Robinson vs. Maxim;

In Detroit 10-Rounder

Match To Be
On Television
By HARRY STAPLER
DETROIT -()- Chico Vejar's
ever-circling feet and Chuck Da-
vay's ever-cutting eyebrows will
be the big question marks in their
10-round televised battle before
a near sellout crowd at Olympia
Stadium tonight.
Vejar, who made a . defensive
fight in losing a decision to Davey
May 7, has changed his tactics.
He plans to keep circling in on
Davey from the right side. Davey
is a southpaw with a devastating
left jab.
*. * *
DAVEY suffered bad cuts on
his eyebrows in his disputed draw
with Carmen Basilio at Syracuse
recently and often. before was
chopped up above the eyes.
It's a cinch that Vejar, New
York University drama student,
will aim for Davey's eyes.
But Davey, undefeated grad-
uate student from Michigan
State making his first appear-
ance as a headliner in his home
city of Detroit, ranks as a 9 to
5 favorite.
The fight will be telecast and
broadcast nationally starting at
9 p.m.. A crowd of more 'than
15,000 was predicted by pro-
moters.
IN VEJAR'S workouts he con-
centrated on speed and a press-
ing technique - always pressing
from the side that would keep
him out of range of Davey's left
hand.
Vejar, who lost only twice in
42 fights, worked out exclusively
against two lefthanders - KO
Morgan of Detroit and Chuck
Boucher of Manchester, N.Y.
When preparing for his previous
fight with Davey, he faced a
southpaw in only a few work-
outs.
Davey floored him four times as
Vejar tried to lay back and coun-
ter punch.
After that battle Davey met
Basilio and was declared the loser
on a split decision. But when the
New York Boxing Commission
learned that referee Joe Palmer
had failed to score every round of
the fight, the commission official-
ly switched the verdict to a draw,
the second in Davey's career.
Davey's eyes were so badly cut
that he was unable to appear for
a scheduled May 11 fight with
Vejar here. The cuts are com-
pletely healed now.
Arcaro Claims
Number 3,000
CHICAGO -(P)--Eddie Arcaro
rode his 3,000th winner yesterday.
The veteran 36-year-old Arcaro,
"Mr. Big" of the jockey world,
scored No. 3,000 aboard Ascent, a
2-year-old filly, in the third race
at Arlington Park.
Arcaro, in his 21st season,
gained his 2,999th in the second
race on today's Arlington card
aboard Invigorator in a 5-fur-
long contest for 2 - year - old
maidens.
Only one other American jockey,
British-born Johnny Longden, has
produced more winners. Longden,
now riding on the west coast had
4,033, at the start of today's rac-
ing.
The world's mark is 4,476 win-
ners, ridden by British jockey
Gordon Richards.

Title at Stake
In New York,
NEW YORK-(W)-Joey Maxim
and, Sugar Ray Robinson sweated
it out in the gyms yesterday,
awaiting today's once-postponed
light heavyweight title bout at
Yankee Stadium.
As luck would have it, a warm
sun, wilting humid New Yorkers,
turned up 24 hours late. The
weather man promised more of
the same today, but he also fore
cast scattered thundershowers late
in the day.
* * *
SUGAR RAY, the middleweight
champ, weighed 160 to Maxim's
174% Monday but they must
weigh again today.
Because Maxim must make
175 pounds or less and Robin-
son has no weight problem,
many feel the postponement will
be more of a strain on the
champ from Cleveland. He
worked much harder than Rob-
inson, boxed over 104 rounds,
and traintd to hit a peak near
the class limit Monday. The
two-day wait is bound to have
some effect.
Up in Harlem where a large
crown jammed around the en-
trance to the uptown gym, await-
ing his appearance, Robinson zip-
ped through a light drill of sha-
dow boxing, bag punching and
rope skipping. He did no road
work.
ASKED IF HE thought the
postponement handicapped either
fighter, Robinson said, "It hurt&
us both-we want to get it over
with."
Later he said weight making
was bound to worry a fighter. He
pointed to his own troubles in thi
welter division.
The 15-round bout, scheduled
for 9:00 p.m. will not be carried
on home television or radio in
the United States. It will be
beamed to some 39 theaters in
25 cities on a closed theater-
TV circuit.
As always in New York, the
winner will be decided on a round-
scoring basis with two judges and
a referee voting. A supplementary
point-scoring system with the
winner of a round. getting from
one to four points, will back up
the round system.
