Quarry in need of 'big'win By ROBERT LIPSYTE New York Times Service NEW YORK - Jerry Quarry came out of the West in 1966 to take his rightful place in the promising batch oi young heavyweights that included Joe Prazier, Buster Mathis, Tony Alongi, Tony Doyle, Jim Woody and some forgotten. He already had fought a draw with Doyle and in the next four years he would fail to win every fight he "had" to win: two draws with Alongi, a draw with Floyd Patterson followed by an unpopular victory, a loss to Jimmy Ellis for the World Boxing Association title, a knockout by Frazier for the New York State-plus title and a knock-out, last December, by George Chuvalo. Quarry, who is only 25, kept getting fights, moving up in class, because he was eminently promotable — clever, good-looking enough for some television acting parts, white, Irish, the second of eight children of a hard-scrabble JTex- an who found his way to California. The Chuvalo fight, however, turned Quarry around in the minds of fight people. Chuvalo had become an "opponent," a man to climb over on the way up, and Quarry was supposed to halt his own backward slide on the Canadian's rocky chin. But Chuvalo's big victory suddenly made Quarry a temporary opponent, too, a prospective Chuvalo the younger. And so, Quarry was booked into Madison Square Garden last night to check!out Mac Foster, who also ijad come out of the West. Foster is 28, but he spent six years in the Marines, some of it in Vietnam. Winner by knockout in his first 24 fights, thoughtful, exuding a strength and sincerity, Foster is eminently promotable, too. The message seemed clear: if Quarry won big, he might get another shot at Frazier; if Foster won convincingly, he would be the new boy in town. Lake all major prize fights, this one was anticipated on two levels — the pleasure of watching the fighters perform, and the speculation of how the outcome would affect the division. At the weigh-in yesterday, promoters and managers were sparring with the shadows of two men who weren't there — Frazier and Muhammad Ali. Frazier, generally treated now as the world heavyweight champion, apparently is recovered from a dancing injury in which he broke a small bone in his foot. Frazier has embarked enthusiastically on a show business career. Ali, champion in exile for three years, may be affected favorably by the recent ruling by the Supreme Court that draft registrants are entitled to conscientious objector status based on "deeply felt" moral or ethical beliefs outside accepted religious groups. Ali's lawyers base their high hopes on thjeir assertion that Ali's antiwar feelings were accepted, but not his contention that the nation of Islam (Black Muslims) is a religious group. The new ruling would make the status of the group irrelevant, and his own beliefs the deciding factor. There are two important threads of litigation involving Ali. The long-term case, now complicated by rulings on evidence that may have been gathered by wire-tap, is at the appellate level. But of more immediate concern to boxing people is a bail application now pending before the Supreme Court. Ali has been refused permission to leave the country under terms of his bond. His lawyers want him allowed to leave for a day or so, enough time to fight Frazier in Toronto, perhaps in September. They do not feel he can be successfully booked in this country because of "political" pressures. Frazier's apparent readiness to fight, and Ali's possible reappearance gave an added edge to the Foster- Quarry fight. At the weigh-in yesterday Foster's manager, Pat DiFuria of.Fresno, sniffled with an air-conditioning cold and said: "1 can't let niysfcjf' ;,hi:aij; wt-'vt: MAIL BULLDOG Phwnfc,niirt.,Jiniel8,1970 The Arizona Republic 9?- '"' Available at Sears Phoenix, Scottsdale and Mesa HERE'S PROOF of Sears Tire Values Sears ALLSTATE Passenger Tire Guarantee Tread Life Guarantee Tread Wear-Out Guarantee Guaranteed Againit: Tread wear-out.
