Burns is from British Columbia. (AP Wirephoto) Bobick scores first-round knockout in pro fight debut By TOM RRRTTINGEN Associated Press Writer MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) -- Duane Bobick, the Olympic heavyweight who didn't come home with the gold medal, made his homeslale fans forget that disappointment with a smashing victory in his profes 1 sionsl debut over Tommy Burns. The 22-year-old Bowlus, Minn., native pounded the Canadian veteran to the mal four times to win a technical knockout at 2:59 of the firsl round Tuesday night at the Minneapolis auditorium. "I'm glad the firsl one is over with ... I had few jitters," said the handsome redhead, whose loss to Cuba's Teoflio Stevenson in Munich last fall marked a disappointing finish to a fabulous amateur career. "It felt good to win at home, too," Bobick added. "Wherever I go, I know these people love me and I love all of them." Bobick showed no jitters and little love in the ring. Burns began forcing Ihe fight midway through the first round crowding in and swinging. Bobick fended off the blows, then floored the Canadian wit a right uppercut from a clinch. A left jab and right cross dropped Burns a second and a short left jab put him down again. The reeling Canadian stumbled down a fourth time from a right to the body before the referee stopped the fight. "I expected him to come after me from Ihe way he talked in the papers before the fight," Bobick said. "He was saying he. watched me fight in the Olympics and that I carried my right hand loo low." "But I've been working on keeping my righl up. He was hooking me but I was catching them, and he was unable to change his game plan right away." The right uppercut that felled Burns the first time told the approximately 3,000 fans that the 29-year-old construction worker from Vancouver wasn't going to give Bobick loo much trouble. Burns was slighlly paunchy at 215 pounds. Bobick looked fit at 210V 2 . "That was a good right, uppercut to the belly,". Bobick said. "A lot of' boxers don't train as good as they should ... it's easier lo do a few sit- ups than a lot of them. And Ihpse punches hurt." Burns, whose 13-9-1 pro record includes two losses lo Canadian champion George Chuvalo, was upset when Ihe fight was stopped and he let the referee know it. "1 was not happy, no," he said later. "I could have recovered, got my second wind. I was doing better loward the e n d , - I would have been all right." RCA standings as of April 9: All Around Cowboy 1.

Buffalo finally beats Montreal NY Rangers oust Boston in NHL By BRUCE LOWITT Associated Press Sports Writer "It's always a great thrill to get a winning goal in Montreal," said a glowing Rene Robert. Always? Perhaps Buffalo's right wing was overstating mailers a bit Tuesday night, considering it was the Sabres' first victory ever in Montreal in their Ihree- year history in the National Hockey League. *** Pro Hockey At A Glance By The Associated Press Mil, Stanley Cup Championships All lirst-of-7 Series Quarter-finals All Times KST Tuesday, April 10 Buffalo 3, Montreal 2, overtime, Montreal leads 3-2 New York 6, fioslon :], New York wins 4-1 Chicago 6, SI.

Last weekend they were looking down the barrel of a gun. They'd lost the first three games to the Canadiens and were one away from being summarily bounced out of their first Stanley Cup Playoffs. But they came to life with a 5-1 thrashing of Montreal's "Flying Frenchmen" Sunday night. Robert's second goal of the game, with 9:18 gone in overtime, catapulted the Sabres to .1 stunning 3-2 triumph and sent the suddenly red-hot series back to Buffalo Thursday night for a sixth game. This winner of this first- rounder faces the winner of the Philadelphia-Minnesota series. The Flyers took a 3-2 advantage with a 3-2 overtime victory over the North Stars. While the scrappy Sabres were fending off elimination, Boston's defending Stanley Cup champions and the St. Louis Blues were having no such luck Tuesday night. The Bruins hadn'l been expected to have much trouble polishing off the New York Rangers--but it was the Rangers who did the polishing, wiping Boston off the ice 6-3 behind rookie Steve Vickers' three goals to take Iheir scries in five games. New York now faces the Black Hawks starting Thursday night in Chicago. The Hawks also won their series in five, knocking the Blues off 6-1. In the World Hockey Association's first round, the Minnesota Fighting Saints outlasted Winnipeg 6-4 for their first victory in three games against the Jets. And the Ottawa Nationals won their first in three against New England by swalting the Whalers 4-2. Gary Dornhoefer got Philadelphia's winner in Ihe ninth minute of overtime. He didn't remember exactly what happened--and Minnesota goalie Cesare Maniago didn't believe what happened. "I got the puck at center ice," Dornhoefer said. "I wasn't aiming at any corner of the net. Cesare went down on his knees. Then I remember seeing the puck in the net." Vickers got two of his goals in the first period, but it was Bruce MacGregor's goal late in the period that put the Rangers ahead to stay. Stan Mikita scored what proved to be the winner against the Blues, making it 2-0 lale in the first period after Jim Pappin had scored for Chicago barely a minute into the game. Cliff Koroll got another Chicago goal 30 seconds into the second period before Fran Huck clicked for St. Louis.' Then Chico Maki, Ralph Backstrom and Lou Angotti turned it into a rout. Jimmy Johnson scored two of the Fighting Saints' goals, the second snapping a 4-4 lie 6:10 into the third period. Rick Sentes got Ottawa's first and last goals--his firsl two in the playoffs--lo counter a pair by New England's Tom Webster.

An atlempt to bring Ihe two leagues together in the near future failed when the WHA vetoed Tuesday any merger or association with the NHL pending the outcome next fall of antitrust lawsuits against the NHL and its reserve clause. "We arc in very serious litigation and any future relationship with Ihe NHL would have (o come out of Ihe litigation," said Gary Davidson, WIIA president. The WIIA will go ahead wilh its lawsuits seeking damages "in excess of $50 million on all accounts" from the NHL "because of Ihe slrong position our counsel tells us we have," Davidson said. The WHA alleges that the NHL has violated I lie antitrust laws but maintaining a conspiracy to monopolize major league hockey, using Ihe reserve clause to bind players to' one team until traded or sold, and preventing compel it ion. The WHA, which lias just completed its first regular season, drew more lha 2,500,000 fans in a dozen cities in Ihe Un- ited Slates and Canada. It set a precedent by dropping the reserve clause from ils standard contracts. As long as the NHL retains its reserve clause, it would be impossible for the WIIA lo consider any formal agreement with the NHL, Davidson told a news conference afler a two- day meeting of WHA owners-or trustees.
