NORTH YAKIMA, Wash. – Lou Buchholtz, heavyweight champion wrestler of Washington, has received an offer from a prominent sporting man of Tacoma to manage him in a series of matches on the mat. Buchholtz says he will accept the offer and immediately start to condition himself for a busy season.
The local wrestler has met Frank Gotch and “Farmer” Burns on the mat, and his showing in each instance was such that he is rated among the topliners. He is anxious to meet either Dr. Roller of Seattle, or Victor “Sharkey” McLaglen of Tacoma.
