The Ex- Champion.
John L. Sullivi.n, who for 12 long
years held the tit le of champion pu
gilist of the world, was in the city
recently, says tie Galesburg Mail,
and was the ad m red of hundreds of
people around tha Union hotel today.
Since his last aj pearance here, and
since he met defeat at the hands of
James J. Corbett. Sullivan has had
his big. heavy m istache shaved off.
and he now resembles a voung school
bov. The Mail reporter has known
John since chil Ihood. but he was
completely fooled when he met the
ex-champion this morning and asked
what he thought of the I orbctt
MitcheU tight. He answered that
he had not thought much
about the tight, but that it was
his opinion that I orbett would w in.
Mitchell is a grea; deal the hardest
hiiter. but Corbet t is quicker and
gets out of the way of the hard jabs.
Sullivan said he thought, however,
that both the men were doing too
much talking for their own good.
John also said tint he had not de
cided yet whether he would do any
more fighting or lot. He was con
fident though tha: he could go into
the ring and make as good a showing
as ever. He says that his new play.
