Holyfield defeats last -
obstacle in ath to top
by Andy Stabile
Daily Sports Writer
Evander Holyfield had been climbing a mountain. Thursday night, he
finally reached the top.
Holyfield scored a third round knockout of James "Buster" Douglas to
become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. Although
Holyfield's reign as champ is just beginning, his capture of the title has
ended a long uphill struggle. A struggle to call himself "champion" that
should have ended years ago.
The 1984 Summer Olympic Games featured Holyfield as a 178 lb.
light-heavywieght. Many considered the young American to be the best
fighter of any weight class at the games. Through his first four fights, he
disappointed no one, easily disposing his opponents.
However, in his next fight, Holyfield was stopped short of his
Olympic dream.
. Holyfield was in the second round of the semifinal bout with New
Zealander Kevin Barry. As Barry began to stagger, Holyfield threw a right
to the body followed by a vicious left hook to the head just as ring offi-
cial Gligorije Novicic yelled "STOP."
Novicic signalled the fighters to break as Holyfield threw the punch,
but Barry went sprawling across the canvass and was counted out. Novicic
then disqualified Holyfield for hitting on the break.
Replays showed Holyfield's punch was well on its way before the ref-
eree's signal. The enraged crowd knew it, Holyfield knew it and Barry
probably knew it (though he was in no condition to say so). But surpris-
ingly, Holyfield accepted the official's decision as final, without argu-
ment.
A Yugoslav named Josipovic won the gold. Yet, what most remember
was Holyfield's impressive boxing, the tainted bronze medal he was
awarded, and his display of class under adversity that has characterized his
career ever since.
Holyfield continued his climb to be champion, enduring criticism and
hardship along the way. Many said he was too small - not a true heavy-
weight but a bulked-up cruiserweight. They said he was too slow and that
he had no punching power.
Through it all, he did not complain or verbally attack his doubters.
Rather, he kept faith in himself and let his fists do the talking. Those
fists earned him another chance to reach the top of the mountain, and only
a slightly-rotund heavyweight champion named "Buster" stood in his
path.
Last Thursday, Holyfield finally proved to the world and to himself
that he is a champion. He proved he is a legitimate heavyweight. He
proved his speed and quickness. And with one crushing right that sent
Douglas to the mat for over three minutes, he proved his punching power.
Holyfield won with class, not with arrogant talking as is the norm in
the boxing world. Holyfield reached the top of the mountain. Now he can
finally call himself a champion.
Those who watched him climb knew he was one all along.

Men's soccer nets fifth straight
Michigan goalie Marc Kuiper allows first goal in five games

by Walter Butzu
Daily Staff Writer
After Michigan men's soccer
coach Don Schwartz witnessed his
team push its win streak to five
games yesterday, he offered a surpris-
ing statement - "We were disap-
pointed!"
The Wolverines posted a solid 5-
2 victory over Alma College on the
road. But two late Alma goals in the
second half ended a four-game streak
of shutouts by Michigan goalie
Marc Kuiper - thus, the disap-
pointment.
Michigan played well in the
opening half. Early in the first half,
first-year sweeper Brian Rosewarne
opened the scoring with the first of

his two goals.
The prettiest play of the game
came on the Wolverines' second
goal. Senior Rob Albritton carried
the ball down the field,'leaving
many Alma defenders in his path. He
then made a perfect pass to sopho-
more Kelley Kuehne who kicked the
ball past the Alma goalie.
Guy Metsger added a score to
give Michigan a 3-0 lead at half-
time, and it seemed Kuiper would
coast to a fifth shutout.
A different Michigan team, how-
ever, came off the bench for the sec-
ond half. Though the jersey numbers
hadn't changed, the Wolverines'
style of play deteriorated.
Alma scored quickly, but Michi-

gan put the game out of reach with
two quick goals. Alma ended the
scoring with a goal off a penalty
shot late in the game.
'The midfielders...
beat the opposing
players to the ball, got
back quickly on
defense, and con-
trolled the tempo of
the game.'
- Tim Puckett
Michigan defender

Alma's goal," Schwartz said. "I
would have pulled Kuiper whether or
not he had given up that goal."
Despite the defensive lapses i
the second half, Schwartz w ,
pleased with his team's play.
"We did not accomplish our main
goal of shutting them out," he said.
"We played a solid first half and
pressed hard. The second half was
not up to par, but I'm basically
pleased with everyone's play."
Junior defender Tim Puckett
added, "The midfielders played well
especially Todd Neff and Fra*;
Karabetsos. They beat the opposing
players to the ball, got back quickly
on defense, and controlled the tempo
of the game."

After Alma's first score,
Schwartz replaced Kuiper with first-
year keeper Alex Brodsky. "Brodsky
was already warming up before

One team ended last year with a
31-21 victory against Virginia in the
Florida Citrus Bowl. The other
stayed at home after its first losing
season since 1980.
Illinois has continued with its
winning ways, boasting a 6-1 record
and a No. 5 national ranking. On the
other hand, Iowa has made a com-
plete turnaround after a disappointing
5-6 record in 1989. The Hawkeyes
are currently ranked No. 13 with a 6-
1 record, only losing at Miami (Fla).
On Saturday, the Hawkeyes travel
to Illinois in a game that most peo-
ple are talking about as the one that
will determine the Big Ten Cham-
pion.
"It's certainly a key game," Ohio
State coach John Cooper said. "The
team that wins will be in the driver's
seat, but there's a lot of football left
to be played."
Illinois coach John Mackovic
agreed. "Of course this is going to
be a big game to see who emerges as

the frontrunner for the title," he said.
"But we are reminding ourselves that
there are other games after this one.
We can't put everything all in one
game and forget about the rest."
Other coaches in the conference
agree that this game will determine
the champion - except Iowa coach
Hayden Fry.
"I fully disagree with that," Fry
said. "We've got three tough games
left (Ohio State, Purdue and at Min-
nesota) and Illinois has at least two
tough games (at Michigan and at In-
diana). But we're looking forward to
the ballgame.
"We feel good about ourselves
and our chances," Fry added. "We're
playing with more experience ari
not making dumb mistakes. Ifce ,
based on our performances, we dc-
serve our No. 13 ranking. My foot-
ball team is going to keep getting
better."
