Foryears, Las Vegas has robbednAmeri-
cans who continue to gamble away their
fortunes. The Michigan men's wrestling
team is in Vegas this weekend, but gam-
bling is hardly a priority.
The bright lights and big city should
not serve as a distraction to the team.
The Wolverines' visit is a mission in
experience, with a little bit of fun on
"A lot of our kids have not seen the
bright lights and what Vegas is all
about," coach Dale Bahr said. "(The
visit) is a good experience."
Despite the glitz and glamour, how-
ever, the team is in Nevada to wrestle.
The Las Vegas Open is a two-day
affair in which 35 of the top teams in
the West will be participating.
"It is the biggest pre-Christmas tour-
nament in the nation," Bahr said.
The opportunity to see national
powers such as No. 2 Nebraska and to
wrestle against other top teams has
"To take road trips out there would
take forever and here is a chance to
get it all in one spot," Bahr said.
The squad has wrestled in three open
tournaments thus far this season. The
difference between an open tournament
and the Las Vegas meet is both in how
the tournament is scored and in the
number of wrestlers that enter.
For the first time this season, points
will be tallied for the team. It will give the
squad an accurate barometer as to where
itstands in relation to many ofthe nation's
best teams. The Wolverines want to so-
lidify their position as a top-20 program.
Also, Bahr was forced to make a single
entry in each weight class for Vegas. In
the first three meets, every team member
was allowed to compete in his own weight
class. This week only 10 wrestlers will
compete for Michigan.
"We're going to enter our ten best guys
in our weight classes," Bahr said.
Despite the Wolverines' youth and
inexperience, the season started with
a bang. With meets at the Northern
Open in Madison, Eastern Michigan
and the Michigan Open in East Lan-
sing, Michigan hass olidified its lineup
for today's tournament.
In the lightest weight class, fresh-
man Joe Warren weighs in at 118
pounds. He is off to a fast start with a
12-5 record. Warren placed third in
Madison and at Michigan State and is
looking for a strong showing this
weekend. Coach Bahr describes War-
ren as a "kid with great potential."
Brandon Howe is wrestling at 126 de-
spite a shoulder problem. He's looking to
overcome the injury and regain the form
that had him ranked No. 13 nationally
during the preseason.
At 134 pounds, sophomore Brian Aparo
adds to the list of those rebounding from
broken bones. His elbow was in a cast and
he is looking to fulfill his personal goals.
Taya Hill, a true freshman, will wrestle
in the 142-pound weight class. He was a
three-time state champion in high schoo
who abounds with natural ability.
"if (Hill) could get rolling in the tour<
nament," Bahr said, "he could surprise g
lot of people."
Senior Jake Young competes at 150 _
pounds. Young took second place at the
Northern Open last weekend.
"He has provided a lot of leadership far
us," Bahr said.
JeffCatribonebrings his No.4nationa4
ranking into the meet in the 158-pound-..
weight class. He won a sudden-deat4-
wrestle-off with sophomore Bill Lacurc-
to secure his place at 158.
"We look for (Catribone) to conten
for a title out in Las Vegas," Bahr said
Lacure wrestles at the 167-pound levr
and, at 177 pounds will be senior Jesse-
Rawls, the team's captain.
He had to overcome a torn anteriods.
cruciate ligament that he suffered mid-
way through last season. He hopes t-
regain his former status as an All-Amer:
can which he achieved two years ago.
The 190-pound freshman Fran
Lodeserto, is a "natural athlete," accord,
ing to Bahr.
"AlI he needs to do is get more matches
under his belt," Bahr said.
The heavyweight division is anchored
by Michigan sophomore Airron
Richardson, who was an All-Americab
last year. Bahr said he expects him to.
finish in the top eight nationally.
Michigan sophomore Bill Lacure will wrestle in the 167-pound weight class this weekend in Las Vegas.
King tot Philadelphia for Tyson -
Mathis bota e esysaysn
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) --
New Jersey said no to the Mike Tyson-
Buster Mathis Jr. fight Wednesday,
so' Don King is taking his show to
The state Casino Control Commis-
sion, which barred King from doing
business with casinos here last year,
rejected Donald Trump's plan to have
five casinos sponsor the bout at Con-
Kingthen decided to go west -60
miles away - and got a warm recep-
tion from Mayor Ed Rendell and the
boxing commission. King said he is
licensed in Pennsylvania.
The fight will be held at the Spec-
trum Dec. 16. It will be televised live
on free television by Fox Sports, King
"Philadelphia is the home of Rocky.
Philadelphia is the home of the Con-
stitution. The constitutional congress
met there. I think this is what democ-
racy is all about."
Tyson, who has recovered from the
broken thumb that caused the fight's
postponement, has been sparring for
1 1/2 weeks and was unfazed by the
change of venue, his co-manager said.
"Mike doesn't care if it's in Phila-
delphia or Minnesota, he doesn't care
where it is," said John Home. "He's
ecstatic that it's in Philadelphia."
King, whose trial on wire fraud
charges ended in a mistrial, was still
under indictment in August 1994 when
the New Jersey Casino Control Com-
mission banned him. The ban remains
in place, despite the mistrial.
"I'm changing to Philadelphia be-
cause Philadelphia has the presump-
tion of innocent until proven guilty,
rather than New Jersey, which has the
presumption of guilty until proven
innocent," King said.
King said he didn't believe New
Jersey authorities would let Tyson
fight here, but that he agreed to try
because:Trump wanted to.
Trump sought to have his three ca-
sinos and the two Bally's properties
to sponsor Tyson-Mathis. His law-
yers structured a deal under which
King would assign the promotional
rights to an unidentified promoter.
Tyson would have been paid up to
$10 million by King and gotten a
share of the gate. The casinos, mean-
while, would have guaranteed up to
$5 million toward ticket sales.
But regulators said no dice. They
voted, 4-0, to reject Trump's request,
saying it was a thinly disguised at-
tempt to subvert the ban on King.
"Under this proposal. King would
pay an unspecified fee to Tyson, which
(Trump) contended would not be af-
fected by the guaranteed gate re-
ceipts," said commission Chairman
Bradford S. Smith.
Yet, unless the fee paid is the full
$10 million guarantee, it is clear that
the fee paid by King to Tyson will
necessarily be reduced by the antici-
pated fee to be paid to Tyson from the
guaranteed gate receipts.
"In this regard, the casinos would
be indirectly conducting business with
King and Don King Productions,"
Joseph Fusco, who represented
Trump, declined comment after the
hearing. Trump, who was traveling
Wednesday, could not be reached for
comment. A message left at his New
York office wasn't immediately re-
Fusco told commissioners King
would not benefit directly from the
casinos but struggled to answer when
Smith asked him if the fight could be
held without them.
He also said there was precedent
for granting Trump's request: The
Read Daily Sports
commission allowed Atlantic City
casinos to broadcast the pay-per-view
telecast of Tyson's fight with Peter
McNeeley, which King probably de-
rived proceeds from.
That was different, Smith said.
"It didn't involve sponsorship by
Atlantic City casinos and didn't in-
volve the payment of the guarantee,'
King called the ruling unconstitu-
"It was a blow against America, not
a blow against Don King," he said.
Tyson has fought once since being
released March 25 from an Indiana
prison, where he served three years
for rape. He beat McNeeley in 89
seconds Aug. 19 at the MGM Grand
in Las Vegas.
