    Background: World boxing association heavyweight champion Ernie Terrell defends his title Monday, November 1st, 1965, against Canadian champion George Chuvalo in a 15-round bount at Toronto's Maple leaf Garden's.

    Terrell has been training at the Queen's City Athletic and Youth Club in downtown Toronto. Chuvalo winds up his training Saturday at the Huntington Gold Club in nearby Woodbridge, Ontario.

    Both fighters passed their medical Tuesday at the Gardens but were fined $200 each for being twenty-minutes late by Ontario Athletic Commissioner. Merv Mckenzi. Weigh-in is set for noon, fightday, Monday.

    Chuvalo's trainer Theodore McWhorters says his man will rest until fight time and is in the pink condition. His hopes are high.

    Meanwhile the WBA has asked the two combatants along with suspended Champion Cassius Clay and challenger Floyd Patterson who meets Nov. 22 in Las Vegas to post $25,000 bonds each, assuring that the winners of each bout would meet within six months to end the current championship squabble and lead to an "undisputed " world champ.

    Chuvalo's manager, Irving Ungerman, and Terrell's adviser, Bernie Glickman, have agreed to post the WBA bonds.
