Manager White emphasized also that Apostoli thought he was gaining a title shot with light heavy king Billy Conn, when h= licked Beltina, but now It seems unlikely that Apostoli ever will get n title shot at Conn, because Billv is moving Into the heavyweight' division. Conn makes his official •heavyweight debut tomorrow night against, Henry Cooper of Brooklyn in a 12-rounder nt Madison Square Garden. If Conn wins this lilt impressively, he will be matched next with Johnny Payrhnkof DCS Moirns ns another step in the campaign toward Joe Loufc.
