Wayne Munn Accepts Match

The Milwaukee Journal – January 20, 1929

Wayne Munn, former champion of the world, will be brought here to meet the winner of the Steinke-Komar bout, which will be held at the Auditorium Wednesday night, officials of the promoting club announced Saturday.  Munn has already accepted the match, which will be held next month.

Komar, who meets the noted Teuton mat star, is one of the biggest grapplers in the business.  He weighs 235 pounds, has a bigger chest than Stanislaus Zbyszko and carries his head around on a neck that measures 20 inches.  Steinke will weigh around 238 when he strips for action.

Four bouts will make up the card, which is topped by Charley Peterson and Frank Aguayo, who will meet for the world light heavyweight championship.
