Lewis Loses To Browning

San Francisco Examiner – June 19, 1935

Because Strangler Lewis stepped outside of the ring and refused to continue during the third fall, referee Joe Gardenfield awarded Jim Browning the decision in their match last night at Dreamland.

Lewis won the first fall in 16 minutes, lost the second in four, and then pulled his “act” after Gardenfield repeatedly warned him for using an illegal throat hold.

Other results: Vincent Lopez defeated Bob Russell, 18 minutes; Hugo De Collelmo threw Milo Steinborn in seven; Willie Davis won from Rudy Skarda in 13, and Ivan Managoff beat Jerry Monahan in eight minutes.
