Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Norton game Ali named split on a INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) One round saved Muham- mad Ali from oblivion and will bring the boxing world what it once thought would be the greatest fight ver- sus Joe Frazier. That fight, in the advanced planning stages, will gross more than a million dollars, but Ali showed it will be a fight between a pair of has- beens. George Foreman knocked out Frazier in two rounds and Ali needed everything he still possessed to win the 12th round at the Forum on Mon- day night. That won a split decision over Ken Norton. If he had lost, the era of Ali in boxing would have ended. Norton had beaten him, break- ing Muhammad's jaw, last March 31, and the San Diego puncher landed the harder blows in the rematch. At 31, the former heavyweight champion said: "If you looked at movies of this fight and movies of my early fights, you would see I haven't slowed very much. I have made my comeback. I would like to fight Frazier next." Joe Frazier outpointed Ali in 15 rounds on March 8, 1971, and reigned as the chmapion, a position All never has attain- ed since he was stripped of his crown on draft evasion charges which later were reversed by the U S. Supreme Court. Ah, at 212, danced his way to a big early lead Monday night, then was slugged into corners by Norton and finally won the 12th round. Referee Dick Young scored the fight 7- 5 for Ali and Judge John Thomas saw it 6-5 for the ex- champ Judge George Latka scored 6-5 for Norton. It was Norton who proved to be the more punishing puncher and the man who tried to stalk an elusive target that danced around the ring and threw telling jabs. "I think I the San Diego fighter declared. "I had the more decisive punches and more power in my punches." Norton, at 205, was only two years younger than his foe from Deer Lake, Pa., but has been fighting only seven years. He showed a cut under the left eye in the 10th round, but it was Ah who talked of injury saying he had hurt his right hand in the sixth round. There was bedlam as the fighters went to their dressing rooms. First there was micro- phone trouble when they were supposed to hold a joint news conference, and then there was jostling between reporters and special patrolmen when Ali went to his dressing room. Those who could reach Ah heard him say: "He tried to win the 12th round, too, but he couldn't. I'm satisfied with my com- eback. I am scheduled to meet Rudi Lubbers in Jakarta and then I'd like to meet Frazier." The fight against Holland's heavyweight champion, on tap since last spring, is scheduled Oct. 20.

Newcombe in FOREST HILLS, N.Y (AP) John Newcombe was play- ing such bad tennis at one point last year that he took an evening off from the professional tour and went on a beer-drinking binge "I got very drunk one night and decided either to quit or put out." said the debonair Australian who now calls Tex- as his home. "When I put out I was sur- prised at how bad I was. It took me two weeks to get back into shape." This year, he virtually quit playing. In the first four months he did nothing but represent Australia in Davis Cup. But he recently decided to try for a comeback. Winning the U.S Open Ten- nis Championship wasn't a bad start POWERED KODES The handsome 29-year-old overpowered a scrambling Jan Kodes of Czechoslovakia 6-4. 1-6. 4-6. 6-2. 6-3 for the top prize at Forest Hills Sundav Newcombe "retired" after he won the Australian title in early January He won Wimbledon in 1967 and 1970-71 and -had planned his first major comeback test there this year But the Association of Tennis Professionals, of which he is a member, abstained from play in anger over the ouster of Nikki Pilic who refused to play Davis Cup for Yugoslavia. Kodes, 27. won the English title but was chided for winn- ing against a bunch of un- knowns. "I think he showed us he's a real worthy said Newcombe in praise of his op- ponent. "In the second and third sets today he kept digg- ing gold out of the ground. Sort of everything I did he had a counter for."
