MONDAY, JUNE 3, 19G3 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE Ex-Champion Wants Rematch With Willie By BOB MYERS Associated Press Snorts Writer LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP)—Hollering he was robbed, Pat Olivier! manager of Harold Johnson, today demanded a rematch for his de throned light heavyweight champion with Willie Pastrano. Driver Coasts Last Lap To Win Stock Car Race CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A blown tire and an empty gas tank figured in the last minute heroics here Sunday as Fred Lotenzen won the World 600 stock car race at a record 132.417 miles per hour. Lorenzen, 29-year-old ex-carpenter from Elmhurst, 111., came home free when Junior Johnson, the leader and pace-seller, blew a tire with slightly over three laps to go.

But the handsome, curly- haired veteran found himself in trouble, too. His fuel gauge registered empty. "I wiggled her back and fourth to slosh more gas into the line," said the happy Lorenzen later. "I managed to make lap No. 399 with power, but I simply threw her out of gear and coasted the last lap." The victory over the 1% mile high-banked Charlotte Motor Speedway, which packed an estimated 60,000 into its sunlit environs, was worth $27,780 to the virons, was worth $27,780 to the Ford-driving Lorenzen.

The fight was nationally televised from the Las Vegas Con vention Center. "I'm not saying that the underworld dictated the decision," said the silver-haired Olivieri. "But the betting was 5-1 and 6-1 for my boy and they let the underdog win. What do you think?" There was no verbal or written rematch agreement, Pastrano's manager, Angelo Dundee, said. Olivieri said he would ask Emile Bruneau, chairman of the World Boxing Association championship committee, to give Johnson a rematch with 90 days. Referee Jimmy Olivas scored the fight 69-68 and judge Harry Kraufe 69-67, both for Pastrano. Judge John Romero had it 69-68 for Johnson. The Associated Press had it 70-69 for Pastrano. It was 7-5 that Pastrano wouldn't last the route against the 34-year-old champion from Philadelphia who had not been whipped in almost eight years. But Pastrano outboxed and outfoxed Johnson in a fight that was far better than many anticipated. There were no knockdowns, but Johnson nailed Willie with right smashes in the fifth and 13th rounds that made his knees sag. Johnson received $37,000 and Pastrano $21,250, the largest pure of his 13-year career. Pastrano weighed 174, Johnson 173%. Kutis of St. Louis Wins Soccor Title ST.
