07/11 Portland, OR Lou Thesz beat Ted Christy
07/11 Portland, OR Lou Thesz beat Fritz Schnabel by DQ

07/31 Tacoma, WA Lou Thesz beat Jim Wright
07/31 Tacoma, WA Lou Thesz beat Morris Shapiro
07/31 Tacoma, WA Lou Thesz beat Seelie Samara

The Portland one was a tournament, and the Tacoma one almost certainly was as well. I wouldn't question anyone wrestling more than one match in one night, as it's almost always a tournament, which was a very popular gimmick.
