The Winnipeg Free Press Friday, October 7, 1966 from a column called Time Out with Maurice Smith

A New Promoter

Recently it was mentioned in this column that Alex Turk after 22 years in the game, had given up promoting wrestling in Winnipeg. But local mat enthusiasts will still be able to enjoy their favorite sport for Al Tomko, himself a wrestler of note, has decided to get into the business of promoting and wuill stage his first card October 17.

Tomko will work with the Minneapolis based group headed by Vern Gagne and Wally Karbo. These two men by the way, are probably the largest promoters of wrestling in the United States. They provide matches for such cities as Milwaukee, Chicago, Denver, Omaha and many other smaller centres in the mid-west United States. In addition, they recently took over in Montreal, once one of the greatest hotbeds for wrestling in North America.

Gagne is also in the boxing business. He’s manager of Ron Marsh, a young heavyweight out of Kansas, who has built up quite an impressive record within the last year. The other night in Milwaukee, he won his 13th fight. Most of his victories have come via the TKO route. Gagne thinks his man is just about ready to take on the likes of George Chuvalo and might be interested in promoting the fight here.

Marsh, by the way, is unique among the ranks among professional boxers in that he holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Kansas. He often is a substitute teacher in Minneapolis High Schools.

Note from justahamandegger: The paper said Verne had been injured earier in the evening. I don't know if they meant at the convention center or on t.v. (it was a Saturday). I don't know how either, but on the first 2 cards for 1967, Verne seems to be feuding with Killer Kowalski. I think Kowalski attacked him.
