Londos Has Idea For Mat Sport

Associated Press – June 18, 1935

INDIANAPOLIS — Jim Londos wants to speed up the sport of wrestling.

“Wrestling should be more like boxing,” he said tonight. “Let’s have eight, ten or fifteen three-minute rounds with one fall or a decision. I believe the fans will like it, and it will be better for the wrestlers. No stalling, just wrestle, with no playing around.”
