McGuirk Wrestles Christy At Civic Auditorium

San Francisco Chronicle – December 12, 1935

Leroy McGuirk, recognized by the trade as light heavyweight champion, returns to action in San Francisco tonight when he tangles with Ted Christy, rugged Sunland heavyweight, in the two-hour, best two in three falls main event on Promoter Frank Schuler’s weekly program at the Civic Auditorium.

McGuirk made a fine impression here earlier this year when he successfully defended his crown on two occasions. A graduate of the amateur ranks, McGuirk is well versed in the game. He wrestles on the scientific order and seldom indulges in rough tactics.

“Red” Lyons, vicious Seattle matster, steps in the ring against the giant Japanese star, Shinuchi Shikuma, in the semifinal – a 30-minute, one-fall encounter.

Tsutao Higami, Japanese “rubber man,” who holds the junior middleweight championship, meets Basanta Singh, veteran Hindu, in a 30-minute, one-fall battle.

“Mysterious Mr. X,” masked marvel, faces Jack Domar of Texas in a 30-minute, one-fall fracas.

“Buzz” Reynolds, 18-year-old Salt Lake boy, opens the evening’s sport in a 15-minute, one-fall match, against Joe Padia of this city.

John Kallos will referee. The first bout starts at 8:30.
