Frazier

KINGSTON, Jamaica (Reuter)
-George Foreman, a young
American with dynamite in his
fists, won the World Heavyweight
Boxing Title in the most dra-
matic fashion here last night
when he knocked champion Joe
Frazier down six, times in the
first five minutes of their fight
here and forced the referee to
stop the contest.
Frazier, who had been made
a five to two favorite, was de-
stroyed by the ferocious power
that Foreman packed in both his
fists.
THE CHAMPION barely sur-
vived the first round, in which
he took three, eight counts, and
was on the canvas when the bell
sounded.
The one-minute rest was quite
inadequate for Frazier to re-
cover, and Foreman tore in for
the kill when the second round
opened.
Frazier, stunned and bewilder-
ed, was sent crashing; down
three times in barely more than
one minute of the second round.
Each time he hauled himself
up but he was clearly stunned
and the third time he got up
American referee Arthur Mer-
cante stepped in, waving his
arms across his body to signal
the end of the fight.
Foreman, who has said no
opponent has ever hurt him and
none will, made a victory, leap
into the air and then was en-
gulfed by his handlers and sup-
porters.

The crowd was almost as
stunned by the drama and quick-
ness of events as Frazier. Thou-
sands sat silently in their seats
for long minutes after the fight
trying to take in what had hap-
pened.
THE DECISIVENESS of Fore-
man's victory could be the end
of the career of 29-year-old Fra-
zier, who had been talking be-
fore the fight of retiring in about
a year's time.
Frazier had looked extremely
sharp in training and appeared

to have recaptured the form he
showed in his stirring and pain-
ful win over Ali in March, 1971.
Since the Ali fight, however,
he had had only two fights-
both against mediocre opponents
-and all his sharpness was left
in the gymnasium.
PANDAMONIAN errupted in
the outdoor stadium where near-
ly 40,000 wildly excited Jama-
ciahs had assembled, most of
them expecting Frazier to be too
skillful and experienced for the
challenger.

Foreman, the 1968 Olympic
champion, who entered the fight
with 37 professional victories be-
hind him, thus captured the su-
preme prize in sport without ever
being in trouble or hurt in his
professional career - just as he
said he would.
After the fight Foreman said,
"God told me I would be cham-
pion."
"I'm not going to quit," vowed
Frazier after losing the title.
"I didn't want to hurt him any
more," said Foreman. "I kept
begging Yancey Durham (Fra-

zier's manager) to stop it."
"The fact that I didn't fight
tougher opponents in my past
two fights didn't effect the out-
come," claimed Frazier.
"I am not thinking about any
big fights now," said the 24-year-
old Foreman, who suddenly finds
himself looking down at Frazier
and Muhammad Ali, the two
dominant figures in boxing for
the past several years.
"All I want to do is stay still
a while and appreciate what I
have done, what God has let me
do."

Northwestern, playing very
unlike the Big. Ten cellar-
dweller and loser of 11 of 13
games, carried a one-point
lead into the locker room at
halftime and valiantly fought
back from a ten-point deficit'
early in the second stanza to
turn the game into an excit-
ing dogfight.
After leading the entire second
half, Michigan suddenly found it-
self in a 74-74 deadlock with 2:25
left following a six-point rally by
the Wildcats. Then Ken Brady
turned on the steam for the Wol-
verines with a lay-up off a beau-
tiful feed from Campy Russell.

Michigan appeared to be in good
shape when Wallace was whistledf
for traveling but the Wolverines
promptly had the ball stolen away.
Michigan was granted still another
reprieve when Kevin Kachan's1
jumper caromed high off the rim
and over the backboard.
On the inbounds-play Sibley
hacked Wilmore but the usually
impeccable foul-shooter was off the
mark with 1:06 remaining. Joe
Otis missed from the corner for
the Wildcats and Wilmore hauled
down the rebound, but the Wolver-
ines lost again on a turnover.
Sibley maneuvered around the
right side for a hanging layup that
went in-and-out, but he was fouled
on the play by C.J. Kupec. The
