? , . CANNON AND CONNOB. I The draco-Roman Championship. I Tho final deposit of £100 a-side was made good yesterday, in the Cannon v. Connor Grmco-Roman wrestling match for £400 and the championship of the world. The match is to take plpco at the Alexandra Theatre on Saturday noxt, tho best of three falls. Both men are in good condition. Connor haa been putting . on finishing touches at Grigg s Hotel, South .-Brighton, near Mordialloc, and when I saw him at the Alexandra on Saturday night he lookod well and lusty. He does not hold his opponent cheap, and has got himself as fit as possible. Cannon is also very well, and is tho favourite. He haa been doing vigorous work with Andre Christol, and though bulky in appearance is still sound in wind and limb. Thus the men are apparently bo evenly matched that a keen and exciting struggle is looked forward to. This will be the best match yet wrestled in Australia, so say some of the sports.
