Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, March 1971 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Frazier meets Clay tonight i-awaited showdown set NEW YORK (CP) Shortly after p.m. tonight, Mu hamraad All and Joe Frazier will touch gloves at mid-ring at Madison Square Garden here and square off for their long-an- ticipated showdown. The battle between Frazier, the recognized heavyweight boxing champion of the world, and Ali, the defrocked cham- pion, has generated more ex- citement than any fight since the second Joe Louis-Max Schmeling bout in 1938. Some 300 million people around the world are expected to witness the fight on closed- circuit television or on their home sets.

With closed-circuit televi- sion and satellite transmission to 35 countries, the gross take could above 520 million, a figure unheaid o! heretofore. Adding to the lustre is the fact that never before in the his- Managers since the start NEW YORK (AP) Both An- Dundee and Yancey (Yank) Durham, the handlers of Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier respectively, have been with their fighters since their ama- teur days and have guided them to the pinnacle of boxing suc- heavyweight champi onship of the world. In Dundee's case it is literally true. The veteran boxing man has been All's trainer and advisor since 1957, when the fighter was still known as Cassius Clay and ANDY CAPP three years before he won the Olympic light heavyweight crown. It would even be true to say that Dundee pushed Clay to the world heavyweight title. Clay, then 22, was the chal- lenger in his first fight with champion Sonny Liston in 1964 at Miami Beach. Returning to his corner after the fifth round, lie couldn't see, bunded tempo- rarily by a solution put on a cut on Liston's cheek. "Cut my gloves Clay ins- isted. PUSHED ALI IN Instead, Dundee shoved his fighter toward the centre of the ring with instructions to "run, run" away from Liston until his vision cleared. One round later Liston quit in his corner and Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. was the holder of boxing's most pre- cious prize. Dundee has been controlling Ali's boxing destiny ever since although he could do nothing in 1967 when the World Boxing As- sociation decided to strip the champion of his title because o serve in the eated champions met for the rat's most honored prize. It is the classic battle of the loxer, Ali, versus the slugger, razier. But it is more than hat. It is an attempt by Ali to urn back the clock years ith Frazier trying to prove Jiat it cannot be done. "He's a loud-mouth, he's a tit he appeals to fools-I will ea't him inside of 10 s Frazier. 'He's just a homemade an amateur, ugly and will be no con- est, I will boasts Frazier, 27, is rated a slight avorite to retain his champion- lip, but odds that opened at 7 5 for the champion have been ropping. The most realistic appraisal pparently is offered by Jimmy The Greek) Snyder, the unoffi- ial Wizard of Odds, who calls it an even "Pick 'em" fight. The careers of both fighters are strikingly parallel in many respects. They first attracted attention by winning Olympic ti- the light crown in the 1960 Olympics in lomfi, and Frazier the heavy- veight title four years later to Tokyo. Both started their professional careers with the backing of a syndicate of wealthy busmess- men. Frazier's Philadelphia- >ased Cloverlay group is still with him but Ali's Louisville, {y., group has long since de- >arted and he now is managed jv Herbert Muhammad, son of Black Muslim leader Elihaj Mu- s lammad. Lethbridge clubs advance on trail Only one Lethbridge team failed to advance further along the playofff trail following ac- tion Sunday. Lethbridge ABdget Elks, Ban- tam A.C.T.

The Canucks trailed 2-1 after the first period but evened the match after the second before the Bisons came up with two unanswered goals in the third. Chuck Moore and Ross Math- eson each rammed in two mark- ers for the Bisons while Bruce Quick chipped in with one.
