NEW YORKERS TO RECOGNIZE THEIR OWN RING CHAMP Johnston Puts Thru Deal to Match Sharkey, Camera in Title Bout. ' NEW YORK, April's. W--Unless something happens to upset the dope, It appears that there will be two fights for two heavyweight championships of. th a world this summer. Max' Sehmeling Is slated to defend hts title against young .Willie Striblirig In Cleveland, probably -in July, and' now It develops that lumbering Prime- Camera "of Italy, and ' Jack Sharkey have: been 1 matched for a .bout at Ebbets field, Brooklyn, on June 10 and the ^einfier probably will be recognized by the New York state athletic .commission as champion. Johnston Opens Fight. Reports current for , aome' time that Jimmy Johnston, who shifted his role from managed to prompter, had opened his battle against, the Madison Square Garden' corporation by signing up a rival heavyweight attraction, were crystallized Tuesday with the definite news of the date for the IB-round scrap. Several-. kinks , in' the program stUl must- be straightened out but unofficial word from the boxtog sol- ons. indicated that the commission would lend a hand at this business. s Officially, the commission announced that Camera, suspended 'after his famous "fuhgo hitting" tour, will be" reinstated ''sooner or later." '-... :. ,': Await Reinstatement. . ' . - . · Unofficially if was.- made : known that 'tbV-reinstatement would: be .in- time'.'for'a meeting' with Sharkey and that the'contract the ambling Alp has with the Garden for a rheet- ;ing with the winner of the Schmel- ing-Strlbllng bout, would be^overlooked by the. commission. - · \There stll remains . the '.chance that the Garden will attempt' to hold Camera to'his'agreement to meet Sehmeling :or Stribllng.' .The giant'Italian posted a 525,000 binder which stood until the New York rnilk fund withdrew from the .west- .ern show. The -New 'York commission is^ not likely to recognize this Claim, however, as Sehmeling Is .under suspension here.
