French Wrestler Arrives

The Argus – November 10, 1937

Francois Fouche, the French wrestler, arrived from Sydney by aeroplane yesterday for his contest with Matros Kirilenko, of Russia, at West Melbourne on Saturday night. Fouche is a magnificently pro- portioned athlete. He is 6ft. 4in. in height and weighs about 16st. 71b. He has been wrestling for 11 years, and has had about 700 contests.

Fouche defeated Vic Christy in New Zealand by two straight falls in five rounds, and at Portland, Oregon, this year pinned Paul Boesch, who visited Australia last year, twice in 45 seconds. Before leaving for New Zealand Fouche had not been defeated for 18 months.
