Clipped From Del Rio News Herald
Seattle, Wash., the 6 ft. 3 inch, 255-lb. Texas title holder, has been a pro for 20 years but is hi the midst of his most successful ring achievements. Known in Japan, South Africa, Australia and other areas throughout the world Valentine rallies on strength and ring wisdom to stay at the top of the heavyweights. McDaniel, a full-time devotee to the wrestling profession now, also banked over $100,000 in 1969 and, 'according to Brown, "is getting better all the time." Colorful but serious, the Choctaw warrior wears Indian battle dress into the ring prior to the bouts. Brown feels that "Del Rio will rally to the Indian's corner." A special event of one hour or best two of three falls has been • contracted by Brown between Ben Matta and Sir Charles Montague. The latter gained the tag team decision over Mil Mascaras and Matta two weeks ago in Del Rio, but earned the boos of the Queen City fans for his tactics as a partner of The Great Malenko. Matta asked promoter Brown to sign him and the Englishman in a full hour match "to give'me a chance to get even with that Limey for the way he treated me in Del Rio." Sir Charles was the culprit who tore Matta's white shirt and tie to shreds during the Mil Mascaras-Malenko singles bout. A third bout, yet to be announced will complete the Sept. 16 matches for Del Rio.
