INGLEWOOD, CALIF. (UPI)—P'ormer heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali wiped out the stain of a broken jaw and an upset loss to Ken Norton 5'/2 months ago by scoring a split decision over the former Marine Mu.scleman in a 12-round rematch Monday night to put him.self right hack into the title picture. A 5-2 favorite, Ali, 212, was the winner on points 7-5 on referee Dick Young's card and 6-5 on the card of judge John Thomas. Judge George Latka voted for Norton 6-5. Under California's simplified five-point must system, UPI had Ali the winner 9-2. A disappointing crowd of 10,500, which paid a gross gate of ,$525,000, .saw Ali avenge one of the only two losses in his career —a split decision up.set at the fists of Norton, then a 5-1 underdog, at San Diego last March 31. On Thomas' pivitol card, Ali won the 12th round and the fight by getting back on his toes again after appearing dead-tired in the middle rounds. Instead, it was Norton, 205, who looked the worse for wear as the former Cassius Clay opened with a flurry of lefts and rights to the head. Ali, who had pronounced himself in shape "for the first time in my life," thus put himself in line for a crack at new heavyweight champion George Foreman, probably sometime next year since Foreman tentatively is scheduled to face Jerry Quarry, the No. 4 contender, in November. Ali appeared to have won the fight more easily than the official verdict had it. On the UPI card, the former champion won the first six rounds, resembling the Ali of old who knocked out Sonny Liston for the heavyweight title almost a Rips Cubs CHICAGO (UPI) —The Pittsburgh Pirates combined 21 hits with Jim Rooker's seven-hit pitching Monday to humiliate the Chicago Cubs, 11-3, and move within one half game of first place St. Louis in the National League East Division. Rich Zisk and Willie Stargell highlighted the Pirates' attack, which equalled the team's highest hit output of the season. Zisk went 5-for-6 while Stargell had a perfect 4-for-4, scored three times and batted in two runs. Bob Robertson had three hits and Manny Sanguillen, Rennie Stennett, Richie Hebner and Al Oliver two each for Pittsburgh. 0 0- 0 S-28 Hiland Park 0 0 Cedar Grove 8 6 C G Ricky Bozeman 27 run (Robert Gay run) CO Bozeman 1 run (run failed) C G Patrick Sergeant 3 pass from Stanley Foran CG (Foran run) Johnathan Jackson 20 run (run failed) Oakland Terrace 0 0 6 0-6 Callaway 8 8 0 14—30 Call — Donnie Thomas 1 run (William Faust pass from Thomas) Call — Daryl Harris 6 run (Darryl Williams run) 0 T — Willie Davenport 49 run (run failed) Call — Charlie Caswell 7 pass from Thomas (pass failed) Call — Thomas 30 run (Caswell pass from Thomas) GRANTS LASSIFIEDl ADS 3.

Neither fighter appiiarod to bo in .seriou.s troiil)lo although each wa.s .shal<cn up sovoraj times. It was a matter of Ali, who weighefi nine pounds less than he did for the first fight witli Norton, staying on his toes longer and staying away from the ever-pre.ssing Norton. Norton, of Car.son, Calif., had his best rounds in the seventh and eighth when Ali looked like he was running out of gas. In the .seventh, Norton pounded a looping right hand to the ex- titleholder's jaw and in the eighth he banged his older opponent with a .series of left hooks and right hands. But Ali, a dancing ma.ster in the first six rounds, came alive again in the ninth as Norton began to wilt. All's best punches of the round were two long overhand rights as the fighters stood toe-to-toe and slugged it out. In the 10th, Ali opened a small cut under Norton's left eye and won the round even though the ex-marine staggered him with a right to the head, the underdog's best punch of the fight. Norton tried desperately to knock out Ali in the 11th but Ali managed to stay away to gain an even round, "Ken was the best fighter I ever fought," a very tired A)i .said. "Joe Bugner couldn't do to nic what Norton did. F'razior couldn't do it. Foreman wouldn't be able to do it. He hit me with good shots and I was almost in perfect physical shape." "I thought I won it," Norton said. "I thought I had beaten him in enough rounds. I hope to meet him a rematch." Ali was taken to a hospital to have x-rays taken of his right hand. He said he felt something "snap" in the fourth round and it .still felt weak afterwards. Ali received a $275,000 payday while Norton earned ,$200,000, $150,000 more than he got for the first Ali bout. Foreman Eyes Quarry Next INGLEWOOD, Calif. (UPI) — World heavyweight champion George Foreman's next title defense will be against Jerry Quarry in the first week of November, the champion indicated Monday night. Quarry's fourth-round knockout of Tony Doyle Monday evening apparently assured the meeting. "We should have a contract signed and sealed for the fight by the end of the week," Foreman said. "The only thing in the way now are minor difficulties." THIS ISTHE PLACE TO BE N.Y.P.D. Staring Jack Warden Robert Hooks Frank Converse 6:30 THEFURST fiAMLYOF WI^SHMGION ACOMEDYSPECIAL!
