The champion arrived here for a charity dinner still fresh and full of bounce despite a 12-hour, 600-mile drive in a new car he picked up in De- troit. He was one of a dozen prominent athletes making a head-table appearance at the affair held an- nually to aid the Tiny Tim Fund of Hie Montreal Chil- dren's Hospital. Frazier literally bounced in to the pro-dinner news confer- ence, dressed in a black dou- ble-breasted suit and a white turtleneck sweater. He was immediately tile centre of at- tention. The champion was more in- clined to talk about his de- fence against Daniels, a lit- tle-known fighter from Dallas, than a re-match with Muham- mad Ali, nee Cassius Clay.
