Thursday, March 19 1908 -- Herriman (who we learn weighs a rather skimpy 133 pounds) turns in a cartoon from the training camp of the giant Russian, Battling Johnson, who will fight Fireman Jim Flynn next week. Sounds like the bulky fella (who is actually from Denmark according to Boxrec
) is about as dumb as a stump and is beating the tar out of sparring partners despite constant admonishments to go easy. Of course the training camp gawkers are loving it.
