HOOKS AND JABS

(By Pete Baird, New Orleans LA Times-Picayune, Sunday, August 21, 1960)

The future is not very bright at all for boxing here in the months to come … (One) obstacle, many believe, is that mixed bouts are not imminent what with Gov. Davis having his hands full trying to keep segregation in the public schools. Thus this is hardly the time for the boxing commission to plug for integration in the fight racket.

So the ring fans have to turn to wrestling – and what a revolution! I never would have believed there would be so much interest in that sport here, but times are changing – everything is changing.

Anyway, the grapplers are making hay all over the country and Joe Gunther aims to reap all he can here by bringing in the best big boys he can find. Seems he found a couple of big Japanese named Mitsu Arakawa and Kinji Shibuya who have some judo holds called chop and "claw."

It's a shame Jim Murtagh, who passed away recently, wasn't around to see the 6,000 and $7,600 gate last week at the Auditorium, but at least his widow, Ernestine, is part of the promotion along with Manda Gunther, Joe's wife.

Joe aims to put on top shows whenever he can get the Auditorium. His next show will be Thursday night. Gorgeous George, perfume and all, will be on the next show, according to Joe.

BRUISER IN HOT WATER – "Lafayette, I ain't coming." That, in effect, is what Dick the Bruiser said Friday night as he swam languidly in a New Orleans pool. And those words cost him $500 and an indefinite suspension.

Seems the Bruiser was billed for a tag-team bout in Lafayette Friday but decided "they don't need me" so he failed to show. The Louisiana boxing commission didn't take kindly to that so it fined him the $500 and will give it to promoter Harry Romero to help compensate for his loss when the star was absent.

Martin Burke, commissioner, said they were trying hard to make all states recognize such suspensions, and Emile Bruneau is going to press for it at the boxing commissions' convention in Mexico City. "Already Chicago heard about this deal," said Burke, "and asked us to go easy on the Bruiser. But we must protect the promoters as well as others in wrestling and you can't do it without penalizing offenders."

In wrestling some might get away with taking a dive, but a swim can be costly.

New Orleans LA: August 22, 1960 (Monday)
Wrestler Dick the Bruiser is ordered by the Louisiana boxing commission to pay Lafayette LA promoter Harry Romero $212.50 for expenses incurred when the Bruiser no-showed a card there Friday, Aug. 19 … In addition, the commission levied a $250 fine on the Indiana athlete with the understanding he is to appear in Lafayette within 30 days and pay the reimbursement and fine within 72 hours. The Bruiser, attending in person, said "the whole thing was a misunderstanding, a mistake on my part."

HOOKS AND JABS

(By Pete Baird, New Orleans LA Times-Picayune, Sunday, August 28, 1960)

(column excerpt) … (Dick the Bruiser) was put on the carpet last week by the boxing commission and fined $500 for running out of his engagement at Lafayette. That wasn't a terrific blow to the Bruiser, however. During the commission session the Bruiser was asked how much dough he makes a month. "It fluctuates (goes up and down, boys)," said Richard. (Chairman Emile) Bruneau said, "But you must know approximately what you make." Replied the B., "It runs between $4,000 and $8,000 a month." If the average is six big ones, the mean man picks up $72,000 per annum. So what's $500 to the Bruiser who was on a swimming party here when he was supposed to be tag-teaming in Lafayette?

VIEWING THE NEWS        
(By Bill Keefe, New Orleans LA Times-Picayune, Tuesday, September 27, 1960)

(column excerpt) … Wrestling interests in Alabama, where Joe Gunther zoomed the mat game next to football as a sports attraction, are beckoning Gunther to return and once more take the helm as promoter. But Gunther (has) turned down the offer and said even if he wanted to make the change he'd have trouble getting his wife to leave their adopted New Orleans.

"We've lived here for more than twenty years and probably will remain for the rest of our lives," said Joe. "Crescent City mat fans have been loyal with their regular attendance and now that we are in a position to bring in all the topflight wrestling talent, we aim to stay and continue surpassing attendance-wise cities with much larger populations."

Gunther said he had to switch his Municipal Auditorium date to Tuesday of this week as it was the only date available.

"We didn't want to miss the chance to show Pepper Gomez, whom the fans have poured in requests to see in action against Dick the Bruiser," Gunther said. The latter said the expected huge crowd Tuesday night will bring the total attendance mark well past the 15,000 figure for the month of October.

Emile Bruneau, chairman of the Louisiana State Athletic Commission, is supervising wrestling with the same diligence he does the boxing game and Bruneau says he and other commission members are happy with talent and attractions Gunther is presenting.

"Most of the leading wrestlers are college graduates and well-behaved fellows and can hold their own in conversations on any given subject," said Emile.
