Pampero Firpo visited Australia in early 1966 for a three month tour. He was quite an imposing character with his large beard. Pampero spent his time here mainly in mid to upper card events, never quite headlining a show. He did have a couple of matches against Dominic De Nucci who was the champ at the time, but I can’t remember if they were title matches or not. He often teamed with Art Nelson or Waldo Von Eric, where he had some great matches against Pepper Gomaz and Dick Steinborn, who were then known as the Whiz Kids. Singles competition included Roy Heffernan, Nick Bockwinkle, Luther Lindsay and many more.
I have an assortment of results from his time in Australia during that time from January to April. Probably not the full results, as January (for example), I only have a match result once a week. Thanks, though!
