Chicago Tribune – August 18, 1954
Lou Thesz will defend his world heavyweight wrestling championship for the 10th time this year when he faces Stu Gibson of Louisville on promoter Leon Schwartz’s card in Rainbo Arena, 4836 N. Clark St. Gibson has lost only four times in over 400 mat bouts.
The former Louisville Golden Gloves champion turned to pro wrestling at the suggestion of Jack Dempsey, who claimed his arms were much too short for boxing. The bout will be two out of three falls with a 60-minute time limit.
Big Bill Miller will wrestle in the semi-windup with Nick Roberts of California in a two out of three fall, 60-minute scramble.
