Defeated The "Ugandan Giant" Kamala in a "King Of The Jungle Death Match" at MWF Road to win the revived title
The last officially recognized AWA Brass Knuckles Champion was The Crusher, and it was a trophy, not a championship belt. In 1981, Ox Baker and The Crusher got into a brawl at Crusher's bar in Milwaukee, WI and Baker wound up taking the trophy after leaving Crusher knocked unconcious. Baker melted the trophy into a championship belt to lure Martino into the match.
