The Ottawa Journal TITLE FIGHT SATURDAY Ellis Gives Edge To Mildenberger NEW YORK (UPQ Jimmy Ellis doesn't seem at all concerned about the outcome of the heavyweight tion bout between Karl Mil-denberger and Oscar Bonavena in Frankfurt. Germany on Saturday, but he probably will be meeting the winner on Nov. II. . Ellis, who stopped Leotis Martin in the ninth round of their quarterfinal match in the heavyweight elimination tourney, said be might give an edge to Mildenberger in the match' Saturady. "I think Bonavena might have trouble with a southpaw," said Ellis. 'I've never fought a southpaw as a pro. but I did fight a couple in the amateurs. It's completely different You're used to see a man facing you one way - and all of a sudden it's all turned around. v An official of the Ameri- can. Broadcasting Company, , which is televising the bouts in the tournament, went along with Ellis and said he was almost certain to meet the winner of the Milden-berger-Bonavena fight in the semi-final round. . Thad Spencer who brat . Ernie Terrell in a quarterfinal bout., will - probably . meet the winner of the Floyd ' Patterson-Jerry Quary fight that, will be held in Los Angeles on Oct 28. The proposed date of that semi-final , bout is Dec 2 but neither site for the semi-final bouts has been determined. The area where Ellis spoke - has been a trouble spot in ,the past "I had 60 arrests the first year I was here. said local patrolman Oswald Thompson, ' who helped get the new gym built for the area, "but since our athletic program started there have been 20 in the past year." - The adulation that Ellis , experienced at the. amateur show is new for him. Only two years ago he was considered a mediocre middleweight, but he has blossomed into a ranking contender for the vacant heavyweight title. f "All we had when I began fighting as an amateur was PREMIUM QUALITY 4 IVaWJi ft ill ATTENTION!

When I got into the pros I was puj. in with the best middleweight in 10-round fights right away, but I'd never gone more than three rounds before. I never really got a break until Angelo Dundee took me over about two years ago." Dundee, the. former trainer of Cassius Clay, used Ellis as a sparring partner for the deposed world champion. Ellis first got into the heavy-weigt rankings with 'a one-round knockout of Jimmy Persol in a preliminary to Clay's defence against Zora Folley at Madison. Square Garden.

Eckert in New York Tuesday, the Athletics and Finley came to a mutual agreement in the feud. The players agreed to withdraw their unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board and Finley said he would not take any more action against the players as a consequence of the dispute.
