4C · NorrhWMt Arkansas TIMES, Sun., Oct. 20, 1974 rAVETTEVILLI, AMKAHf At All Charges Foreman With Fake Injury KINSHASA, Zaire (AP) -Muhammad All charged Saturday night that world heavyweight champion George Foreman's eye injury was a fake aimed at buying lime to hide his poor physical condition. Ali said in an interview that it "seems entirely probable to me that they faked the whole thing because they knew George was too fat and out a! shape to fight me on Sept. 25." ; Foreman's was cut above the right eye Sept. 16 and the work heavyweight championship was postponed until Oct.30. Foreman was cut above the called Ali's charges absurd The accusation appeared com pletely groundless to two Asso ciated Press reporters who wit nessed the injury at N'Sele training center. Ali repeated several times his contention that the cut was faked when a reporter assertei that it seemed unlikely. STRANGE THINGS " I wasn't there, of course anrt I didn't see it but just toi many things are strange," he said. " They never used stitches-to close the thing." Ali said. "Ev-! ery doctor knows that that's the best way to do it. Then nobody ever saw the cut from the time it happened supposedly till the day they took the bandages o f f . When they did take the bandages off it didn't look like there had been a thing, it was so clean." Ali said he thought some kind of makeup--"the kind wrestlers use to make you think they are bleeding"--was employed to give the appearance of a gash. "After all, who did this benefit? Only Foreman," he said, "He knew I was in the best shape of my life and that he was fat.. He's in one per cent better condition now, nice and lean and ready to go. I made good use of time too. but he needed the extra time and they went and got it." CALLS IT A FAKE Asked again--it was the third time--if he did not want to pick another word than fake to describe the injury, Ali replied "You can say I said it was a fake." When told about Ali's accusation, Bill McMurray, the sparring partner who was In the ring when Foreman was injured, broke out laughing "I saw the blood," he said Cuts don't get realer than that. If you would have seen my face and known how bad I felt about cutting .George then you would say it wasn't kidding." Dick Sadler, Foreman's manager, told a reporter earlier in the week that Foreman would have been in lop condition for the fight had it taken place on the originally scheduled date and that his lean, sharp appearance now meant that Sadler might have to "blubber him up a bit before Oct. 30 so Foreman wouldn't be over trained.
