World Light Heavyweight Title (New England)

Other Regional Territories: pre-1990s

World Light Heavyweight Title (New England)

I never knew there was a lineage prior to the match where George Becker defeated Steve Passas in 1939/01/20 in Bridgeport. In fact, Passas was a multiple-time champion throught the 1930s.

Looks like this title was recognized by the New England promoters who were not associated with Pau Bowser.

RIP - Bill Robinson (1939 - 2014)

Jack Shannon of Sceintific Wrestling reports:
I am unbelievably sad to report that my very good friend Billy Robinson passed away today. I hadn't heard from him in days so I contacted his apartment complex to check in on him. When I called back for a progress report the apartment manager put the police on the phone, it seems he passed peacefully in his sleep. He was a lion of a man, bigger than life in so many ways, my wife and I named our youngest son, Lliam in his honor. You will ...
