Bonnie Watson Meets Champ Tonight

Daytona Beach Morning Journal – February 27, 1954

Bonnie Watson, who has become a top notcher in girl wrestling, will get her biggest chance to-night.

She will meet World’s champion Mildred Burke in a title bout, the main event of a three bout card at the Beach Arena tonight.  Milo Steinborn, the one time wrestling strongman, will be referee.

This will be Miss Burke’s first appearance here of the Winter season.  The other bouts on the card have Eduardo Perez wrestling Jesse James and Jack Wentworth, returning after a long absence, to meet John James.  The bouts will begin at 8:30 p.m.
