LAS VEGAS - It was all Mu-
hammad Ali's show, and a poor
one at that, until with sudden
fury he pounded Ron Lyle into
total submission at 1:08 of the
11th round Friday night to re-
tain his world heavyweight
Ali missed his prediction of
an eighth round knockout by a
wide margin - and deservedly
so. He failed to do anything
over the first six rounds.
MIDWAY through the sev-
enth, Ali began to become
much more aggressive, flicking
jarring long lefts, but not with
sufficient force to hurt Lyle.
Ali came out for the eighth
and went after Lyle steadily,
dancing, c i r c I i n g, throwing
combinations, but still not
really hurting the challenger,
who actually flared back at him
as the round ended.
The rabid group of Lyle sup-
porters from Denver echoed
with cheers.
Ali slowed down again in the
nilth and tenth rounds, danc-
in, doing nothing.
Just before the 11th round be-
gs, he told his handlers, "I'll
finish him this round."
BUT WHEN the bell rang for

the 11th round, Ali for a few
seconds seemed to continue his
lazy tactics. Then the right
hand flashed with all the power
of old. The punch landed flush
in Lyle's face.
The power was such that it
drove Lyle back into the cen-
ter of the ropes.
Ali moved like a panther and
the blows began: left, right,
left, right in a savage tattoo as
he drove Lyle into his own cor-
Lyle attempted to escape and
was hit with a cracking left
that moved him out of the cor-
ner and along the ropes.
ALI REFUSED to let Lyle es-
cape, driving him into a neu-
tral corner, continuing the rain
of punches.
At 1:08, referee Fred Hernan-
dez stepped in, although Lyle
had not gone down. He waved
Ali off. Lyle stood for a mo-
ment, then moved out to pro-
test, a protest vigorously echoed
by his manager Chickie Fer-
rara. -
"It's not kosher," Ferrara
complained. "This is a cham-
pionship fight. They never
should have stopped it without
the man even going down."

flattens Lyle

When the end came, Ali was
behind on the cards of judges
Art Lury and Bill Kipp. The
other judge, John Mangricina,
had the bout even. But it was
obvious that if Hernandez had
not halted the fight, Lyle could
not have lasted.
BUT UNTIL the end came,
Lyle fought a very intelligent
He refused to be baited into
wild rushes, such as Ali had
taunted George Foreman into
when he regained the title last
October in Africa.
"He was in good shape to
punch for a while, but in the
end, he was just too tired to
continue - just like Wepner
and Foreman," Ali said.
Ali was paid $1 million - "I
ain't ashamed to fight for a
million" - his cheapest purse
in his last four fights, Ali said.
Next, it will be $2.5 million
for the Bugner fight, and then
perhaps as much as $8 million
against Joe Frazier.
Lyle, getting perhaps his last
chance at the title, which came
six years after he was paroled
following 7 years in the Colo-
rado State Prison for second-
degree murder, made $100,000.

MADISON - The seemingly
invincible Michigan tennis team
continues to roll on toward an-
other Big Ten title at the con-
ference championship meet
The six Wolverine singles
players and three doubles pairs
did not lose a set yesterday in
quarterfinal competition. "I
was very happy with the way
be played, especially since we
lost no sets," beamed coach
Brian Eisner.
M i c h i g a n currently has
30 points, five ahead of Min-
nesota. The Gophers did not
play Michigan in dual meet ac-
tion, but did lose to Wisconsin,
which was in turn destroyed 9-0
by the Wolverines.
In an interesting develop-
ment, Webb Hayne of Illinois,
who won No. 4 singles last
year to prevent a Michigan
sweep, will not repeat. He lost
to Minnesota's Bill Stark in No.

McGuire wins
IOWA CITY - The Michigan
track team qualified six people
for the semi-finals and finals
and won one event here, at the
Big Ten Conference track
The Wolverines are currently
third, behind Indiana and Illi-
nois. Michigan's twelve points
all come thanks to Mike Mc-
Guire, who won the six mile in
a time of 28:59.7, qualifying for
the NCAA's.
Coach Jack Harvey was hap-
py with the way things were
going, and especially pleased
with McGuire. "He ran a sup-

er race," said Harvey. "The
race was slow, but there was
lots of strategy."
Qualifying for the finals were
miler Mark Foster (4:12.9) Jeff
McLeod (47.3) and Dave Wil-
liams (48.2) in the 440, and
Jim Hennigar (22.2) and Jim
Howe (22.3) in the 220. Henni-
gar and Howe also qualified for
the semifinals in the 100 yard
Golfers fourth
The Michigan golf team is cur-
rently in fourth place here at
the Big Ten Golf Champion-
ships. The team was fifth after
the first 18 holes with a 389
score, but rallied with a 390 in
the second 18 to ease one place
Michigan placed no golfer in
the top twelve. Individual
scores: Dave Casselman, 77-76,
153; Harvey Ely, 74-79, 153;
Tom McParlan, 76-80, 156;
Doug Davis, 79-80, 157; and Ken
Walchuck, 83-77, 160.
