Italian Matmen Top Sunnyside Card Tonight

Long Island Star-Journal – July 12, 1960

Bruno Sammartino and Ilio DiPaolo, two of the best matmen to ever come from Italy, will wrestle at Sunnyside Garden tonight in two of the six action-packed bouts on promoter Manny Heicklen’s allstar program.

Sammartino, billed as the world’s strongest man, will risk his undefeated streak against Antonio the Great, 400-pound colossus from Italy.  DiPaolo, returning after a long absence, will face Pat Kelly, the rough Irish ace.

The Tolos brothers will take on Ray Albano and Tony Martinelli, while the Bavarian Boys will tangle with Bud Cody and Miguel Torres.  Dr. Jerry Graham, the blond bomber, will meet Gregory Jarque.  The non-TV opener, at 8:30 P. M., pits Pampero Firpo against Miguel Perez.
