ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) Mu- hammad All, lecturer, actor and fast food dealer, returns to his true profession of prize fighting tonight in a scheduled 15-round bout against Jerry'Quarry. "This is how I n my liv- ing; this is my said AU on the eve of his first fight since being stripped of his heavy- weight championship following his conviction for refusing in- duction into the U.S. Army. The conviction still is being ap- pealed. During the time since he knocked out Zora Folley, March Ali has lectured at col- leges throughout the country, starred in the short-lived Broad- way play Buck White Mid opened a chain of burger and french fry stands. Despite his long absence from the ring, excepting a few exhibi- tions, Al rules as the topJieavy favorite in the fight which has drawn little gambling interest. But there is general interest for the bout because of the con- troversial nature of Ali who rose to the boxing heights as Cassius Clay. ON CLOSED TV The fight starting at p.m. will be shown on closed- circuit television in the United States and Canada and will be beamed via satellite to Europe, South America, Asia and Rus- sia. With1 tickets for the Atlanta Municipal Auditorium scaled from to and not all sold, and seats avail- able for closed circuit televi- sion, the projected gross for the fight is million. Ali has been guaranteed against per cent of the gross which would bring him about million. Quarry is guaranteed against 22% per cent. A victory for Ali would set the stage for a big-money fight with Joe Frazier, who ascended to the title during All's exile. And an upset by Quarry would give the Californian another shot at Frazier who knocked him out in seven rounds June However, Frazier must first defend1 Ms title against light- heavyweight king Bob Foster Nov. 18 in Detroit. Just getting a licence to fight in Atlanta was a victory for Ah' who had seen numerous at- tempts for fights foiled since his conviction. Gov. Lester Maddox has publicly opposed the fight but he cannot legally stop it be- cause Georgia has no state box- ing commission. The promoters of the fight are House of Sports, Inc., whose president is State Sen. Leroy Johnson, and Sports Action, Inc. Ali, who has reach and weight advantage over Quarry, turned to the punch-for-pay ranks after winning the Olympic heavy- weight title for the United States in 1960 and has won all 29 of his pro fights, 23 by knock- out. Quarry, who considers this a championship fight since "Ali never lost the title in the is expected to try to mount a body attack in.an effort to tire Ali. He has a record of 37 victo- ries, 23 by knockout; four losses and four draws. He has been knocked out twice, by Frazier and by George Chuvalo. ANDY CAPP TCK.'
