Chicago Tribune – January 8, 1929
Charles (Midget) Fischer won the referee’s decision in his wrestling match last night at the Broadway Armory with Johnny Meyers, former middleweight champion.
Meyers won the first fall in 58 minutes and 27 seconds with an arm stopper hold, but Fischer came back to take the second fall with a wristlock and cross body hold. The time was 26:03.
The pair then finished the remainder of the two hours permitted by the commission’s rules, after which referee Emil Thiry awarded Fischer the decision because of his aggressiveness.
Lou Talaber won a decision over Tony Hadjich in 34 minutes. In the other preliminaries, Zack Malkov threw Walter Billeter in 21:15 and Jack Smith won the decision over George Mack in a 30-minute bout.
