Rocky Might Talk Tomorrow NEW YORK (fP)— Rocky Marcl- ana's big decision— to retire or not to retire— is due within 10 days and may be made tomorrow when the heavyweight champion meets with his manager, Al WeiLt, at Macon, Ga. Since Weill and promoter Jim Norris, president of the International Boxing Club, have patched up their "leud", only the word of Marciano is necessary to start the drums beating for a big September match. NorrLs revealed plans yesterday for a series of elimination bouts to provide a September challenger —or a new champ if Rocky quits. Norris said he had to await word from Weill on Marciano's future. "There is a feeling around that he is going to retire," said Norris. "I don't, share that feeling. If we can show him where he can draw n $500,000 gate in September we think he will fight. It is up to us to come up with a good challenger." The blueprints for a tournament already are in the hands of Norris. A Johnny Holman-Bob Baker j match is set for Miami, May 9. j A Floyd Patterson - Hurricane i Jackson bout is in the making, prob- i ably for early June. | Archie Moore, the lightheavy j champ who defends against Yolande Pompey in London in Juiie.[ also figures in the picture.
