Ron Morris takes feature
The Windsor Amateur Boxing Club won seven of 11 bouts in a card before 500 fans at Kennedy collegiate Saturday night. WABC headliner Ron Morris won the main event, pounding out a unanimous decision over Larry Wilson of Detroit. Morris gave a masterful display of boxing, winning all three rounds from the hard punching Wilson.
Windsor’s Don Zimmerman took the other feature match, outslugging Chatham’s Gary Brown. Zimmerman had Brown in trouble late in the third round but the bell saved the latter from going down.
Sarnia’s Tim Taylor also made a big hit with the Windsor fans, winning a three round decision over Detroit’s Dave Braxton. Taylor had Braxton hanging on in the third round, repeatedly with left hook right cross combinations.
Other victories registered by WABC boxers were: Bill Voinaroski over club-mate Gilles Lajoie, Larry Anderson over Chatham’s Jim Townsley, Jim Cameron over Ed Harwood of Detroit, Bud Lishenko over Rodney Seymour of Detroit and Lou Couvillion over club-mate Passalacqua.
Two WABC fighters were losers.. Danny Talbot to Terry Pryor of Chatham and Mark Wilson to Fred Hatcher of Detroit. In another bout, Jacques Langlois of Leamington outpointed Randy Goins of Monroe.
The only sour note of the night was the failure of Monroe’s Sailor Henniger to show as an opponent for young WABC luminary Peter Renschke. Promoter Jerry McCarthy was unable to find a replacement and Reschke sat idle.
[info_box]Q: How successful are organ transplant operations? A: Receiving a transplant can literally save or dramatically improve a seriously ill person’s quality of life. Advances in surgical skills and better drugs mean that a year after surgery 93% of kidneys in living donor transplants, 88% of kidneys from people who have died, 87% of organs in liver transplants and 85% of organs in heart transplants are still functioning well. These figures are improving all the time.[/info_box] [ztop] [savelives_box]
