Expect big Texas yes Lance Pugmire Los Angeles Times The California State Athletic Commission clearly felt the pressure to continue its hard line against Antonio Margarito, as a state attorney reinforced the point that the boxing world was watching this case for precedent's sake. The commission's thinking was you can't reward a guy who was capable of seriously injuring a fighter in a world-title bout with an even richer payday. However, Texas doesn't have such concerns.

A 44-year-old fighter sat on top of a cage with his arms in the air and a smile on his face. Moments earlier, he was looking down at his opponent, who had fallen limp to the ground after taking a punch straight to the head. James "Binky" Jones had to make sure that Biff Walizer, his opponent that October 2013 day in Shogun Fights IX, was done for good. He stared for a couple more seconds, then threw his arms up and ran to climb the cage and flex for his fans. "The Lord has blessed me, man," Jones, of Baltimore, said Thursday.

Money always wins out Lance Pugmire Los Angeles Times This is an unknown for now, requiring the ability to read a mind. The mind needing to be read is Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s, a skill that borders on impossible even for those close to the unbeaten boxer. For now, we've been told Mayweather Jr. is in vacation mode, enjoying the lifestyle he earned by pummeling Shane Mosley on May 1 and earning $25 million, which we hear he is happily spending. Of course, the money that Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will generate by fighting each other will one day prove impossible to reject.

On a frigid Thursday morning in late January, Emanuel Taylor was swinging at shadows in the ring at Charm City Boxing, headquartered in a warehouse tucked away in an industrial park in White Marsh. As he got his morning workout in - he would return that evening for another - big black-and-white photos of boxing greats such as Mike Tyson, Sugar Ray Robinson and Muhammad Ali eyeballed him. With the temperature in the teens, a few men with connections to Taylor or the Baltimore boxing scene huddled around a space heater and chatted as the speed and intensity of Taylor's punches picked up. Everyone in the gym seemed to have a story to share about how they or someone close to them could have been something special.

On Saturday, Rosanna Garcia and Gabrielle Holloway will face off at Baltimore's 1st Mariner Arena , as the co-main event on the card - an event that could open doors for women in the sport and ultimately allow for more female professional fights locally.

For the second time in three days, accumulating snow took local forecasters by surprise Wednesday, covering pavement, snarling traffic and delaying flights. Forecasts had called for mostly cold rain both Monday and Wednesday, but air more frigid than expected meant heavy snow at times both days, particularly in areas north and west of Baltimore.

"He's definitely still with us, because every day when we're working out or when we're on the field, we can hear him in our heads just saying, 'Make every day count' and 'Never give up,' because we don't know what day is going to be our last day. We try to work hard and it gives me a big lift knowing he's still with us through everything I do," Abey said.

N o matter how much Sylvester Stallone has tried, some things in boxing you just can't make up. It was enough late Saturday night that a 27-year-old man from Southeast Washington, homeless before a boxing trainer took in him and his little brother when the boy was 10, rocked the fight world by winning his first major world title over the prohibitive favorite. But when the HBO ring announcer, Michael Buffer, hollered the words, "And … NEW SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD … " and Lamont Peterson smudged his joyful tears against the arms of Barry Hunter and his handlers — and Amir Khan shook his head in disgust after the sport's umpteenth controversial decision — the night was just beginning for the combatants.
