State Mat Champions To Meet Friday Night

The Milwaukee Journal – March 9, 1927

Champions of two states will meet Friday night at the Gayety theater when Ernest Scharpegge, Milwaukee, tackles Buck Olson, Minneapolis.  The Milwaukeean has laid claim to the Wisconsin heavyweight wrestling title, while Olson is generally acclaimed the champion of Minnesota.  They are about evenly matched as to size and weight.

Stanley Stasiak will attempt to carry out his part of the contract to throw Nick Gotch and Big Bull Beth in 30 minutes.

Cliff Hofland will referee both matches, the first starting at 10:30 p. m.
