Heavyweight Wrestling Championship there when he defeated Albert Wall.

Jag Sing Sidhu (Southall, West London) facing ‘Full Contact’ Chris
Botherway (Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire), Adam Thorn (Nottingham)
squaring off against Jamie James (Leicester), Mr. E (unknown) taking
on Simon Cann (Loughborough) and the United Kingdom Wrestling Champion Steve Stryka (Lemmington Spar) against the British Junior Heavyweight Champion Kyd Flash (unknown).

The semi finals and final shall be held in March and April

Also topping the card is an international showcase when the masked
foreign campaigner El Ligero (Los Sanchos, Mexico) takes on Scotty
Hexx (Sheffield) in a Mexican V England contest.

The venue for this bill is the Charnwood Social Club, Shelthorpe
Avenue, Loughborough. Doors open at 7pm and the first match commences at 7.30pm. Tickets are £3.00 for Children, OAP and NUS Card Holders and £5.00 for Adults. More information is online at
