Associated Press – January 24, 1931
CHICAGO – The National Boxing Association does not recognize any champion in the field of wrestling, General John V. Clinnin, president of the organization, said today.
General Clinnin’s statement was made following information that Jim Londos had been circulating a photostatic copy or a reproduction of a letter written by Stanley Isaacs while acting as head of the N.B.A. in 1930 purporting to indorse Londos as the National Boxing Association heavyweight titleholder.
“The National Boxing Association, in annual convention at Omaha in October, 1930, eliminated wrestling from its scope of control,” Clinnin said.
