Big Future for Wrestling.
Confirmation of the proposed visit to New Zealand of Dean Detton, former holder of the world wrestling title, has been received. With Detton assured, Steele returning to New Zealand, and the winner of the Ngurski-Londos world title match being contacted with an offer of £7000 for a title match in New Zealand the indications are that New Zealanders are going to see wrestling of an exceptionally high standard. Original plans called for a title match with Lofty Blomfield, New Zealand champion, as one of the principals, but with the talent available it will not occasion any surprise if the Dominion of New Zealand Wrestling Union orders an elimination tourney, with the winner to meet the champion.
