Strangler Lewis vs. Stecher

The Independent, St. Petersburg, Florida – April 25, 1918

New York, April 25.–It will be the “strangle hold” vs. the “scissors pinch” when “Strangler” Ed Lewis of Lexington, Ky., and Joe Stecher, the Nebraska wrestling marvel, come together in Madison Square Garden tomorrow night in another effort to determine the question of their relative supremacy in the grappling game.  It will be the third time Lewis and Stecher have met on the mat.  The previous two matches ended without a decisive victory for either grappler.
