The Salina Journal Sunday, January 19,1986 Page 20 I Witherspoon's title victory overshadowed SS^ 0 *** ATLANTA (AP) — Tim Witherspoon got back a piece of the heavyweight title, but he had to share the spotlight with Muhammad All and two fighters who didn't fight. Ali, the retired three-time heavyweight champion, who celebrated his 44th birthday Friday, got by far the biggest { ovation from the crowd at the Omni on the night Witherspoon I scored a majority decision over Tony Tubbs and took Tubbs' World Boxing Association title. Two other fighters, who got a Witherspoon lot of attention, especially from the media, were Michael Spinks, the International Boxing Federation heavyweight champion, and Larry Holmes, who was upset by Spinks last Sept. 21. Several hours before Witherspoon, a former World Boxing Council champion, beat Tubbs, promoters Butch Lewis and Don King announced that Spinks and Holmes would meet in a rematch sometime, somewhere in April. It will be part of a seven-fight series of heavyweight championship bouts to be televised by HBO. The purpose of the series is to crown an undisputed heavyweight champion in 1987. Spinks, Holmes and Pinklon Thomas, the WBC champion, attended a news conference at a downtown hotel, then watched Witherspoon beat Tubbs. Seth Abraham, a senior vice president for HBO said a reported figure of $26 million for the package was to high, but that the price tag was in the $20 million neighborhood. The first fight of the series will by a title defense by Thomas against Trevor Berbick March 22 at a site to be named. Then comes the Holmes-Spinks rematch. The next three fights will be defenses by Witherspoon, the winner of the Thomas-Berbick fight and the winner of the Spinks-Holmes rematch. Then in 1987, the WBA and WBC champions will meet, with winner fighting the IBF champion for the undisputed title. "This is a boxing series for fans," Abraham said. "A people's champion will emerge." , The Witherspoon-Tubbs fight was not a fight for the fans, at least not for casual fans. The 15-round fight was marked by mauling and infighting. Witherspoon, who .weighed 227, gained his edge by staying on top. of the 244-pound Tubbs and scoring with punches to the body. He also sent Tubbs reeling to the ropes with a left hook to the jaw in the eighth round. "Now I want it all," said Witherspoon, after winning the fight by three points on the card of one judge and by one point on the card of another. A third judge scored it a draw. "Tim won and I'm happy for him," Tubbs said. "It's back to the drawing board and then back to thetitle." Berbick prepped for his second title shot — he was outpointed by Holmes for the WBC title in 1981 — by stopping Mike Perkins in the final round of a scheduled 10-round mismatch. But Greg Page, a former WBA champion, might have lost hope for a title bid. Page dropped a 10- round unanimous decision to James "Buster" Douglas for his fourth loss in his last five fights.
