Whipper's Ribs

Whipper's Ribs, no not those ones. Whipper was often pictured in the papers doing all the things he loved outside of the ring. He was an avid fisherman and there are many shots of him with his catch of the day. He also enjoyed cooking as shown here and in the recipe for his ribs 

The clipping below touts Whippers scheduled 1956 NWA title bout against Carpentier. The Flying Frenchman injures his leg in a bout with Fred Atkins the previous night in Brampton and shows up at MLG on crutches. Watson takes on Mighty Ursus instead. The recipe was published in a Newmarket paper in 1959
