The San Francisco Call – December 7, 1910
CHICAGO, Dec. 6. – The championship aspirations of Peter Nogert, the Boer wrestler who came here in quest of Frank Gotch’s crown, were given a severe setback last night when Yussiff Mahmout, the Bulgarian, won from the South African in straight falls without apparent effort. Mahmout won the first fall in 9:30 with a double bar-arm and the second in 2:30 with a half Nelson and leg lock. Mahmout, who was at least 40 pounds lighter than his opponent, assumed the aggressive in both bouts.
