By the associated press James Rodney Richard feels his 19th Victory is Only a just Reward. I feel i de sirve to win the Houston Pitcher said after tossing a three hitter and beating the los Angeles dodgers 1-0 tuesday night raising his record to 19-15. I be worked hard. I be said the hurler who goes by his initials . When i say suffer i mean that i figured i should have come up to the big leagues earlier than i did. The Only difference Between my pitching now and when i first came up is that i be been they see him making a lot of Money for boxing judges Harold Lederman and Barney Smith each scored the fight 8-7 in rounds for Ali while referee Arthur Mercante had it 8-6-1. A majority of the random gave the nod to Norton. A loud Roar of Boos came from the pro Ali crowd when the ver dict was announced. Overrall it was a heavy weight fight of Little distinction. Here were two of the supposedly most powerful fighting men on at 221 and Norton at away at each other for 15 rounds and hardly making a Dent in each other s facade. After the skirmish in which there were no knockdowns and no visible blood Norton suffered a bump under his right Eye. Both men were red and bruised from the pounding but virtually unhurt. A started out with a Flat footed bore in style As he promised fell Back on his familiar dancing routine in the Middle rounds and held his own in some wild but futile hitting sprees at the finish. Norton slumped badly after dominating five of the first six rounds. Neither was a fighter in the Jack Der Nosey Joe Louis Rocky Marciano tradition Norton unleashed the harder blows Ali. With his flicking left landed More often. But they were marshmallow shots that hardly ruffled an Eyebrow boxing expects More blood and Thunder from its heavy weights. I out fought him com Norton said after Ward not attempting to re Strain the tears of Dis appointment. I thought i whipped him decisively in our first fight and won these cond fight although the Deci Sion went to Ali. I think i won this fight by a bigger margin than either of the the 31-year-old Norton a rugged picture athlete who Lowers 6 feet 3 inches broke All s jaw and won a decision March 31. 1973 in san Diego but six months later lost by a slim margin because of a last round Ali rally. Both fights were no title Over 12 rounds. I think i deserve another shot at Ali before he takes on Norton said. If he keeps fighting he can t deny me another shot. The Public would t allow Norton complained that it is impossible to beat the pop ular Champion by decision the crowd is so biased in Given the Opportunity to Richard said. Elsewhere in the no Cincinnati edged san Diego 5-4, san Francisco downed Atlanta 4-1, St. Louis stopped Philadelphia 5-3, and new York split two with Montreal winning the opener 5-4 and dropping the Nightcap 4-2. Two of the dodgers hits were by Steve Garvey who now needs Only two More to reach the 200-Lut plateau for the third straight year. The sooner i get them the Garvey said. It s Tough getting to the plate four times a Houston scored the game s from Page 1c his Tavor that you Are behind him from the Norton said. When you fight Ali you be got to Knock him this sentiment found no argument Over in All s dress ing room. That s Ali said applying the analysis to champions in general and not to himself personally. To win a Man s title you got to take it away from him. You got to beat him decisively. Nobody will accept any of that Jimmy Young stuff fat and out of shape. Ali scored a 15-round decision Over Jimmy Young in Lan Dover my last Spring in a fight that a vast majority of watchers thought he lost. The judges elected to let Ali keep his title. The fight the first heavy weight title bout in Yankee stadium in 17 years was a financial if not artistic Success. It Drew an announced crowd of paying up to s200 for seats.

Some maj feel As did Many observers at ringside that More action and More violence could have been found outside the stadium where hundreds of teen agers became unruly and 000 off duty policemen demonstrated in support of a salary drive. When the fight ended hundreds tried to storm the ring and to be restrained by policemen with nightsticks.

After starting aggressively Ali fell Back into his float like a Butterfly sting like a Bee routine and fought a defensive Battle. There were full rounds in which he kept on the Retreat throughout covering his head and body with gloves and arms. Norton became so frustrated that in the Lith round the challenger Hung on the ropes and mimicked All s renowned rope a dope strategy. Ali Ali screamed the crowd. Midway of the fight Ali raised the Lump under nor ton s right Eye and in the 12th, As the round ended Norton rubbed the ailing optic and it appeared the Eye might close but it did t.
