Giants of the Ring, in spanish," Titanes en el Ring" was a catch television show that aired for more than three decades in the Argentinean television, with just some brief interruptions. Together with the weekly show, Mart?n
Karadagi?n's troupe made live presentations during the week in many cities and towns of Argentina. Also, it's fame took them to the big screen, showing two films as well as some of the most important and famous fighters participated in other movies also.
Just to understand the importance of Titanes en el Ring to all young Argentineans, they were sort of a World Championship Wrestling, though the characters who fought in Titanes were much more elaborated. This show had it's fighters dressed up in costumes specially designed for them, which covered them from head to toes. Each character not only had a story and a history, but also a distinctive song. This was very appealing to all the kids who went to see the show. But there also where some American trademarks in the show, such as the clear division between good and evil, two clear sides confronting where there were no gray areas. Each side's characters represented world's regions and countries, showing traditional outfits and specially highlighting their culture.

Nowadays, Paulina Karadagi?n (Mart?n Karafagi?n's daughter) keeps Titanes going, she's the troup's manager. Though Titanes en el Ring is no loneger aired by national television, it is so very common to see in cable TV, and the memory of the glorious show `s still intact. Titantes do live presentations all around the country. And though the fighters changed and were re-newed, the characters remain.

Also, for this re-appearance of Titanes en el Ring, many famous Argentinean musicians worked together recuperating those traditional all times songs, and recorded an album. The "Los titanes te atakan" CD has 20 great songs that have all time classic Karadagi?n's presentation as well as La Momia Negra, El Caballero Rojo, Rub?n "El Ancho" Peucelle, Tufic Memet, La Momia Blanca, Pepino el Payaso, Hippie Jimmy among others. The artists that recorded the album are the well known and cherished Superuva, Mate Cosido, D.I.O.N.I.S.I.O.S, Bigfoot, Childhood and many more.

This is not just an album, but a time machine as well as a collector's item, for what it represented to prior generations, for it's historical and cultural value and for it's an excellent album.

Information from The Buenos Aires Toy Musuem.

"Titanes en el Ring", a legend in catch fighting.......... Giants of the Ring.

For more than three decades, Titanes en el Ring was one of the most successful shows on national television in Argentina. Such was the success that Titanes appeared not only in theatre and the movies, but it made live catch presentations at many local clubs.
The spectacle consisted in many weekly wrestling fights where dozens of wicked characters in disguise confront each other seeking glory and most of all, these fights represented the struggle between good and evil -both sides represented by many skilled fighters-.
Mart?n Karadaggi?n, a-k-a the Armenian Champion - was the troupe's mentor and leader. He was the most beloved character of all, always showing his abilities and his traditional short punch " feared by his opponents since it was the most lethal punch of all". La Momia Blanca (the white mummy ) and El Caballero Rojo (The Red Knight) fighters were also very famous and loved.
The story begins on March 3rd, 1962, when Mart?n Karadaggi?n and El Capit?n Piluso (Alberto Olmedo's -who was one of Argentina's best comics- most famous character) meet for the first time in the ring. The fight's success was such -the only fight Mart?n Karadaggi?n ever lost- that the show was set for weekly spectacles. Most of the fights were men to men, though during the years sometimes there were "Australian styled fights", which meant two on two confrontations, and there where the unforgettable all against all fights where everyone entered the ring and even the referee intervened in the fights taking sides. Among the referees to remember, there was the most evil referee in history, William Boo; always taking the villain's side.
To the above cited characters we shall add glorious catch fighters who conquered the audience's heart such as Rub?n "El Ancho" (the hook) Peuchele, who latter held his own show "Lucha Fuerte"; Benito Durante, Pepino el Payaso (the clown), el Mercenario Joe (Mercenary Joe) and La Momia Negra (The Black mummy).
For seven consecutive seasons the show was transmitted by channel 9, but between 1969-1972 there was a brief impasse. By 1972 the show returned with all it's splendor and glory for what were its golden years, with all the traditional fighters and some new such as Tufic Memet, el hombre de la barra de hielo (the ice block man), el gran Otto (the great Otto) and el gigante Yeti (the Yeti giant).
The 80s began with some innovated characters such as Mr. Moto and El Pibe 10 (the Golden kid) which were supposed to lift up the show, though the circle began to descend. By 1984, Mart?n Karadagi?n's illness worsens, he even got his leg amputated, therefore he takes distance form the show. The show went on, without its mentor, until 1988 when they left the TV sets once and for all. Mart?n Karadagi?n died in 1991 because of a heart problem.
Nowadays Karadagi?n's daughter, Paulina, presents the show in clubs and rings all arround the country bringing new generations the joy of the show her father invented.

Titanes en el Ring success was translated into many merchandizing objects such as T-shirts, Compact discs, action figures, masks, trading cards, stickers, and many more accessories, once treasured by fans, and now by collectors.
