Honolulu Star-Bulletin – January 6, 1966
Ron Reed of Baltimore captured the Hawaiian heavyweight wrestling championship at the Civic Auditorium last night when Luther Lindsey was unable to continue after a head butt.
Reed had won the first fall with a reverse rollover and press, while Lindsey took the second with a dropkick and press.
Nick Kozak, 222-pounder from Houston, lifted the U.S. heavyweight belt from Killer Kowalski when he took the third fall of their match with a reverse rollover and press.
Kowalski won the first fall with a knee to the throat, plus a press, and Kozak evened the match with an airplane spin.
Joe Scarpa and Dick Steinborn were given the referee’s decisions over Ripper Collins and Beauregarde after each team won a fall.
Neff Maiava and The Bandit shared falls, then The Bandit was disqualified for gouging.
