Promoter Bob Luce has installed 1,000 extra seats for Saturday’s International Ampitheatre card in anticipation of an all-time indoor record
turnout for Chicago that may exceed 12,300.

The arena normally seats 11,000 for wrestling. The Amphitheatre record is 12,011 set Dec. 9, 1960- when standing room was permitted.

The headline event is what Luce calls a “natural” attraction pitting world champion Verne Gagne against 27 year old Blackjack Lanza, a virtual
unknown preliminary wrestler until a year ago. Lanza is unvs. in 12 straight Chicago bouts beginning Aug. 11, 1967.

Lanza has the statistical edge. He outweighs Gagne by 44 pounds, 276 to 232, and is taller by seven inches.

In Chicago bouts this year Lanza has beaten Wilbur Snyder, The Crusher, Igor Vodik, Big Luke and Pat O’Connor in that order. It will be the
first time Gagne has ever wrestled Lanza.

No idea which newspaper published the above article. I found the article in Terry Robert Justice’s book of the year 1968.

Dr. X actually vs. Gagne in the 3rd fall but Gagne’s legs were on the ropes. Dr. X started heading back to the locker room thinking he had won
the AWA World Heavyweight Title. The Crusher stopped Dr. X on the way to the locker room grabbing the AWA World Heavyweight Title
from Dr X and tossed the strap back in the ring. Referee Wilson finally realized Gagne’s feet were on the ropes and ordered the 3rd fall to be
restarted. By this time, Dr. X was back in the locker room and was counted out of the ring.
