Chuck Wepner Wants Ali Rematch CLEVELAND (AP) — Chuck Wepner headed home Wednesday as a hero to liis fans, still growling that he wants another chance at Muhammad Ali and contending that "the only thing he landed on me was the job." With dark glasses hiding the 19 stitches hi three cuts about his eyes, Wepner breakfasted late and quietly, then flew to Newark, N.J., where a crowd of well- wishers was to welcome him. A spokesman said the battered challenger had received scores of telephone calls since the fight from fans "who proclaim him a national hero." "Sure, I want another chance at him," Wepner said, crediting "great condition" with enabling him to survive all except the final 19 seconds of his bid for the world heavyweight boxing crown. Another Shot But the former Marine from Bayonne, N.J., said that if he gets another shot a Muhammad Ali he wants a better chance to fight his own way. Until then, Wepner expects "offers from Europe," his manager, Al Braverman, said. Braverman said he didn't know yet who Wepner's opponent may be or when the fight may be scheduled. "It'll be whoever they designate as their champion, the European champion," Braverman said. Dazed and Bleeding Wepner, dazed and bleeding, was struggling to return to his feet when referee Tony Perez stopped the fight in die 15th round, declaring Ali the winner by a technical knockout. Wepner contended that Perez had intervened too quickly all evening and "kept breaking us up." "My hands were free, and I told him a couple of times, 'Let us alone, let us fight,' but he kept coining in too fast," Wepner said, referring to the times he pummeled Ali while the champ lay back on the ropes. Every- Time "Every time we fought on the ropes I got the best of it," Wepner said. "I don't want to fight the guy in the middle of the ring; he's faster than me." It was Ali's jabbing left which did the damage, and it was Ali's quick dancing mat left Wepner frustrated, the challenger said. "His jab is so fast," Wepner said. "I couldn't get away from the job, and he's moving away all the time. Pretty Boy ''He's a pretty boy. He wanted to stay out front; he doesn't want to trade one for one. WHEEL ALIGN "And I don't want to do it that way. I even waved to him a couple of times, 'C'mon and fight,' but he only fought 30 or 40 seconds a round." He said his conditioning kept him on his feet through most of the fight.

"This is the first time I've been able to train full time in 11 years of boxing." Gone Route He contended that he could have gone the route if Peres had not been so fast. "It was just complete exhaustion that I more or less fell down," Wepuer said of the finale that found him rubber-legged, glassy-eyed and hanging on the ropes. "I looked up at the clock and saw there was 22 seconds to go." Anthony Captures Lead In U.S. Bowling Open GRAND PRAIRIE, Tex. over 233.
