Savage, Dr. X Paired For Miner’s Glove

Eugene Register-Guard – July 28, 1977

Dutch Savage will face Dr. X in a coal miner’s glove match in the featured event on the professional wrestling card starting at 8:30 p.m.  Friday at the Lane County Fairgrounds.

A steel-laced glove is to be placed on an eight-foot pipe in the corner of the ring and the first man to get it can use it on his opponent, say promoters of the match.

The semifinal will be a tag team rematch between Lonnie Mayne and Les Thornton teaming up against Sam O. Bass and John Anson.  In the preliminaries, Jay Youngblood will go against Buddy Rose and Rick Youngblood will wrestle Jesse Ventura.
