To fight again, or not to fight again?Glen Burnie boxer Chuck Sturm walked into Dr. Mark W. Preslan's office yesterday expecting a "yes" or "no" answer.The answer he got was a definite "maybe."As a professional boxer, Sturm is probably the biggest draw at Glen Burnie's La Fontaine Bleu.But because of damage to the fourth nerve in his right eye, Sturm has been "seeing double" for at least 15 months. For the last year, his battles have moved from the four corners of the ring to the four walls of doctors' offices.

Jimmy McAllister, a "dynamite" featherweight who battled Hall of Fame boxer Willie Pep to a surprising draw at the Baltimore Gardens in 1945, died yesterday at Sinai Hospital of pneumonia.Fighting nearly 100 professional bouts in the '40s, the 72-year-old Baltimore native was labeled "the uncrowned champion" by area jTC writers who admired his clever boxing style and elusive defense.The highlight of his career was the first of two fights against Mr. Pep, a Hall of Fame boxer. He had a 74-1 record, losing only to Sammy Angott, before meeting Mr. McAllister in a nontitle bout in Baltimore, Dec. 13, 1945.

Marcus Henry doesn't have to be a boxer - not with the looks of a model and his job as a computer programmer. But the Parkville resident says he's "in it for the love of the sport," which is why he swaps hours of excellent pay for trading blows during the grueling sparring sessions it takes to be an amateur boxer who travels nationwide and abroad while working toward becoming a professional world champion.

A year after his life story became a Hollywood event, former boxer Rubin Carter says the message of hope in the movie "The Hurricane" was overshadowed at times by criticism that the movie swung fast and loose with the facts. Carter said sharp scrutiny of the film was fueled primarily by journalists and lawyers upset that their minor roles in the long legal battle to overturn the triple murder convictions against himself and a young fan, John Artis, weren't portrayed on the big screen. "They did more to murder this film than they did to get John Artis and myself out of prison," said Carter, 64, who is scheduled to speak tonight at the Johns Hopkins University about inequities in the judicial system.

As an amateur boxer, safety Tom Zbikowski had more than 70 fights, but none like the one he is about to enter when the Ravens open training camp July 21. The Ravens return two starting safeties, Ed Reed and Dawan Landry, and they really like Jim Leonhard, a fourth-year free agent added during the offseason. The Ravens usually keep four on the roster, and if they had to start the season now, sixth-round draft pick Haruki Nakamura would probably beat out Zbikowski for the final spot. But, because a final decision won't be made for several months, that gives Zbikowski time to prepare.

When an emerging high-tech company is ready to leave the garage for real offices, its goals generally dwarf its budget. And start-ups, prone to explosive growth or bankruptcy, don't always know how much space they'll need tomorrow, if any. This is unnerving for both landlords - more comfortable with big security deposits and five-year commitments - and techies needing to sign a lease. And while city leaders say the commercial real estate community has done a good job making space available and courting highly desirable tech companies, landlords won't cut deals in strong economic times.

When boxer Bernard Hopkins entered the ring and took off his robe earlier this month at Madison Square Garden in New York, he showed off more than his rippled physique. Written in large letters across his back in a temporary tattoo was "Goldenpalace.com," an advertisement for an online casino that, according to Bloomberg News, is believed to be the first endorsement of its kind by a North American professional athlete. The tattoo didn't last long -- the dye ran when Hopkins started to sweat and was washed off by the third round.

TOKYO -- In a concrete and neon canyon in Japan's most famous drinking district, the boxer stands ready to become a human punching bag."Please hit me," he calls out to the crowd of gawkers that quickly forms. A one-minute all-you-can-slug session costs $9 for men. Women may vent their aggression for half-price. The boxer wears a mouthpiece and headgear, but he doesn't raise his fists to block the blows. His defense is limited to ducking, at which he excels.Since February, when financial desperation drove him into the streets, Akira Hareruya, a former professional boxer once ranked 17th in Japan, has suffered bloody noses, black eyes and broken ribs.
