Heenan again after the "Champion of England."

--The Benicia Boy has authorized the editor of the Clipper to state that he would fight Hurst, the Staleybridge Infant, for from $1,000 to $10,000; and that he would give the latter $1,000 to fight in this country. Hurst was anxious to punch the Benicia Boy directly after his interview with Sayers. As champion of the English ring he is obliged to fight all comers, but not compelled to leave England. There is a rumor among Heenan's friends that if Hurst will not come here, Heenan will go there, and again contest for the championship.
