During the winter of 1955, officials brought professional wrestlers Sandor Szabo, Tom Rice,
and possibly others to Anchorage for the "Anchorage Fur Rendezvous." Szabo annexed
the Alaska Heavyweight championship while on this tour of Alaska.

In February of 1957, Szabo reportedly returned to Alaska and beat Lord James Blears.

Professional wrestling came to Fairbanks on Saturday, July 6, 1957 when National
Wrestling Alliance World Heavyweight champion Lou Thesz battled Szabo to a draw at
Griffin Park.  The match received tremendous publicity with a banner stating "Heavyweight
Wrestling Crown Goes on Line Tonight," above the newspaper title on the front page of the
Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.  Four days later, Doug Thomas in the same paper, wrote that
"The general fan reaction was that of disappointment however, one fan summed it up
thusly, 'It isn't that the match wasn't any good, I just expected much better in a title bout.'
Others may consider his comment mild." The promoter was Andy Edge and Ace Williams
was the referee.  Szabo reportedly spoke English, Slavic and Hungarian.  Thesz spoke
English and German.

In Anchorage on February 19, 1958, Mr. Moto beat Sandor Szabo to capture the Alaska
Heavyweight championship, winning two-of-three-falls.  Szabo had held the belt for two
years, since its inception.
