Eddie Ban try of this city and Tommy Sul livan, the crack Brooklyn feather-weight. are scneauiea to box, before th Connemars Cuckoo club at Apollo ball tonight. The fight is a crucial test for 'the local man. - If defeated.- he - must drop back hope lessly into the rear and give up all thought ot ever regaining hi former place among the leader of the. feather-weiaht division. If be wins, h will be in Jin for lucrative en gagements with the top-notchers. . Sine Sentry's return to the ring.' a few month ago, he ha given evidence of having in some degree regained the form which ren dered him a likely aspirant for championship hoaor ia the past. Two lightning knock out a. with . Dick JfiUpatrick. and Kid Jou- lette as the victim, .and a six-round draw with bis old rival. Jack McCleUan of Pitts burg, brightened up Eddie' record consid erably. He suffered a temporary setback by losing a point decision to Ole Oleson. but the verdict was on of the hair-line order, and aid not damage Sentry' newly won reputation much. Th Chicagoan ia in good condition for the bout, nd it ia well that he la, for Sullivan Is about as tough a problem as he could have undertaken to solve. Although Santry's horn is in this city, it is likely that Sullivan will he made a slight betting favorite at the ring aide. Th Brookrynite la a marvel of speed ana hts body attack at close quarter I thing to be remembered. He uses both bands with equal facility aad roughs matters in th clinches much after the ctyl of on Terry McOovern, whom Sullivan, by the way, one hew to a ten-round draw. To Santry belongs th long left Jab. per fect defense, and good generalship that marks a veteran sclentlno artist. -His knockout punch lies In bis right glove, thrown' across the guard to the Jaw.. Many a good man has gone down for the count before this blow of Santry's. - At the close mixing game Sullivan will probably show to best advantage!. Santry's best chanc of victory 1 to stay sway and work at long rang, but the Eastern lad Is so strong aad fast that h may compel the local boxer to rough matter against hi will.
