Hope Star Page Four All to be around NEW YORK (AP) - Muhammad Ali, who has "announced" his retirement as worid heavyweight boxing champion several times, apparently will be around quite a while longer. At a news conference Thursday to promote a title bout against young Leon Spinks in Las Vegas, Nev., Feb. 15, Ali suddenly disclosed that he has signed for still another defense next September against Ken Norton, a three-time rival. The Norton fight, for which Ali reportedly will receive a whopping $12 million, will be held in a foreign country, according to Bob Arum of Top Rank, Inc., who also is promoting the Spinks bout. At the Ali-Spinks news conference, the champion was asked if he was ducking Norton. That's when he disclosed his latest plans. The contract needs only Norton's signature. Arum has deposited 1125.000 in a bank to serve as part of the purse. The money goes to Ali if Norton fails to sign by May 1. "I see no problems in getting Norton," Arum said. "I can't say that I have him, though, because I don't." Howe%-er, Ali said Norton's advisors are clamoring for another shot at the champ. "They're bent on getting me," Ali said. "But if I don't get $12 million we ain't gonna dance." Ali and Norton split a pair of non-title bouts and Ali defeated the challenger in September 1?76 in a unanimous but highly controversial decision. "He was great when I was a kid," the challenger said. at a glance AFL 13 American Football Conference Eastern Dhislon W LTPct.PFPA Bait 9 40 .692265197 Miami 9 40 .692282183 NEng 9 40 .692254187 NYJets 3100 .231191273 Buff 3100 .231146282 Central Division Cinci 8 50 .615222214 Pitts 8 50 .615273234 Hstn 7 60 .558278214 deve 6 70 .462250247 Western Division x-Denv 12 10 .923268134 y-Oakld 10 30 .765330210 SDiego 7 60 .53S213195 Stle 4 90 .398262354 K.C. 2110 .154205328 National Football Conference Eastern Division x-Dailas 11 20 .846331206 Wash 8 50 .615179175 SLou 7 60 .53S285270 N'YGts 5 80 .385172253 Phila 4 90 .308183207 Central Division Minn 8 50 .615201206 Qicgo 8 50 .615243244 Dirt 6 70 .462162222 GnBay 3100 .231118205 TpaBay H20 .077 86216 Western Division X-L.A, 10 30 -7692SS129 Atlnta 6 70 .462144122 SFran 5 80 .385206244 NOrlns 3100 .231225301 x-cUnched division title. y<lincbed wild card playoff berth Saturday's Games lx«s Angeles at Washington, >.CBS> Buffalo at Miami, • NBCi Minnesota at Detroit, >r..> i ABO Sunday's Games Chicago at New York Giants New Orleans at Atlanta New York Jets at Philadelphia St. Loiiis at Tampa Bay San Francs&ro vs. Green Bay a*.

Cincinnatti by six By BRUCE LOWTIT AP Sports Writer By Sunday afternoon, a caiple cf teams around the National Football League may be wishing they were anywhere but on a football field — and they'll vent their frustration on the teams stuck out there with them. In other words: —The Pitts-burgh Steelers, knowing the Cincinnati Bengals have clinched the American Conference Central Division title, wifl take it out on the San Diego Chargers, —The New England Patriots, knowing that Miami has eliminated them from the AFC East race, will turn the tables and beat up on Baltimore, thus keeping the Colts out of the playoffs and giving the Dolphins the crown. And in half a dozen or so other cities around the nation, the NFL season will come to an end virtually unnoticed Last week's record was a less-than-sparkling 7-7, putting the record at 124-58 for a .681 percentage.
