Wrestling Champ Dead at 83

Dara Singh visited Mauritius once -- think it was in the 70s -- and I even got the chance to go watch him fight against one Scotsman Cameron (Jack if I remember correctly) who meticulously folded his skirt before launching the hostilities. But it was not the fight everybody talked about. Nope. THE fight to attend was between Dara Singh and Mighty Mongol. Them visiting our island got Mauritians to start practising impromptu wrestling.
