Thesz Keeps Mat Title Versus Haggerty

Sacramento Union – September 10, 1951

Lou Thesz defended his world’s wrestling championship last night in Memorial Auditorium by throwing Hard Boiled Haggerty with a flying scissors after taking the first fall on a foul.

Thesz was accompanied by his manager, Ed (Strangler) Lewis.

Ronnie Etchison, Sacramento favorite, won two out of three falls from Tom Rice.

Angelo Cistoldi raised the curtain by pinning Ramon Cernades, two out of three.
