"WE COVER YOUR WOOD FOR GOOD" . 7124 W. 16th St. Berwyn, III. 788-2606 "New Morning" By John Griffin So much has already been said about the "Fight of the Century" that I don't see why I shouldn't add to it. I saw the fight on closed circuit TV at the Lake Theater. I was fortunate enough to get my ticket for free, due to a small chain of events. The fight was due to start at 9:30 p.m. Chicago time, but there were people waiting outside two hours before that. My friend and I already had our tickets' so we didn't have to wait. The Oak Park police were smart to have a squad car standing out in front of the Theater because many people would have tried to scalp their tickets. I was tempted to scalp mine but I had waited too long to see this fight. The place was totally packed by 8:45. At 9:10, a pre-flght show of other fights of Frazier's and All's as well as old films of many other boxers of the past was broadcast. It was quite good but the sound was bad and the picture was dull. Then the two opponents came Into the ring. Ali first and Frazler second. Both the people at Madison Square Garden and at the Lake Theater showed their partisanship when this happened. It was about half for Frazier and half for All. The fighters put on a little show while warming up with one bumping in to the other to satisfy the crowd. The first round started with Ali doing what he always did, jabbing with his left to keep his opponent away. Frazier kept bobbing and weaving to keep away from the jabs. It was evident that All just wasn't ready for this fight. Had Ali connected on even half of the punches he missed, Frazier'would have been decked in the eighth round. The difference for Frazier was made when he decided to stick to his game plan of staying in real close to Ali. Ali started to fall against the ropes in about the third or fourth round Instead of using his longer reach to keep Frazier away, All would back up into a corner and attempt to slug it out with Frazier in close He wanted to prove that he could take the tough punches.'I believed him until the last round when Frazier put Ali down on a strong left hook Frazier would have won anyway as it was pretty clear that he was ahead of Ali on points. Ali showed a spurt of strength and quickness in the 14th round when he went back to his old tactics of using the left Jab to set up his right. Joe Frazier deserved the decision, no matter what Ali says, but if there's a. rematch and Ali trains as hard as he says he will I'd put my money on the challenger.
