Australian Wrestler Challenges Roller

Associated Press – May 2, 1908

WICHITA, Kan. – Charles Delivuk, the Australian wrestler, has deposited in the American State Savings Bank of this city $1,000 as a forfeit and has issued a challenge to wrestle Dr. B.F. Roller of Seattle.

Delivuk is thought to be one of the best wrestlers of his weight in America today, although he has not been given full credit for what he has done, this, because he has not the necessary weight to class him with the big fellows.

Delivuk will scale in the neighborhood of 175 pounds. He has wrestled all over the Puget Sound country, and is well known in the state of Washington. Delivuk has a brother in Quincy, Wash., who has backed him in all of his matches in the west.

He claims the wrestling championship of Canada and Australia.
