Quite a few BOXERS 'tried' and 'flirted' with Wrestling especially when they became
'too old' to be credible and effective as Boxers!
A Classic example of this was PRIMO CARNERA-The WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT BOXING
CHAMPION for 12 Months between JUNE 1933 and JUNE 1934!!
The 'Ambling Alp' was going strong as a Wrestler in 1950-16 Years after he lost his World
But and Unbelievably he was STILL Wrestling Top Wrestlers in 1960!!-26 Years on!!
Here he is at LEICESTER in MARCH 1960 taking on our own-at the Time-BRITISH
HEAVYWEIGHT Wrestling Champion-BILLY JOYCE-NOT for the Title of course!
Must have been an Incredible Match?-I wonder how it went?-What was the Result?
Quite a 'Coup' for the Promoter?....
