According to the November 28, 1932 edition of the Oklahoman, Fischer was on the trail
of Hugh Nichols, a rival claimant to the light heavyweight championship.  He beat Billy
Edwards in Kansas City in 1930 and was recognized by the Illinois, Missouri and
California State Athletic Commissions as titleholder.  In 1931, he was presented with a
title belt following a match in Chicago.  He stated that the National Wrestling Association
was an "outlaw" organization and a "paper" organization.  It had no authority to designate
any wrestler a champion.  Fischer agreed to wrestle anyone, including those the NWA
recognized as titleholders in both the middleweight and light heavyweight divisions.
