Before a large crowd, of mat fans Cantonwine Won two falls straight, tearing off the "Black Demon's" dU- «guise in the last session after .clamping his neck in the ring ropes. The 220-pounder from Lou Daro's murderers' row In Los Angeles won the first session in 9 minutes and 39 seconds with the famous nock twist In the ropes which gave him his nickname. Referee Mickey McMao- ters untangled the ex-demon who Jumped out of tho ring. Mick counted 20 and the Masked Marvel failed to appear. In fact, Announcer Bill Powers had to go to the basement and drag Louie from a secluded spot In the lavatory before tho fight could be continued. , Tears Off Mask During tho second fall, both wres tiers were In a tangle when they fell on Referee McMasters.
