Favored Despite the time lag. now that Moore has the opportunity he's favored to take the 175-pound crown from Maxim, n. 30-year-old gent from Cleveland.

More than $60.000 in receipts has been Iced away already, nntl that j was enough (o establish a new St. | Louis record. To that expected $80,000 haul you probably can safely add fl minimum of $50.000 to the purse. That represents the raiilo-TV sponsor's reported purchase price tor the air rights. Maxim has been guaranteed about J75.0DO in making his third defense of the world title he took from England's Freddie Mills In 1950. But the fact he'll receive only a token p.iytnent doesn't bother Moore, who insists. "The innin thing Is that I'm finally getting my shot, r know I can beat him. I'm going to knock him out." Maxim retorts: "I'm the champ and I'll still be he champion when the fight's ver."
