As Dixon and Solly Smith have signed to fight, it is ap parent that Jordan will have to look else where for a combat. Tom O'Rourke says that by tiie time Jordan reaches this country, the meeting between Smith ar.d Dixon, if one is held, will likely be a matter of history, and if Dixon wins, Jordan will be accomodated in a jiffy. It has also been suggested that Dave Sulli van would be a fit adversary to try out the foreigner's prowess. Many sports think this would be a great drawing card Jordan is to sail from England today. ris CYCLING!. An American team will not be sent to compete in the world's cycling cham pionships fit Vienna.
