Mana: 
06/09/52 Birmingham, AL Lou Thesz beat George Bollas

There are advertisements that say Thesz vs Zebra Kid, but in the 6/15/52 Birmingham Times, ad for the next show, it says "Ben Morgan, formerly wrestled as the Zebra Kid, was unmasked by Lou Thesz last Monday night".

I do show a few records of Morgan as "Super Zebra Kid" in 1951 and 1952
