Barend, Bockwinkel In Draw

Honolulu Star-Bulletin – February 24, 1966

Nick Bockwinkel and Johnny Barend wrestled to a draw in a professional wrestling match last night at the Civic Auditorium.

Bockwinkel took the first fall with an abdominal stretch and Barend the second with an atomic drop. Time ran out before either matman could gain the decider.

In the six-man tag team match, the team led by Johnny Barend defeated Neff Maiava’s crew. Maiava took the first fall over Barend but he and his partners were disqualified when they threw all their opponents out of the ring. Barend took the deciding fall over Bockwinkel.

The Golden Terror used a body slam and a half-crab to subdue Beauregarde. Fuji Fujiwara and Dean Higuchi wrestled to a draw.

Illness prevented the appearance of Japan’s Kenji Inoki, who had been booked.
