I am a writer of sports books from Huddersfield. I would like to concentrate my next project on local hero Douglas Clark and his extraordinary life, culminating in him becoming the first(?) “All-In” World Heavyweight Champion.
Any information on the wrestling scene of this period (1910-1940) would be greatly appreciated. I am particularly interested in his background in wrestling. He began in the “Cumberland & Westmorland” style, before moving to Catch-as-Catch-Can and finally, All-In. Were all of these styles worked? Or was C&W and CaCC legit, before “pro-wrestling” techniques were introduced?
Than you in advance.
PS. My first published book, “From Triumph to Tragedy: The Chapecoense Story” is available now.
