OPPONENTS IN SYDNEY LES SLOAN AND TOMMY BURNS liec. 10.30 a.m. SYDNEY, this day. The New Zealander Vic Caltaux has been matched with Les Sloan, challenger for the Australian welter-weight and middle-weight boxing titles. The pair will meet in the Sydney Stadium on September 1: Caltaux's Australian manager, Mr. F. Atkins, expects Caltaux to arrive in Sydney on August 10. Caltaux will meet Tommy Burns, the Queensland champion, late in September, and the match against Sloan should be a good warm-up for him. The Australian welter-weight boxer Dal Conway has received an ofl'er of £700, with an option of 30 per cent of the "gates" for three fights in New Zealand, says the Daily Telegraph's boxing writer. The offer was made by Mr. Pat Gleeson on behalf of the New Zealand promoters. Mr. Gleeson has been appointed the representative in Australia of the Wellington Boxing Association. He was one of Australia's leading boxers 25 years ago. One of his jobs is to recommend suitable boxers to New Zealand promoters and to arrange their contracts. New Zealand is particularly interested in Australian middle-weights and welter-weights. The offer to Conway is being seriously considered by his manager, Mr. J. Minahan.
