Martin “Farmer” Burns (1861 – 1937) was a world champion “catch-as-catch-can” wrestler as well as wrestling coach and teacher. Born in Cedar County, Iowa he started wrestling as a teenager and made money traveling around the Midwest wrestling in carnivals and fairs. As a professional he claimed the American Heavyweight Championship by defeating Evan “Strangler” Lewis in 1895 and held the title for three years. Burns himself claimed to have wrestled in more than 6,000 matches and is said to have lost only seven. In 2001 Burns was inducted into the International Wrestling Institute and Museum Hall of Fame.
