This is everything I thought it would be when I first saw it about two years ago. I have to take some time and watch it again to see if it holds up.

What’s the date of the match?

My first impression is that I’m really surprised at how much bigger Thesz is then Verne. Doesn’t look realistic at all that Verne could push Thesz against ropes. He’s really tiny and it stands out given the style they’re working. It’s not like he can pull off a triple jump hurricanrana to show a speed or agility advantage.

The match is from January 25, 1952 in Chiacgo. Thesz was billed at 6'2, 233 and Gagne at 5'11, 218. Gagne was a junior heavyweight when he started out (he debuted in May 1949).
