Boxing Day wrestling show scheduled for Merritt
(Merritt Herald, Wednesday, December 18, 1968)
“Some excitement is in store for Nicola Valley residents on Boxing Day this year. For the first time in many years, a live wrestling show be seen in Merritt and everyone is invited not to miss this great attraction.
Featured will be a girl wrestler, Terry Lachance, a petite 133 lb. five foot two brunette Massachusetts girl of French Canadian ancestry. Terry, who has always been interested in sports, played every sport open to girls in high school and her father was a pro-boxer. A chance viewing of a girl wrestler on television was what first got her interested in this sport so she talked to promoters and sports writers in Boston and other cities who all gave her encouragement.
Also featured on the program will be “Terrible Ted”, a 600 lb. seven foot tall wrestling bear, who is the world’s largest wrestling bear “undefeated in 1500 pro. bouts.”
A prize of $1,000 is being offered to any man who can pin him in a “battle of man and beast.”
The show will be held at 8 p.m. in the Oddfellows Hall on December 26, Boxing Day and the wildest action is promised.”
