P «31033 STATE FARM Life Insurance Company *>•• Officii liKolnitM, UUwis Holly Mims, Griffith in Non-Title Go SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Y., (UPI) — Welterweight champion Emile Griffith risks prestige but not title tonight here in a nationally televised fight with middleweight contender Holly Mims at Convention Hall. Their non-title 10-rounder is a highlight of the Saratoga thoroughbred racing centennial celebration and will be sent on television by ABC at 10 p.m. (EDT). A crowd of 5,000 and gate of $25,000 are expected for Griffith's first ring appearance since his unprecedented third capture of the 147-pound crown from Luis Rodriguez at Madison ' Square Garden, June 8. Because of his youth, speed and punch, 25-year-old Griffith of New York is favored at 4-1 over his heavier 34-year-old opponent from Washington, D.C. Nevertheless, Mims — the World Boxing Association's eighth ranking middleweight (160-pound) contender — has the cunning and durability to cause Griffith a very uncomfortable evening. Middleweight contender Rubin (Hurricane) Carter of Paterson, N.J., can attest to that; for, on Dec. 22 at Madison Square Garden, Mims accepted a fight with Carter on six hours notice and then not only gave Hurricane a terrific fight but had him on the floor in the fourth round. Carter managed to win the de cision that night but he lost an ocean of prestige.
