Ai conquers Ellis with TKO0in 12th

HOUSTON (-') - Muhammad
Ali, the dancy, boxing master of
old, unleashed a two - fisted at-
tack in the 12th round and stop-
ped former sparring partner Jim-
my Ellis in the Astrodome last
night in his first fight .since los-
ig a heavyweight title fight with
Joe Frazier.
The end came at 2:12 of the
final round with the outgunned
Ellis completely helpless from
a barrage of lefts and rights
that sent him reeling around the
ring.
Ali was content for most of
each round to use his reach ad-
vantage and spear Ellis repeatel-
ly with what is one of the best
left jabs in boxing.
H o w e v e r, he occasionally
shook Ellis with a short right
hand counter or right hand off
the jab, especially in the 10th
when Ellis again was badly hurt.
Ali opened the 12 round as
though he would be content to
win by a decision. Referee Jay
Edson and both judges had Ali
ahead after 11 rounds, Edson by
a lopsided 110-93 which, under the
10-point system, meant he gave
Ali every round. Judge Earl Keel
had it 108-102 and judge Ernie
Taylor had it 107-104.
But suddenly, about midway
in the last round, Ali hurt Ellis
with a short right to the jaw,
then drove him back with a left
hook to the head that buckled
Ellis' knees.
Ali leaped to the attack and
began driving Ellis around the
ring with straight lefts and
short rights that left Ellis help-
less.
Edson said he stopped it "be-
cause his eyes were bleary. There
was no question in my mind he
was hurt. Angelo Dundee was
ready to come into the ring."
Ellis almost went down twice
from Ali's two-fisted attack and
was standing along the ropes
with his hands at his sides when
referee Jay Edson signaled a
halt.
It was a brilliant exhibition
of jabbing, footwork and pre-
cision punching, and Ali's best
showing since his return to the
ring after a 312-year exile be-

Canham seeks
lights for ,
'M' stadium
DETROIT sU)--The University
of Michigan plans to light Mich-
igan Stadium and is going to
play night football games in the
massive 101,001 - seat structure&
in 1972. the Detroit News re-
ported yesterday
The News quoted Athletic Di-
rector Don Canham as saying:
"I plan to ask our Board in Con-
trol of Intercollegiate Athletics
for permission to spend the
money for the lights at the
board's first meeting in Septem-
her.
1 lie cost of lighting the sta-
dium was estimated at $250,000.
Canham was quoted as saying
funds for the lighting would
come from Michigan's share of
NCAA football TV money and,
from professional football exhi-
bitions in the stadium.
He said the lighting would be
sufficiently bright to permit
night-time television of games.

-Assoeiate Pres
MUHAMMED ALI just manages to avoid a left from Jimmy Ellis
in the second round of their heavyweight bout in Houston last night.
Ali, however, managed to get in more than his share of shots as he
gained a 12th round TKO over his former sparring partner.

cause of a draft evasion con-
viction which recently was over-
turned by the U.S. Supreme
Court.
The fight was the first of a
planned series of three by All,
who is gunning for a rematch
with Joe Frazier and the heavy-
weight title he held before be-
ing stripped because of his draft
troubles.
It was a fairly even fight for
the first three rounds with
Ellis, the former World Boxing
Association champion who was
giving away 31%s pounds, forcing
the fight and giving as good as
he got.
But in the fourth round the
29-year-old Ali, who weighed

220%,., the heaviest of his career,
shook up Ellis, 189, a couple of
times and from there on le was
in charge.
In an earlier boit in Net
York preceedig the Ellis-Ali
confrontation, f o r m e r world
champion Emile Griffith, tuning
up for another middleweight
title match, pounded out a
unanimous 10 - round decision
over Nessim "Max" Cohen at
Madison Square Garden.
Griffith, a five-time former
world champion three times at
the welterweight 1 e v e I and
twice as a middleweight, took
charge in the third round and
easily outpointed the 29-year-
old Morrocan born Frenchman.

Bryant seeks open i

By The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES-Coach Paul
"Bear" Bryant of the University
of Alabama football team says
he wishes all teams could be
eligible to play in the Rose Bowl
game.
"I'd like to see the Rose Bowl
open," said Bryant who was a
player for Alabama in 1935 when
it beat Stanford 29-13 at Pasa-
dena.
"I sure would like to see it
open and I'd like to see it soon,"
he added. "I'm not going to tee
off too many more times."
Bryant had some support
from Coach John McKay of
Southern California who com-
mented, "We should never ac-
cept the Big Ten's No. 2 team."
He and McKay were in agree-
ment on one other major point
-that the National Collegiate
Athletic Association may have
to adopt separate rules for uni-
versities engaged in major foot-
ball.
