  • Description

    TWO HEFTY AND BRAWNY GIRLS HAVE UPSET THE WOMEN OF THE ENGLISH TOWN OF PORTSMOUTH. THEIR DECISION TO WRESTLE EACH OTHER TRIGGERED SCORES OF PROTESTS, ESPECIALLY WHEN I WAS LEARNED THAT THE REFEREE WOULD BE A CHURCH OF ENGLAND PRIEST. THE SOUTH COAST TOWN'S ANGRY WOMEN PROTESTED TO THE AUTHORITIES, BUT THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO ABOUT IT. THE MATCH WENT ON. BUT THE REFEREE BACKED OUT FOR FEAR OF EMBARRASSING PARISHIONERS.

    IN ONE CORNER, THERE WAS 17-YEAR-OLD SUGAR PIE HARLEM, A COLOURED GIRL WHOM THE PROMOTERS DESCRIED AS FROM NEW YORK DESPITE THE FACT SHE SPEAKS WITH A DISTINCT NORTHERN ENGLAND ACCENT. IN THE OTHER CORNER - JANNY PEEL, FROM YORKSHIRE AND THE HEAVIER OF THE TWO.

    DESPITE THE WEIGHT DISADVANTAGE, MISS HARLEM WON THE CONTEST. IT WAS ONLY JANNY'S FOURTH DEFEAT IN 40 BOUTE. ON FILM, SHE TAKES A BATTERING, BUT COMES BACK TO PIN BIG JANNY TO THE FLOOR.

    MEANWHILE, THE PROMOTERS PLAN A WHOLE SERIES OF WOMEN'S WRESTLING MATCHES ALONG THE SOUTH COAST - NO MATTER WHAT THE SEASIDE LADIES SAY.
