  • Description

    World Heavyweight Boxing Champion Muhammad Ali told in an interview on Tuesday (18 March) of the "psychology" he'll employ against Chuck Wepner when they meet in their title match next Monday (24 March) in Cleveland, Ohio.

    The trick, Ali told TVN sports reporter Charles Amundson, is to "make the fella see something he thinks he doesn't see. Make him punch, looking for openings." That way, according to the champion, Wepner will tire himself out after three or four rounds -- at which point, Ali added, it will be strictly "no contest".

    The champion had no comment during the interview on reports circulating in the United States that, if he defeats Wepner -- which he is heavily favoured to do -- he'll next put his title on the line against Britain's Joe Bugner.
