Mike Morley 1 Hagler may lose WBA portion of title Post Wire Services Marvelous Marvin Hagler could lose the World Boxing Association portion of his undisputed world middleweight title in the wake of a unanimous vote by the WBA's Championship Committee recommending that he be stripped of recognition. Counsel James Binn said Tuesday that the vote, taken last week, was based on Hagler's failure to fulfill the WBA requirement that he defend his title within six months. Hagler's last title defense took place last March when he defeated John Mugabi. "Hagler and his attorney have been notified and he has the right of appeal," Binns said from his office in Philadelphia. Morris Goldings, Hagler's attorney, said in Boston that the committee's vote will be appealed. Hagler is scheduled to fight former welterweight champion Sugar Ray Leonard April 6 in Las Vegas, Nev. The appeal will be taken up by the WBA's 21-man executive board, Binns said . . . American heavyweight James Broad reportedly is refusing to fight former world champion Gerrie Coetzee of South Africa in Pretoria, South Africa, because of a local high school's decision to bar a black youth from a track meet. The fight, billed as crucial to Coetee's hopes of a comeback, was scheduled for March 21 at Loftus Versfeld, a Pretoria rugby stadium. Coetzee, 31, lost his World Boxing Association heavyweight title in 1984 to American Greg Page. His most recent fight was March 5, 1986, when he was knocked out in the first round by Britain's Frank Bruno, leaving him with a career record of 30-4-1. ABC-TV, Churchill Downs have unsigned agreement through 1989 1 ABC-TV and Churchill Downs have J reached an agreement on extend-fjmt i"I tne contract for the network's fjp coverage of the Kentucky Derby - Kill llllTfl Mrt cirr fl -nl DP Sports announced last week the network had obtained the rights to provide live coverage of the Derby through 1989. The network's contract expires after the race this year. Business First, a weekly business newspaper in Louisville, reported this week that one unresolved matter was whether the ABC affiliate in the city, WLKY-TV, would have exclusive rights to the network's local broadcast of the Derby. The Louisville track has required that WHAS-TV, the Louisville CBS affiliate, have access to ABC's 90-minute Derby Day coverage ever since CBS lost the broadcast rights to ABC in 1974 .. .

British trainer Clive Brittain nominated Bengal Fire and Rumboogie for the Beam Stakes, the premier event at Turfway Park in Florence. Brittain, one of England's top trainers, is a friend of Cauthen's and reportedly is considering having him ride in the Beam Stakes, if Brittain's horses are selected to run in the 12-horse field.
