Rost Working Hard Rosi'now boasts a sparring ner at hts msn wha can make him speed up atid develop his punch for his com- ing match -with "Spider" Wolfe of Chicago. what the fans want to know. Wolfe Ic a great boxer though probably a shade less of a battler than Harrison, so he and Rocs should match up well and show plenty of action. There it a possibility that the Ross-Wolfe bout will have to be postponed a dsy or two owing to the theatre being booked for a road-show.
