New Zealand's “Lofty” Blomfield
New Zealand's “Lofty” Blomfield.
Wrestling his way to success through the elimination tournament conducted in New Zealand this winter, Blomfield, the young New Zealand wrestler is now to be matched with the world title holder Nagurski in Los Angeles early in the New Year. The rise of Blomfield is a romance of sport and whereas he wrestled in America a few short seasons ago as one of the rank and file he will return as a logical challenger to the world crown. After fulfilling that important bout in America, Blomfield will travel to England to prove his worth in the cradle of British sporting activities.
