The promoters for Baltimore native Hasim Rahman and Oleg Maskaev came to contractual terms yesterday after three days of negotiations in New York, clearing the way for Rahman to defend his World Boxing Council title against his Kazahkstan-born challenger Aug. 12 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. "Everything is all set," said Rahman's promoter, Bob Arum, whose agreement with Maskaev's promoter, Dennis Rappaport, averted a WBC-mandated purse bid had the two sides not reached agreement before the May 1 deadline.

WASHINGTON - In the mixed martial arts, which incorporates wrestling, jiujitsu and boxing, Erin Toughill rates among the world's best. Her Web site depicts her knocking out and even breaking the limbs of opponents. And at an earlier news conference, she told Laila Ali she would kick her "butt." But after nearly three rounds in the boxing ring with Ali at MCI Center last night, a bloody and badly beaten Toughill didn't look so tough. With her father, Muhammad Ali, looking on, Laila Ali scored a third-round knockout of Toughill (6-2-1)

A week ago, accompanied by manager-trainer Mack Lewis, he traveled to New York to meet with promoter Don King.A promotional agreement was signed, guaranteeing Pettway at least three fights a year on King's boxing shows, but the major inducement was the promise of a world title fight before the end of the year for at least a $50,000 purse.

NEW YORK -- In a confrontation between veteran boxer and young slugger, the puncher prevailed at The Paramount last night, with unbeaten Lamar Parks knocking out Baltimore's Percy Harris at 2:50 of the 10th round of their match for both the United States Boxing Association and North American Boxing Federation middleweight titles.Harris, 28, who used his superior height and boxing ability to keep the scheduled 12-rounder relatively even, began to show signs of fatigue in the seventh round.

DOVER, Del. - It was apparent from the opening bell that former heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman was the shark and that last night's opponent, Mario Cawley, was the minnow. And Rahman took just 5:25 to take his prey into deep water and devour him. He dropped Cawley twice with left hooks in the first round and then hit him with a jab at 2:25 of the second. That led referee Gary Rosato to wave an end to their scheduled eight-rounder before a capacity crowd of 1,800 booing fans at the Rollins Center at Dover Downs Slots.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - Heavyweight Obed Sullivan always seems to be on the periphery, on the verge of a break-through toward earning a shot at a big-money fight or title shot.That was the case when the Phoenix native lost earlier fights to Hasirm Rahman, Michael Grant and, even against journeyman Jesse Ferguson.It was that way again last night at the Adrian Phillips Ballroom in the Boardwalk Convention Hall at Bally's Park Place, as Sullivan dispatched pudgy, 242-pound Matt Green (11-5, nine KOs)
