OMAHA (A) - Joe Frazier,
who came out of a Philadelphia
slaughterhouse to gain fame in
the ring, will defend his world
h e a v y w e i g h t cham-
pionship against Ron Stander
tonight in this meat packing
Frazier was rated a 10-1 fa-
vorite for the fight which was
scheduled to start at 10:25 p.m.,
EDT, and seen on home tele-
vision beginning at 10 p.m.
Both men ate sluggers and
the chances are excellent that
the fight at the 10,050-seat Om-
aha Civic Auditorium, expected
to be sold out, will not last the
scheduled 15 rounds.
Frazier has scored 24 knock-
outs in winning all 28 of his
pro fights. Stander has 23 vic-
tories, 15 by knockout, one loss
and a draw.
The only common opponent
they have had is Manuel Ra-
mos. Frazier knocked Ramos
out in two rounds in New York
in 1966. Stander fought a draw
with the Mexican here in 1970
and then outpointed him in 10
rounds here last year.
One important difference in
the fighters is that Frazier has
never been cut while Stander
is known as a bleeder and has
had more than 60 stitches in
his face to back up the reputa-
last fight when he stopped Ter-
ry Daniels in four rounds in
New Orleans Jan. 15. Stander
weighed 241 - he's been heav-
ier - in taking a 10-round de-
cision over John Mac on March
20 at Council Bluffs.
This will be Frazier's fourth
defense since he won universal
title approval by stopping Jim-
my Ellis in five rounds Feb. 16,
1970, and it will be a fight for
charity. Frazier is giving half
of his purse to research for
sickle cell anemia and his man-
ager, Yank Durham, whose 4-
year-old son has the disease, is
donating his entire cut.
