Believe this photo is from the Aug 18 1960 bout where Whipper Watson & Ilio DiPaolo
won the Canadian Open Tag Titles back from the Gallaghers.
Its ref Lou Pistocia on the ramp and special ref Mike Valentino's arm just visible on the far left.

Doc (in the ropes) and brother Mike (battering ram) were regulars around the area from 1955 to 1964
and were big stars both in Ontario and across in Buffalo.

There were quite a few brother teams in that era for the Gallaghers to feud with and the
Brunetti brothers (Guy & Joe) were frequent opponents here in Toronto.
