The Sporting Calendar Coney Island Velodrome Wrestling Tonight

Download PDF for this date

The first of the big time mat carnivals comes to the Coney Island Velodrome tonight when Ed Don George, former world’s champ, takes on Gino Garibaldi. Don George and Londos are signed but if Garibaldi tosses the former champ, the Italian will meet the Greek.

This bout tops a splendid supporting card. Everett Marshall grapples against Joe De Vito of Italy. Eli Fischer meets Mike Romano and Abe Kashey meets Headlock Allen of Paterson.
