Kalmikoffs Beat Leo, DiPaolo

Minneapolis Tribune, July 18, 1956

Ivan and Karol Kalmikoff battled a throng of chair-throwing spectators as well as Leo Nomellini and Ilio DiPaolo to score another wrestling victory at the Armory Tuesday night.

The final decisive pin came at nine minutes when Ilio missed a flying tackle and flew into the third row. He staggered back into the ring with the aid of spectators. One spectator attempted to hit Ivan with a chair, missed and banged Ilio across the eyes. The pain-racked Ilio then gave up.

While all this was going on, Nomellini was pummeling Karol in the other corner of the ring.

The first fall was credited to Nomellini at 8:43. Leo first threw Ivan intot he ropes with a whip and then caught him coming off the ropes with a shoulder block. From then it was an easy matter to make the pin.

Karol pinned Ilio at 2:57 to even the count. After Ilio spun Ivan outside the ropes and followed him outside, Karol caught Ilio in the ribs and then used a knee stomp for the win.

Other results:

Hans Schmidt, 248, Munich, Germany, pinned Karl Gray, 257, Milwaukee, Wis., 2:28

Roy McClarty, 237, Winnipeg, pinned Johnny Moochy, 256, Centuria, Wis., 28:44.

Jim Bernard, 250, and Red Bastien drew in 30 minutes.
