The champion came to terms with Rickard tonight after two days of arguing. ' Rickard said . that either Georges Carpentier, the French heavyweight, or Jack Dempsey, who has been clamoring for a match with the champion, will be WUlard's opponent. Rickard reserved the right, however to wait until March 25 before making the selection. The place for holding the battle will be named 60 days before the contest. The contest will be the first that Willard has fought since he, met Frank Mcran of ' Pittsburg in New York in March, 1916. Rickard was the promoter of that match.

Willard, looking brown and strong, left his oil business in Texas to come to Chicago at Rickard's request. The champion said that he weighed close to 275 pounds, but that he probably would enter the ring weighing about 245 pounds. "I presume some people will think that I demanded the earth to , box," Willard said. "Rickard met my terms and I accepted. I want to say that I didn't get a cent for fighting Johnson in Havana. In fact I had to borrow money to get back. The man who meets me, if he wins, will have the same opportunity that I did to make money. I am making money in the oil business and did not care whether I ever fought again. ' "It doesn't matter who is selected to meet me. The purse is the thing. I am not boxing for fun. It's business with me." Willard and Rickard will leave for Texas tomorrow night.
