Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 1, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta M.ondny, May I, 1973 THE IETHBWDGE HERALD Amateur card draws 450 Saturday By 1.1.0YI) YAMAG1S1II Herald Sports Writer Although professional boxing has overshadowed amateur boxing for at least a quarter of a century, the Lethbridgo Amateur Boxing Club showed 450 spectators Saturday night at the Henderson Lake Ice Cen- tre that amateur boxing is still exciting and as spectacular as ever. Tony Bogusky, who along with Oscar Odncy coaches and trains the Lethbridge Boxing Club feels that Saturday night's affair was the best box- ing card since J957. "The people were well-enter- tained as they watched evenly- matched bouts throughout the course of the said Bogusky. "One thing for sure Is that the fight card did a Jot for Lethbridge be added. Bogusky wasn't far from the truth, as boxing enthusiasts were entertained with 17 thrill- ing bouts, each lasting three rounds with a Ihree-minute span in each round. A double main event was the big feature of the evening and the spectators really got their money's worth. Carmen Rinke, the pride and Joy of the Lethbridge Boxing Club, showed why he is Ihe current Alberta champion and the Edmonton Golden Gloves champion. Riuke used a third round onslaught to earn a unanimous decision over Shane Hoyl of Ihe Cranbrook Eagles Boxing Club in the 145-pound class, Hoyl is the 1971 Spokane Golden Gloves champion and I li n 1971-72 B.C. Emerald Glnvrs riinrnT-np In the first round, the two fighters were caulious and felt each other out. They opened up a IHIIc. In the second round, exchanging blows, with each lighter get- ting his share of points. The third round told the story, however, as Rinke threw a flurry of punches to open Ibe round, and kept up the pace the rest of the way. Rinke caught Hoyt with a solid blow and decked him during the final three minutes forcing him to take the manda- tory eight count. Bogusky feels that Rinke. his protege, is definitely Olympic malcrial. Not since the days of Kai Yip, who completely dominated his class in Canada, has there been a boxer ivJio lias even come near to bis calibre. Yip, at that lime, swept four provincial titles, captured three dominion titles and also went to the British Empire Games while under the guidance of Bogusky. In the second main event, Dale Anderson of the Rocky Mountain House Boxing Club, rcceiv-d the verdjct over Den- nis Ch: rmoon from Lhe Blood Reserve Boxing Club in Card- Eton. Both of these boxers arc con- sidered la be among the better boxers in Canada today and they showed it by displaying three rounds of classical box- Ing. Other Lethbridge boxers who earned victories during the evening included Charlie Prongoa with a split decision over Scout of Ihe Blood Reserve in the 156-pound class; Norman Sinccnnes who took a unanimous decision in the 90- unanimous winner over Hoyt pound class over Andy Sfumpl o[ Brocket; Perry Odncy tak- ing a split decision over Hoy Harder of Rocky Mountain House in the 05-pound class; Brian Campbell gaining a split decision over Aldin McCrea of Rocky Mountain House in the 90 pound class. Other boxers who took liome victories were Rick Soup of the Blood Reserve over Derek Hoyt of Cranbrook in the 80- ponnd class; Glen Machan of Rocky Mountain House a unanimous decision over Ted Feller of Lethbridge in the IBS- pound class; Gary Spaeigct, Rocky Mountain House, with a unanimous decision over Brian Slumpt of Brocket in the 60- pound class; Ernie Black Rab- bit of the Blood Reserve won the 70-pound class over Wes Luke of Cranbrook; Barry Black Rabbit u' the Blood Re- serve stopped Terry Morris of Lelhbridge in the 100-pound class: Robert Harder of Rocky Mountain House took a un- animous decision over Curtis Small Face in the 80-pound class; Ken Sorenson of Rocky Mountain House took a unani- mous decision over Curtis Calf Rope of the Blood Reserve in the 100-pound class; Wayne Louis of Creston took the 119- pound class with a split deci- sion over Conrad Sincennes of Lethbridge Bruce Anderson, Rocky Mountain House gained a unanimous decision over Sheldon Hoyt of Cranbrook in the 80-pound class; Hugh Calf Rope of the Blood Reserve wliipped Bob Kroeker of Leth- bridge in the 119-pound class and Gordon Houghton stopped Oliver Shooting of the Blood Reserve in the 133-pound class. Sorenson was the officials choice as best all round boxer Saturday evening. The Rocky Mountain House fighter also won the best right band hon- ors as well as the best effort shown by a fighter. Chiefmoon was the choice as best left hand fighter and the one dis- playing the best footwork. T h e sportsmanship award went to Roy Harder of Rocky Mountain House.

