CYCLONE THOMPSON TO FIGHT SULLIVAN
"Cyclone" Johnny Thompson, the coming lightweight champion arrived from Sycamore, Illinois, yesterday afternoon accompanied by Mrs. Thompson, who will remain with hor husband until after his match with Pete Sullivan in Pocatello, July 4. As Sullivan has been clamoring for one more contest with Thompson the latter consented to box him at Pocatello, the fans of the city assuring a good crowd and purse. Thompson will leave for Pocatello today to begin training immediately for his match and to give the Idahoans an opportunity to see him work out. Training quarters will probably be established at a ranch close to Pocatello by Thompson. Mrs Thompson will remain with her husband at the training camp. [The Ogden standard.
