Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Mqrth 6, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD ~ %% NOfUNEPOirTALKINf^ All there is remaining is waiting, wondering NEW YORK (AP) - Joe Fra-der and Mttiamimed All know what they plan to do during and after the fight. All that remains is ths waiting and wondering. Frazier, who has predicted AH won't be able to stand the pressure of his attack, said Friday he will wm his scheduled 15-round title defence Monday night in Madison Square Garden tn from one to 10 rounds. "I don't want it to go beyond the first round if I can help it," the 6-to-5 favorite said, Mid added: "I'U be at the party." This was in reference to a victory party for Frazier, which is set for a New York hotel and which has been advertised in a New York newspaper. The advertisement has hrked Ali who said after a workout in Miami Beach, Fla., Friday: "That's one party Ffazler's Drimiheller ties series DRUMHELLER, Alta. (CP) - Dnraiheller Miners scored power - play goals Friday night in defeating Edmonton Mon-archs 4-1 to tie their best-ot-seven Alberta Hockey League semi - fmal series' 1-1. The Monarchs, second-place finishers in the three - team league, took a 1 - 0 lead in the first period when Gene Achty-michuk scored at 1:57, but that was the last shot that got by Drumheller goaltender Russ Gillow. Dale Bloomqulst tied the score at 15:57 of the period while Edmonton was a man short In the second period, the only one in which there was sustained action, the Miners scored twice as Tim Gould and Jim Kryway, the latter on a power play, moved them into a 3 - 1 lead. Bob Bartlet rounded out the scoring with a last - period marker while Dale Conrad was in the penalty box. IT'S HERE NOW THE NEW 1971 YAMAHA 175 Super-scrambling is hero with Yamaha's 175/CT1-C model.

It might be more Mke a funeral." All's post-Qght plans call for a gathering "... at some hotel, my buddies from all over the world and me." "Ain't gonna be no party, though. It'll just be a meetin' with my fans." Just how soon after the fight Qiuvalo comments on fight TORONTO (CP) - Muhammad Ali will bo strong in the early rounds, but Joe Frazier will take chairge later on and win Monday's fdght for the world heavyweight boxing championship in 10 rounds, says a man who has taken punches from both. The prediction came Friday from Canadian heavywaght champion George Ohuvalo of Toronto, who has lost to both fighters. "The first three to five rounds should be tough for Frazier," Cbuvalo said. "Ali will dance and stick and step away, but the pressure will get to him after that. He'll need some weight to do a little power punching if he has to stand and trade punches with Joe. "Ali likes to dictate the pace. He'll come up with jabs, double and triple jabs. But if he misses that first jab, he'll get hit. "I don't think he's over the hiU. But ZV2 years is a long layoff. He hadn't reached his full potential. I think he needed a little more time to really be ui shape, maybe get a few more tuneup fi^ts." FRAZIER BETTER Frazier is "far superior" to Jerry Quarry or Oscar Bonav-ena, the two fighters beaten by Ali since his comeback. "He will cut the ring in half, aim at him and move forward con-stMitly. "Unless Ali catches him early, the other guy will get him. Frazier will chop him down." Frazier was the first heavy-wei^t to keep Chuvalo from going the distance, landing a left hook that produced a star fraicture under his right eye, threatening his ^ht and temporarily blmding him for a technical knockout. In a jH-evious fight, Chuvalo lasted 15 rounds easily against AU, even forcmg the fight in the final few rounds. Chuvalo thinks Frazier will win, but says he's rooting for Ali. "I'd like to fight the winner. But if it's Frazier, he won't have tlie magnetism. Ali has more drawing power. He's better box office. You get a better payday." Ali will be able to join Ms "buddies from all over the world" he won't say because he is saving his prediction for the closed-circuit television audience shortly before the fight set for 8:40 p.m. MST. However, an All aide wtaked when asked if All's sealed, hand-written prediction called for him to stop Frazier in the seventh. Ali, who has said he will win with speed and boxing ability, did say: "Frazier's