“I became worlds champion BECAUSE my staunch friend and teacher “the old Farmer” MADE ME CHAMPION.” - Frank Gotch
Martin “Farmer” Burns - The World’s Most Scientific Wrestler. Weighing less than 170 pounds, he wrestled more than 6000 professional matches and won all but seven of them - an almost unbelievable feat. Hundreds of his victories were over the best known foreign champions that outweighed him from 50 to 100 pounds.
