Wrestling. FRANK MEARS TO WRESTLE FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE WORLD. A match was bound on Saturday last between Frank Mears, the well-known local wrestling champion, and Tom kins, of Ton Pentre, to wrestle for the 9-stone 7-lbs championship of the world for a side-stake from .£10 to any amount and the best purse offered. A sum of X5 has been already deposited with Mr J. W. Hek, of the Crown Hotel, to bind the match, which will shortly take place in the Rhondda—in all probability at Tonvpandy. The manager for Tom Jen- kins is Mr W. E. Williams, of Ton Pen- tre, whilst Mr W. Woods, of Southport, and late of London will act as manager for Frank Mears. who is now in strict training for the match. The articles will be signed in the course of a week. j Mears' decisive victory over Bevan, of Ystrad, a fnll report of which appeared in the "Leader," resulted in the local man being prominently brought into the limelight in South Wales Wrestling circles. The present arrange- 'nent between Meal's and Jenkins nas been the subject of much discussion. Mears, the loaal man, is. without doubt, Rroatly fancied in the Aberdare Valley. and on his present form it will take a >'eallv good man to beat him. Should he succeed in bringing the laurels to Aber- dare, it will mean distinction to the town. We have already had our champions in cycling, boxing, and in football, then let us, by all means, have Our wrestling champion also.
