George-Savoldi Mat Bout Looms

Associated Press – April 11, 1933

BOSTON – After endorsing the Illinois Athletic Association’s moratorium on wrestling, president Thomas Reardon of the American Wrestling Association tonight said his organization would recognize the winner of an Ed George-Joe Savoldi match as the world champion.

Reardon, who stressed the fact that his organization was not affiliated with the National Wrestling Association, predicted that the Illinois commission’s ban on the mat sport, which followed the Jim Londos-Savoldi bout in Chicago, would help to clarify the wrestling situation.

Paul Bowser, Boston wrestling promoter, said he has started negotiations for a George-Savoldi bout in this city.
