LAS VEGAS - When undisputed middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins stares across the ring at Jermain Taylor tonight, he said he won't just see the face of the young, former Olympian, but also that of Lou DiBella. DiBella, once Hopkins' promoter, now is serving the same role for Taylor. The acrimonious separation of Hopkins and DiBella ended with the latter winning a $610,000 libel suit, a settlement Hopkins said will make Taylor "a whipping boy for my controlled frustrations." Hopkins has appealed the decision.

LOS ANGELES — It was more than three hours before the main event at Staples Center, and Dewey Bozella produced the most uplifting moment of the night. The sole spotlight was to be on Bernard Hopkins, who later unsuccessfully defended his world light-heavyweight title against Chad Dawson in a controversial technical knockout. Hopkins' journey as the oldest fighter to win a title, at age 46 supplanting George Foreman by winning in Montreal on May21, was to be the big headline. But the promoters also liked the Bozella storyline — who wouldn't?

LAS VEGAS - Seabrook, Md., middleweight William Joppy's no-nonsense approach to boxing is devoid of gimmicks. Unlike Fernando Vargas, there is no "Ferocious," before his name. No "Executioner," like Bernard Hopkins. Yet his handlers say he is, in boxing, what James Brown was to show business, and that, just like Rodney Dangerfield, all Joppy wants is respect. "Joppy's the hardest working man in the sport," said Stan Hoffman, co-manager with Steve Nelson of the World Boxing Association champ.

Former heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman said yesterday that he is looking for a comeback fight against Evander Holyfield this spring and that he has been training for the last two weeks in a Philadelphia gymnasium under Bouie Fisher. Fisher has been with Bernard Hopkins throughout that fighter's career, including his 12th-round knockout of Felix Trinidad for the undisputed middleweight championship in September. "A while back, Bouie Fisher said some nice things about me in Ring Magazine, said what he could do with me as a fighter, and I've always admired his strategy and what he's done with Bernard Hopkins," said Rahman.

Olympic gold medalist Andre Ward said last night that he has signed a professional contract with James Prince for an unspecified bonus at the manager's home in Houston. Ward, a deeply religious 20-year-old from Oakland Calif., defeated Magomed Aripgadjiev of Belarus, 20-13, in their light heavyweight bout in Athens last weekend. Ward had been in Houston since Monday with Prince. Last night's meeting lasted an hour before Ward signed, "but the decision was made a long time ago," said the fighter, whom Prince said he has been pursuing "for about three years."

For the nearly 20 months since losing to Bernard Hopkins, Oscar De La Hoya has enjoyed the life of a man whose ring earnings have surpassed $100 million. Teaming with Hopkins, the former eight-belt world champion has launched Golden Boy Promotions, enlisting names such as Marco Antonio Barrera and Shane Mosley into the stable of fighters he now promotes. And with his wife, Millie, a former Puerto Rican singer, De La Hoya has a 4-month-old son. "Life has been awesome," De La Hoya told Jay Leno during a Monday interview on The Tonight Show, when he also shared that his son kept him up "for all but two hours" the night before, that changing dirty diapers can be a hassle, and that Millie's shedding of ringside tears at tense moments "can be a distraction."

Trying to write this week's sports media notes while our new kitten keeps walking across the keyboard, annoying me because what she's typing is better than anything I come up with: * There has been some fascinating buzz around the Brett Favre-Detroit Lions story this week. In the wake of Sunday's report by Fox's Jay Glazer that Favre volunteered to spill a caseload of beans about the Green Bay Packers' offense just before his former team played the Lions, we heard a via-text denial on NBC that night as passed through Sports Illustrated's Peter King.

In a Philadelphia recreation center last August, undisputed middleweight world champion Bernard Hopkins reminisced while reading a story about him first winning the title in Landover on April 29, 1995. The story recalled former world champs Joe Frazier and Michael Spinks leading Hopkins into the ring at USAir Arena before he knocked out Segundo Mercado for the International Boxing Federation crown. Tonight, he'll try to defend his title for the 20th consecutive time, at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

LAS VEGAS - Undisputed middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins leaped onto the ring ropes, then did a goofy forward roll on the ring floor - even as Oscar De La Hoya flopped around on the canvas gasping for air like a goldfish out of his bowl from Hopkins' piercing left hook to the liver. De La Hoya failed to beat the 10 count of referee Kenny Bayless, giving Hopkins a ninth-round knockout Saturday night at the MGM Grand over a man who never before had been stopped in a bout. "It just paralyzes you," said De La Hoya, 31. "You can't do anything about it. You lose your breath.

LAS VEGAS - Oscar De La Hoya can expect the biggest payday of his career for tomorrow night's fight against Bernard Hopkins, but De La Hoya already is wealthy. What De La Hoya really wants is to enrich his legacy. He sees the fight as a means of silencing critics who are skeptical of his heart, his stamina and his place among boxing's all-time greats. "It doesn't get any bigger than this - fighting for the undisputed middleweight crown against the best fighter out there who hasn't lost in [11]

Late fight: Last night's middleweight title bout between Oscar De La Hoya and Bernard Hopkins ended too late to be included in this edition. A complete report can be found in later editions or on the Internet at www.baltimoresun.com. LAS VEGAS - Oscar De La Hoya still was scheduled to fight Bernard Hopkins last night, despite an incident Wednesday night in which a trainer's scissors gouged a cut just above the palm of De La Hoya's oft-injured left hand following a workout. The injury, initially reported by the Las Vegas Review Journal yesterday, was made known to Nevada Athletic Commission chairman Marc Ratner following Friday's weigh-in at the MGM Grand Arena because De La Hoya is taking pain killers that might appear in his post-fight urinalysis.

LAS VEGAS - Sugar Ray Leonard emerged from a three-year retirement to dethrone undisputed middleweight champion Marvelous Marvin Hagler in 1987 by tying up and frustrating Hagler as well as flurrying punches to steal rounds and win fans and ringside judges. Leonard and experts such as Bert Sugar believe Oscar De La Hoya (37-3, 29 knockouts) can use a similar strategy to achieve as monumental an upset over Bernard Hopkins (44-2-1, 31 KOs) tonight before an expected sellout at the MGM Grand's 17,005-seat arena.