got to cut. I'll tag him-pow, pow-and then dance away. Nobody can go without cutttn' after six or eight rounds." It was not known when the fighters would arrive in New York during the weekend. Frazier is to weigh in at 11:30 a.m. Monday at the Garden's Felt Forum. After he leaves, Ali will weigh in. Fra-zier is expected to weigh about 205, AU about 215. Frazier sparred five-rounds Friday and said he plans a light workout today. Ali did not spar, but he did put in a brisk session, and he did some fast talkffiig. "I'm able to damce 15-if I have to," he said. "My body hasn't been this good since the first time I whupped Sonny Listen." LAUGHS AT RUMOR Ali laughed at a rumor he had been shot. "That's the last thing that worries me," he said. "I worry more about flyin' to New York on tliat jet. The turbulence comes up ... It starts lightning . . wings are shakin' . . . that's what scares Muhammad AU." The fight stands to break several boxing financial records. Two definite records are the $2.5 million guarantees for each fighter, and the sellout indoor live gate of $1.25 milUon. According to the Ring record book, the highest previous purse for a fighter was the $1,434,000 Floyd Patterson received for his second fi^t with Sonny Liston. The indoor gate mark was $658,503 at the Garden March 4, 1968, for the doubleheader staging of the Frazier-Buster Mathis fight and the Nino Benvenuti-E m i 1 e Griffith midleweight title clash. Of course if a hoped-for $20 milUon to $30 million total gross is realized, the fight would be by far the richest single sports event in history. Cranbrook edges Jets CRANBROOK, B.C. (CP) - Outstanding goalfiending by Cranbrook Royals' Phil Hadley in the third period helped his team to a 4-3 win over Spokane Jets Friday night. It evened their best - of - seven semi-final series in the Western International Hockey League at a game apiece. JIM DAVIS SAND and GRAVEL COALHURST, ALBERTA New Telephone Number Is 327-6533 MerCs title goes down to wire Three-rink playoff a fitting ending By AL McNEIL QUEBEC (CJP) -- Any other ending but a threenrink, extra-end playoff would have been in-appropriate after the things that have happened to this year's Canadian curUng championship. �nius, instead of trying to find thedr way out of snowbound Quebec City today, rinks from Northern Ontario, Saskatchewan and Manitoba will continue their fight for the title. By any normal script, Bill Te-iley's Northeni Ontario rink should have been celebrating as new Canadlao champions today and.savoring a trip to Megeve, France, for a crack at the world title. The winner here will represent Canada at the world cora-petition in 10 days. Instead of a celebration, Te-tley was on the ice this morning at 7 a.m. attempthig to regain the form that sent him into the Friday night round boasting an 8-1 record. HAD ADVANTAGE He had entered the 11th round with a one-game jump on Don Duguid of Winnipeg and Bob Pickering of Avonlea, Slask. All he needed was to nudge past Kip Ready's Prtoce Edward Island foursome. But it was Ready who came prepared. He turned the tables on the Northern Ontario rink, winning the game 9A and setting the scene for the playoff. Duguid, defoiding Canadian and world champion, and Pickerinig, had already assured themselves of part of the playoff picture by gaining 8-2 records from their performances in night games. Di^d had beaten British Columbia's Kevin Smale 10-5 while Pickering had his problems getting beyond a stubborn Newfoundland rink skipped by Bob Cole. The three skips then drew lots to see who wxnild get the bye in this morning's round, with Duguid emerging the lucky one. He'll play the winner of the Fickering-Tetley contest at 1 p.m. It was the first time since 1962 that a three-way {dayoff had been required to decide the championship. That year Gmie Richardson o t Sadcatchewan woo it. In addition to the three key games played Friday night, there were two others which had no meaning other than to alter the final standings. Nova ScoH&'s Frank Hoar defeated the New Brunswick foursome of Paul Bordage 11:9, while Edmonton's Mat Baldwta guided his Alberta rink to a M win over Quebec's BUI Ott. Bob C!harlebois' Ontario rink had the final bye. Below the three playoff rinks, the final standings allowed B.C..
