Porky Lopez

Porky Lopez, not to be confused with Eddie Lopez who was a different person (and these two never met in a match) worked as a job guy in Arizona in 1968.

Billed from Durango, Mexico, which may or may not have been true, he lost to several people on the circuit, both on television and in house shows.

Some of those who beat the rotund grappler included Don Arnold, Pancho Pico, Chuck Karbo, John Shane, Woody Farmer, Ray Gordon and  Kiko Torres.

Lopez evidently left Arizona by 1969 and headed back to Mexico. He cropped up in Nogales, Hermosillo, Agua Prietà, Ciudad Obregon and  a few other places before fading away.
