Cerdan Certain He'll Be Champ NEW YORK (CP) Marcel Cerdan Jr. of France will be the first to admit he is no chip of] the old block. But he follows up saying he will become a box- ing champion of the world in his "own way." The son of the late middle- weight champion says: "It is un- 'air to ask the son of such a jreat fighter to be as good as he ,vas." The elder Cerdan won the world middleweight title when he knocked cut Tony Zale in the 12th round of their IMS meeting n Jersey City, N.J. He lost the jtle in his first defence against Jake Lamotta in Detroit two months later, after fighting with a broken arm for 10 rounds.

Cerdan, who shares the same training quarters at the Concord Hotel in the Calskills near Mon- ticello, N.Y., as his 21-year-old opponent, Donato Paduano of Montreal, says he has been asked "thousands of times" if he ever expects to reach his father's greatness. DARED TO BE GREAT Parisians, Cerdan said in an interview, "almost dare me to resemble my father in the ring." "I am not the same style as my father, but I hope to be champion of the world some day, as he was.'1 It does not bother the 26- year-old Cerdan not to be ac- :epted by his people as his cele- irated father was. "When I become champion, as I know I will, my father and I will be the only father-and-son vorld champions in the history of Cerdan said. "Maybe then my people will inally accept me. But even then, I still know that I will not have reached my father's great- ness." Cerdan's manager, Philippe F i 1 i p pi, has managed ami trained 10 world and European champions.
