Judge Bruce A. Markell of the Las Vegas District Court yesterday rejected a contract by promoter Don King and validated one by Bob Arum with World Boxing Council champion Hasim Rahman, in a decision the fighter's promoter, Steve Nelson, called "a total victory." The move allows Rahman to "maximize Rock's potential financially in the ring," Nelson said. "The judge recognized that we have always had problems with Don King and now we can move forward under Bob Arum, whom we believe will help us to do that."

Tom Zbikowski sported white trunks with purple trim at his most recent fight, an obvious nod to the Ravens. His ring entrance music came from a local rapper. Zbikowski certainly brought Baltimore to Atlantic City, N.J., where he won a hard-fought unanimous decision over Caleb Grummet on Saturday night. So, when will the Ravens safety bring one of his professional boxing matches to Baltimore? "I'm trying to," Zbikowski said after he improved his record to 3-0. "I'll do whatever I can to get a fight there.

A sprained right knee, suffered during a sparring session Thursday night, has forced World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko to pull out of yet a fourth scheduled defense against former champion and Baltimore native Hasim Rahman, promoter Bob Arum said yesterday. Klitschko (35-2, 34 knockouts), who has not fought since December of last year, twisted the knee during the sparring session in Los Angeles, but was deemed fit to fight yesterday after a one-hour examination by orthopoedic surgeon Tony Daly of the Los Angeles Sports Medicine Clinic.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- "A faithful witness, someone'll stick with you when you need them . . . There are always people sneaking up behind you, hugging your pocket."Thus saith the Rev. George Foreman yesterday, preaching at the Shiloh Baptist Church.It was a sermon by the mount who will challenge Evander Holyfield for the heavyweight championship Friday night in the other Atlantic City. Maybe it was a shill -- getting the 42-year-old minister to Shiloh, a two-story brick building with peeling paint on a block of desolation -- a chance to get a few live minutes of ESPN time and make a few pay-per-view sales.

The "Golden Boy" turned "Macho Man," and Oscar De La Hoya left the Thomas & Mack Arena late Friday night with the most satisfying victory of his meteoric ring career.Derided by some Mexican fans for preferring stylish boxing over brawling, the World Boxing Council welterweight champion proved he could slug with the best by forcing Julio Cesar Chavez to quit on his stool after eight electrifying rounds.Watching their once-invincible fighter spitting blood from a deep cut inside his mouth, Chavez's corner men tossed in the towel.

NEW YORK -- No one ever accused Larry Holmes of being a sentimental old fool, and that wasn't a vocal reminder yesterday on the phone of the warmth of the good old days.Don King, he said, is "an evil bleeper-bleeper." He reminded us that he always said Mike Tyson would wind up back in jail "and broke, too." Evander Holyfield, he said, "is not the fighter people think he is."Yeah, but what do you really think, Larry?"Boxing stinks."It's rougher now that he can't move the way he used to and has to stand in front of opponents and take punches.

NEW YORK -- Who said vaudeville is dead?Fat and jolly George Foreman, using heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield as his straight man, raised slapstick to an art form yesterday, as the ballyhoo began for their title fight in Atlantic City, N.J., April 19.The championship match, which will have no fewer than three promoters beating the publicity drums -- Donald Trump, Main Events Inc. (Dan Duva) and Top Rank Inc. (Bob Arum) -- has been billed as "The Battle of the Ages."The slogan more accurately reflects the discrepancy in the fighters' birth certificates than the promise of a memorable match.

What Manny Pacquiao most effectively accomplished in his punching-bag treatment of Joshua Clottey on Saturday night was to keep the intrigue of a future showdown with unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr. as topic No. 1 in the boxing world. But important people around that possible mega-event continue to send troubling signals that cast uncertainty about whether the bout will ever happen. Mayweather isn't taking questions about Pacquiao, making that clear at a recent Los Angeles news conference in which his people even steered him away from Filipino reporters.
