What now? -- Baltimore middleweights Jesse Niklow and Davon Gross meet in the main event of a 12-bout card. Tickets are $25. For information, call the Brooklyn Boxing Club at 410-354-9360.

When -- Tonight, 9

What now? -- The Chesapeake Fencing Club and the House of Mercy sponsor the charitable 12-hour, all-night festival. Fencers of all ages and abilities are welcome.

It has exactly what those old-fashioned dance-a-thons were missing - epees and foils.

Walking

Walk for Diabetes

Where -- M&T Bank Stadium

When -- Tomorrow, 9 a.m. (check-in at 8 a.m.)

What now? -- If you're still standing after fencing all night, or even if you went to bed early, the American Diabetes Association sponsors a 5K walk that begins and ends at Stadium Lot C. Afterward, there's a Health and Fitness Festival. Registration is free but required - call 888-DIABETES, ext. 4670, or visit the Web site. Best of all, free parking is available at Lot B. Any time you can park at the stadium for free, you should take advantage.

Hockey

Hurricanes@Caps

Where -- MCI Center, Washington

When -- Tomorrow, 7 p.m.

What now? -- Washington's Southeast Division showdown with Carolina is the Capitals' last home game before they go on the road for four straight. If you were counting on seeing the game end in a shootout, Washington will have to pick up its scoring, because entering last night, the Capitals had allowed more goals than any team in the league. Tickets start as low as $10 and are available on the team's Web site.

Pro football

49ers@Redskins

Where -- FedEx Field, Landover

When -- Sunday, 1 p.m.

What now? -- Former Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Nolan brings his 49ers to Washington. Tickets were available all over the Internet yesterday. At ticketliquidator.com, tickets started at $102.

Factor in parking and transportation and that $10 Capitals game is starting to sound better and better.
