WAN'NA SEE A SURE WINNER FOR 1971 the Public Showing of Scamper Ctiiitjiers and Motor Homes. COMING SOON DEC. 12 and 13 PrebCo RECREATION VEHICLES NEW YORK (CP) Moham- mad AU proved several things when he scored a 15th-round technical knockout over Oscar Bonavena in Madison Square Garden Monday night. He proved he could come back after being in dire straits; he proved he had the stamina, after his absence from the ring, to go the distance, and he proved to the dismay of his partisan supporters that his face could be marked. But did he prove he is ready for Joe Frazier, the recognized world heavyweight champion? Bonavena said he will bet all his money on Ali and Frazier had better watch out; Ali said he can't wait, and Frazier said: "I'll be ready for him so he had tetter put on his dancing shoes." So, if all goes well, the scene is set for the most lucrative boxing extravaganza in history ?10 million-plus promotion. The Garden, and a few other promoters, have their fingers crossed that they may be the successful bidder. "Three weeks rest, three weeks training, six weeks and I'll be ready for Frazier." That, unofficially, was Ali's timetable for his long-awaited fight against Frazier for the world heavyweight title. Ali was slightly marked under the right eye after the fight, the first time he had been marked during his career. He now is 31- 0. Bonavena, who suffered his first knockout in his career, is 47-7-1. AU weighed 212 and Bon- avena 204. "I did have trouble in the late Ali said. "I was tired, but it was my skill, timing and stamina that pulled me through. "I needed the work. It was the type of fight to see it I could go the distance, to see if I could take a punch and give one." He chided reporters, many of whom had wondered in print if Ali still had the punch to handle Frazier. At Monticello, N.Y., Frazier said Ali was "right on target" with the left hook that started him on the way to his knockout over Bonavena in the 15th round. Frazier watched the fight in New York's Madison Square Garden on a closed-circuit tele- vision screen at Monticello Raceway. "That was a good round for Frazier said. "But until the 15th I had given Oscar every round. I thought Clay fought dirty, pushing Oscar around and everything like that." ROUND TAKEN AWAY The fight started out as a brawl with Bonavena landing a left hook below the belt and Ali throwing Bonavena to the canvas. Bonavena re- peated his first infraction and referee Mark Conn ordered the round taken away from him. Clay connected with a couple of one-two combinations in the second round, but Bonavena kept bulling his way in and was connecting with Mild left hooks near the end of the round. Tire third round had the Mar- quis of Quecnsberry turning in his grave1. Ali heaved Bonavena through the ropes twice and taunted him throughout the round. But the Argentine kept up his bull-like charges and was doing his own little dirty-work in the clinches. But Ali was piling up the points despite the infractions on both sides. Then, starting in the fourth, the Argentine started finding the range. Bonavena nailed Ali with a wild left hook and after a little rough-housing on the side, had Ali hanging on at the bell. The trend continued until the round that Ali -had predicted he would knock out then the packed house in the Garden was treated to the wildest three minutes ol boxing seen in many a day. Tlie crowd was on its feet when the round started, expect- ing Ali to come through as he had so many times before. HAD ALI IN TROUBLE Ali staggered Bonavena with ,a savage left hook and it looked as though the Argentine was on his way down. But when Ali ap- peared to move in for the fin- isher, he was nailed with a Bon- avena right hand that had him in trouble. The two battlers exchanged blows for a two-minute period with both being staggered sev- eral times and the packed house going wild. The final punch of the round was a solid left hook by Bonavena that caught AU coming in. Ah' managed to stay away from Bonavena for the next four rounds, outboxing him along the way. And then came the unex- pected finish. Bonavena came charging out for the final round. Then out of nowhere, Ah' exploded a left hook on the Argentine's jaw and he dropped like a fallen tree. He took the mandatory eight count arid a left-right Ah' combination laid him flat on his back again. Buchanan fast, Paduano falls NEW YORK (CP) Donato Paduano, Canadian welter- weight champion from Mont- real, was given some of his own medicine Monday night and went down to his first defeat in 23 fights, losing a unanimous 10-round decision to lightweight champion Ken Buchanan ot Scotland in a non-title fight at Madison Square Garden. "I've never met anyone as fast as Paduano said after the fight. Some of Paduano's 22 victims said the same thing after meet- ing the 21-year-old Italian-Cana- dian. Paduano won his first 22 fights as a professional with his lightning hands and constant at- tack on his way to the Canadian championship and a No. 3 posi- tion in the world welterweight rankings.

Referee Zack Clayton scored the fight eight rounds for Bu- chanan, one round for Paduano and one even. Judge Joe Kppy had it 6-3-1 and judge Jack Gor- don scored it 8-2. The Canadian Press had it 7-3 for Buchanan. A dejected Paduano, inter- viewed after the fight, made no claim to victory but said the margin was not as large as the judges scored it. Paduano, 146, outweighed the 25-year-old Scottish carpenter by 10 pounds. Paduano now has a 22-1 won- lost record while Buchanan, who won the lightweight title in an upset spEt decision over Is- mael Laguna in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Sept. 26, has a 38-1 record.
