Reading Time: Two Minutes.Yes, advice is easy to dispense, but this qualifies as more of a plea: Former Olympic gold medalist Andrew Maynard of Laurel should find another line of work outside the boxing ring. Drew went against the USBA cruiserweight champion Sergei Kobozev in Miami Beach Saturday night and was hammered in every round before the fight was stopped in the 10th. The three judges scored every round for the victor. It has been this way too many times now.* Just about everyone admits tennis is in a down period or an out-and-out drag, but they're talking about a half-million people showing up for the two-week U.S. Open under way today (USA Network, 11 a.m.)

Notre Dame doesn't buy lacrosse success I am very upset after reading Mike Preston's column published in the May 22 edition of The Sun. In particular, I have to disagree with the following portion: "As for Notre Dame, it was kind of strange hearing the band playing the school's fight song at a lacrosse game. "But with the athletic department revenues and other features of the school, the Fighting Irish showed you can almost buy a championship in any sport. "If you're a high school recruit and you visit Notre Dame or Johns Hopkins during the fall, would you be more inclined to enroll at Notre Dame after watching a football game against USC or watching Hopkins tangle with Western Maryland?"

Unbeaten heavyweight Riddick Bowe picked up the nickname "Big Daddy" some time back and yesterday at a weigh-in for a boxing show at the Washington Convention Center tonight (7:30), onlookers saw the reason why. Bowe checked in at 277 pounds for his 12-rounder against Elijah Tillery (23-4).There was a bit of chicanery going on however,because Bowe weighed in with his clothes on and according to some sources,wearing a weighted vest. Even so,said one guy in the know,Bowe probably will come in around 240.The co-features on the card are Andrew Maynard (17-1)

After his manager, Rock Newman, held talks last week about a possible title match against heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield and a multimillion-dollar bout against Mike Tyson, why is unbeaten contender Riddick Bowe fighting former sparring partner Elijah Tillery in the main event (USA Cable, 8 o'clock) at the Washington Convention Center tonight?"A young heavyweight like Riddick has to stay busy if he is going to continue to progress as a fighter," said his trainer, Eddie Futch, who helped guide Ken Norton, Joe Frazier and Michael Spinks to world titles.

Reading time, two minutes:One of the features of the Washington Capitals' home game against Vancouver last Friday was defenseman Al Iafrate's hat trick of penalties (cross-checking, interference, holding) followed by a game misconduct and ejection. And then he ended up being named the No. 1 star of the 3-3 tie. The Caps, 3-3-3 the last three weeks (talk about a rut), host the North Stars tonight.* Andrew Maynard is a solid 8-to-5 favorite in his NABF light-heavyweight title bout against former Olympic gold medalist Frank Tate in the Paramount at Madison Square Garden Friday.

LAS VEGAS -- Since challenger Evander Holyfield opened in the betting parlors as a 2-1 favorite three months ago, most of the money has been wagered on heavyweight champion James "Buster" Douglas. By fight time tonight, it figures to be a pick-'em affair."I call it the 'Sylvester Stallone Syndrome,' said Russ Culver, who runs the sports book at The Mirage, site of the fight. "It's Hollywood's influence. People have seen so many 'Rocky' movies that they root for the underdog and bet with their heart.

Reading time, two minutes:Poor Don Buford. When it was announced Monday that Miami and Denver would in all likelihood be getting National League expansion teams, thoughts jumped back 20 years and spring training with the Orioles. Buford, employed in the O's minor-league operation now but the leftfielder then, came by the information that the Miami franchise in the Florida State League was for sale. He was all for buying. His fellow players scoffed at the idea and "Buf" backed down. Just think if he had gotten into the ownership end of baseball and endured, something he was expert at, what great position he'd be in today.
