Heavyweight Card at Country Club

Orlin Norris, a former North American Boxing Federation champion, headlines a six-fight, all-heavyweight card Tuesday night at the Country Club in Reseda. Norris will meet once-beaten Tony Williams of Chicago in a scheduled 10-round bout.

Norris is 26-2. Willis, a former light heavyweight, is 19-1 with 15 knockouts.

Also fighting a scheduled 10-rounder are Jimmy Ellis of Redondo Beach and Greg Gorrell of Wichita, Kan. Ellis, 13-0 with 12 knockouts, is managed by the Los Angeles Raiders’ Howie Long. Gorrell fought Norris three months ago and put him down in the seventh round, but Norris stopped Gorrell (23-10) two rounds later.

Rocky Pepeli (8-2) of Burbank, who had to get off the canvas in his most recent fight at the Country Club before coming back to score a knockout, is also on the card. He will fight Glen Sagen of Bakersfield, who will make his pro debut in a scheduled four-rounder.
