Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Is Quarry finally done with boxing or will he attempt another comeback? NEW YORK (AP) Joe Frazier blasted his way back into the heavyweight title picture Monday night and cast a giant shadow over Jerry Quarry's dream of ever wearing the crown. "I wanted the public to see that I'm going back to being the old Smokin' Frazier said moments after stopping Quarry at of the fifth round of their scheduled 12- round bout at Madison Square Garden. "All the things they said I couldn't do, I did Frazier said. He also proved the new Quarry is no more dangerous than the old one who was beaten in seven rounds by Frazier five years ago. A cut above the left eye, opened by Frazier early in the fifth round, led referee Joe Louis to stop the fight. NOTHING WORKED "Everything I worked so hard for just didn't said Quarry, who needed 15 stitches to close the cut above his left eye and three stitches to bind a smaller wound above his right eye. Did Foster lose Gray sharp to Ahumada? ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) Left-hooking Jorge Ahumada of Argentina is convinced he should be the light heavyweight champion today. "I am the champ and I'll come back to Albuquerque again to prove said Ahu- mada, who came out with a draw in 15 rounds against hometown hero Bob Foster Monday night. Foster retained the title, his 14th successful defence and the first draw in his professional career dating back to 1961. Referee Jimmy Cleary scored the fight 145-142 for the challenger despite taking one point away from Ahumada for a low blow in the 10th round. Judge Tim Keleher saw it for Foster 148-143 while judge Stan Gallup scored it 144-144. The Associated Press had Foster ahead 145-144. Ahumada, 173V2 and 5-foot- 10. lacked 5Vz inches in height and five inches in reach against his 35-year-old foe, who weighed in at 174. So Ahumada followed a strategy of bulling in and swinging left hooks that often found their mark to the head or body. Foster's best was his jab. Controversy came in the 10th round when Ahumada hit Foster with a low left. It doubled the champ and referee Cleary gave him a minute to recover. The fight drew a crowd of to the University of New Mexico Arena. It came as the second part of a nationally televised closed- circuit show that started with Joe Frazier's fifth round knockout of Jerry Quarry in New York. While Ahumada clamored for a rematch, Foster said he'd be glad to give him one but the setting of fights is up to manager Lou Viscusi. Ahumada's nose began bleeding in the second round and was flowing late in the fight. TORONTO (CP) Commonwealth champion Clyde Gray dashed Gill King's championship hopes Monday night, scoring a technical knockout over the Akron, Ohio, fighter in the fourth round of their welterweight boxing match. The bout at Maple Leaf Gardens served as a preliminary to the closed circuit telecast of the main events, featuring champion Bob Foster and George Ahumada in a world light heavyweight fight from Albuquerque, N.M., and a 12 round heavyweight clash from New York between former champion Joe Frazier and Jerry Quarry. Gray, who also holds the Canadian welterweight title, dominated the match with King, throwing six and seven punches to every one thrown by his opponent. F 'EARt> ALL ABOUT THE LATEST AbOlTlON!
