(AP) The World Boxing Association said Wednesday it has not sanctioned the George Ali bout in Zaire as a match for the world heavyweight cham- pionship. Bill Brennan, WBA cham- pionship committee chair- man, said sanction for the match has been denied because the fight's promoters "have failed to comply with WBA rules concerning world championships." The WBA action, Brennan said, was intended to cast "no reflection on Foreman and Ali, since they are un- questionably the proper contestants for the heavyweight title." The fight is set for Oct. 30. But he said the fight's pro- moters had neither applied to the WBA for its sanction nor filed for WBA approval of the contracts.

HELSINKI (CP) Play may get rough at times, but Gordie Howe predicts there'll be no fistfights during the eight-game international hockey series between Team Canada and the Soviet Union. Howe, a noted pugilist in a long professional career, said Wednesday an international rule that calls for a 10-minute penalty for the aggressor in a fight discourages fisticuffs. He told a news conference of Finnish and Canadian reporters that he favors the international rule but said that it wouldn't work in North American hockey. Playing habits were formed long ago, he said, "and ani- mosities grow after you play 14 or 15 games against the same people." Howe, who came out of retirement last year to join Houston Aeros of the world Hockey Association, told one of 30 Finnish reporters at the news conference that fights are not staged in North American Hockey. "There isn't enough money in the whole WHA to pay me for letting somebody punch me in the nose." Coach Billy Harris, who ap- peared at the news conference with Howe and Bobby Hull, said the first game in the Rus- sian leg of the series probably will be the key to the whole series. There were one win for each team and two ties in the four Canadian games in the series. Either Don McLeod, who played in Team Canada's 8-5 loss in the third game of the series, or Gilles Gratton, will start in goal in Friday's ex- hibition game against the Fin- nish national team. Gerry Cheevers, who played in the other three games against the Russians, is nurs- ing a groin injury. Harris said Cheevers will be ready to play when the Soviet leg of their series opens Oct. 1 in Moscow. "Cheevers' injury is more serious than we've been letting he said. "He has trouble moving." Harris said he obligation to play Hull and Howe in Friday's game, but players like Pat Price, who won't play against the Soviet Union, will get more ice time. Harris said six players mis- sed an optional workout Wednesday afternoon, including Paul Henderson, who scored the winning goal in the last three games of the BOY'S GIRL'S CLASSES Oct. 2nd thru Dec. 18th (8 to 18 years) 35 for 3 months Register by Oet 1 ORR KARATE KUNG-FU 258A 13th St. N.