Rash of stars now free agents By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS I Thirty-three National Football j League players, including such. stars as Bart Starr, MacArthur Lane and R a y Nitschki of Bay Packers. Bill Mun- son Detroit Lions. Dick Gor- don of Chicago Bears and Clint Jones and Gene Washington ol Minnesota Vikings becanie free agents today. It is not known how many of the 33 have actually played out their options wilh the purpose of seeking a job with another club and how many are caught in the situation revolving around the wage-price freeze. But they officially became free agents at midnight Sunday, having played last season with- out contracts and not having yet signed for the 1972 campaign. The NFL would not disclose Uie names of the dissatisfied players, but The Associated Press learned the names of most of them. An NFL spokes- man said that when the league has gathered together the names of all the unsigned play- ers, it would send out notifica- tions lo each of the 2fi clubs telling them of the free agents. "They can then negotiate with any of the players and the play- ers are free lo talk with any he said. LIST CUT The group of unsigned players was reduced by five over the weekend when running backs Donny Anderson and Roy Shiv- ers and quarterback Gary Cuozzo signed with St. Louis tight end Alvin Reed came (o terms with Houston and quart- erback Bill Kilmer signed with Washington. 0 I'd firs Findlcy to honor contract.

(CP) The winning and losing coaches both wore long faces after Guelph CMCs took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven Centennial Cup final Sunday night by defeating Red Deer Rustlers 3-2. Red Deer coach Al Cadman, stung by two shorthanded bemoaned the mistakes that made them possible. Bill Tay- lor, his opposite number, was disenchanted with the Guelph penalties that made the short- handed goals necessary. Paul Fendley, whose penalty- killing also was a feature of the CMCs' 4-2 victory' 'n Friday's opening game, broke away to give Guelph a 2-1 lead In the second period with a team-mate in the box. The Rustlers got that one back but John Woods eluded their power play during another Guelph penalty to score the Petty comes back to win MARTINSV7LLE, Va.

"They made two mistakes and we scored two goals or it would have been a different game CALLS IT 'BUSH' He said his team played "bush-league" hockey in the second period and picked up a lot of stupid penalties. Both coaches agreed that the Rustlers looked teller than in the opening game and (hat they would get better yet. "We had more buslle and de- sire Cadman said. "But we blew It after coming back to tie the game. We'll have to get the same kind of effort in the next game without making so rnady mistakes." They were outshot 34 to 26 Sunday night but were robbed by goaltender Ted Lcnssen on several good scoring opportuni- ties. The Rustlers' penalty killers had their chance to shine in the third period when Terry Willchen, Joe Murphy and Tom Lindskogg prevenled the CMCs from getting a shot on goal for a minute and 10 seconds while Ihey held a Iwo-man advantage. Guelph drew 43 of the total of 80 penally mimiles assessed by referee Jim Lever. Bill Kestell ot Guelph and John Simkin of Red Deer were given majors for a fight in the last minute of the second period. The series moves to Guelph for (he next (wo games Wednes- day and Friday night.

Chuvalo, who has never been off his feet In 86 fights, dis- missed Ali's complaints about low blows as nonsense. "In our last fight, All was wearing his trunks up around here." Chuvalo said, drawing a line midway up his chest. "It's just like those cartoons, where the rabbit pulls up his trunks until all you can see are his ears. He's just trying to take away some of my host punches, (o the solar plexus." The 30-year-old All, whose only loss in 36 fights came in March, 1971 to Joe Frazier, has been training hard for the fight. He is expected lo weigli in today at 216 pounds, less than he has weighed for any fight since the Frazier ba'.fle.
