Muchnick Tunney Whipper Thesz 1956

Lots of clippings on the night Whipper Watson beat Lou Thesz for the NWA Title Mar 15 1956 in Toronto. This one you may have never seen before, in a scrapbook so just took a photo of it.

Whipper had beat Thesz by dq and special ref Jack Sharkey had declared Whip the NWA champ despite the dq. The NWA ruled that Whipper had not won the title and this was the re-match.
