Ricki Starr defeated Australian champion Bud Cody in 7:15 of the Sunnyside Garden wrestling feature last night and promptly was invited to return on promoter Manny Heicklen’s special non-televised show Saturday night to face Antonio the Great, the Italian giant.
Starr will share top billing with the unbeaten tag team of Antonino Rocca and Miguel Perez, slated to tangle with Pampero Firpo and Dr. Jerry Graham.
George Becker and Jack Witzig, who local wrestling fans figure got “rooked” in a battle with the Smith brothers last Saturday night, clash with the bearded New Yorkers in a return number at Memorial Arena tonight.
