Friday Night Fights--Cowboy Sahib Style!!

Look, maybe you didn't see earlier this week when I posted the story of the greatest hero you've never heard of, Cowboy Sahib!!

See, he was a WWII bomber pilot from Wyoming who fancied himself a cowboy. He was stationed in India, and when the war ended...well, we'll let Joe tell you himself:

So, Joe's going to feature in this week's Friday Night Fights.

But we'd better introduce his enemy to you folks, since he's even more obscure.

You see, the Sultan hired a Russian mercenary to get his kingdom back...

...and the Sultan soon learned the same lesson that James Bond did in Goldeneye--never trust a Cossack!

Wow, he went full Bane on him!!

So anyway, time for the fight of the century!!

Or would he...??

Sadly, Cowboy Sahib went on a two-year hiatus after this story, and when he returned we never got a rematch with the Cossack. Boo!

Spacebooger had no idea post-war India was so damned exciting!!

Cowboy versus Cossack is from The Hooded Horseman #27 (1953), as told by Richard Hughes and Leonard Starr

Now is the time for you to go and vote for my fight. Why?!? If enough people vote for me, maybe someone will revive Cowboy Sahib!!! So go and vote!!!!!!!

You only beat me because of greater numbers and superior strategy!

I guess that's one way to put it.
