Oct. 22, 1961 – ‘Double crosses his own son-in-law’

Yetter has two issues to point out to Pfefer. The first is the change in the programs in Buffalo, and if you look at some of the Buffalo programs in the Gallery section of the our main site, you can see the changes. There's too much repetition from issue to issue to make it worth plunking down some cash. More to the point, Yetter notes that The Sheik is so hot, he caused Pedro Martinez to "double cross" his own son-in-law in a controversial finish to the Oct. 20 main event in Buffalo. Note also that the Gallaghers-Tolos match that day involved the use of blood capsules and apparently not "hardways." The Gallaghers won by disqualification. Chicago promotion muscling in on Martinez' territory. More challenges would follow.
