meet Joe Rogers, being stalled in Iowa.  He is, however, under heavy guarantee now and will not fail to appear.  Following this contest he will take on Joe Londas here in a week in what should be the best wrestling bout Milwaukee has witnessed in years.
