Driving around Baltimore this past summer, I noticed a trend of pulling down houses and replacing them with new ones or paving over the land for a parking lot, as Friends School recently did after demolishing a two-story stucco house that dated to the 1920s next to the North Charles Street campus. Traveling down the 1900 block of Ruxton Road, I cast my eyes to the side, and the stately old mansion that was there when I drove by a few days earlier was gone, with a sign in the freshly graded earth advertising the site as a desirable one for a house.

Baltimore middleweight (165 pounds) Mike Paschal returns to Du Burns Arena tonight, hoping to repeat a 2001 effort in which he captured his first regional Golden Gloves title. "It was the same night that Hasim Rahman knocked out Lennox Lewis. I remember it well. I was really nervous, and I knew that the guy I had to fight was physically strong. But once the bell rung, I was relaxed," said Paschal, a 23-year-old Pasadena resident who won via unanimous decision. "The guy came out throwing big punches, but I didn't stand there and bang with him," he said.

Growing up in Philadelphia as an aspiring amateur boxer, Ravens linebacker Jameel McClain found a mentor in the city's boxing champion, “ Smokin” Joe Frazier . McClain, who was 6-1 as a boxer while competing in area Golden Gloves tournaments, was given his first pair of boxing trunks by Frazier. That's why Monday's news that Frazier had died at age 67 after a short bout with liver cancer hit McClain hard. “It's bad news for the world, but [especially] for Philly,” McClain said.

Baltimore's Mike Paschal, a 165-pounder, out-boxed Mike Martinez, a U.S. Marine who is ranked No. 2 nationally, en route to a three-round decision last night at Du Burns Arena. It was Paschal's 17th straight victory, earning him his second regional Golden Gloves title and a berth in the Golden Gloves nationals in Las Vegas from May 26 to June 1. "I figured the first two rounds I could out-box him, but then it got tough," said Paschal, who improved to 55-12 with 25 knockouts. "He was digging some hard body shots, and I had a little trouble with that, so I just went back to stick-and-move, stick-and-move, and that worked out well for me."

Two years ago, a trip to the U.S. National Golden Gloves championships left Anne Arundel County's Mike Pascal with two broken ribs and an early exit. A journey to last year's event left Harford County's Maxell Taylor in tears despite earning a silver medal. "The guy I fought was in his own back yard, but I felt I had done enough to win it," said Taylor, an 18-year-old Edgewood resident who competes at 152 pounds. "I out-boxed him easily, but the judges gave it to the other guy," recalled Taylor, who finished as a national runner-up.

FLUSHING, N.Y. -- Fresh from the ring and still short of breath, the Golden Gloves winner, in regulation black satin Everlast trunks, was exultant:"Awesome. Awesome. This is the best rush in the whole world."And then Kathleen Collins, 23, ran a hand through her hair -- blond highlights matted with sweat -- and struggled out of her molded plastic breast protector."I really feel like a great fighter right now," Ms. Collins said.She'd never had the chance before. No women had, not once in the 68-year tradition of New York's vaunted Golden Gloves amateur boxing tournament.

Heavyweight Hasim Rahman could participate in a non-title bout against an opponent to be named as part of an HBO pay-per-view card promoted by Don King on Dec. 13 at a site to be determined, USA Today reported yesterday. Baltimore native Rahman (35-4-1, 29 knockouts) has moved to Las Vegas to train under Roger Mayweather. He is coming off a draw with David Tua that most experts thought he won. Rahman is the top contender to the World Boxing Council title held by Lennox Lewis, who may retire rather than fight a rematch of his controversial June 21 win over Vitali Klitschko.

The crowd of about 1,000 surrounding his new statue showered the greatest glove man in the history of the hot corner with a spirited and loving ovation at Saturday's unveiling ceremony. Then something quite unusual happened. Brooks Robinson wept. "I haven't had an applause like that in a long time, believe me," he said, choking up along the way. "Thank you very much. " It was a very special tribute to a very special Baltimore legend, but nobody knew how special it would feel until Robinson had trouble finding the words to thank all the people who came together on a cool afternoon outside Camden Yards to show their appreciation for his great baseball career and a life so well lived.

On a quiet Friday morning in a West Baltimore gym above the Cash USA pawnshop, Franchon Crews unleashes a powerful flurry outside the ring. "It's been a long, a long time coming," she roars. "But I know change gonna come, oh yes it did. " Her final breath floods the room. "Sorry, that's my own little version," she says in a nearly-empty UMAR Boxing gym. She replaced "will" with "did" - changing the last word of "A Change Is Gonna Come" because for her, change has come.

Two amateur boxers with local ties will each take big steps in their careers this weekend, with one, Hasim Rahman Jr., 15, making his first move and the other, James Berry, 19, trying to continue on his way toward a berth in the 2008 Olympics. Hasim Jr., 6 feet 2, 200 pounds, whose football prowess once caught the eye of coaches at Gilman, is just half an inch shorter than his father, former two-time world heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman. Using fists nearly as massive as his dad's, the younger Rahman in his first fight will take on an opponent to be determined during an amateur event tonight at the Pikesville Armory.

The two fighters had not met, even though Heather Schmitz trained at the Front Range Boxing Academy in Boulder, Colo., 60 miles from Becky Zerlentes' Hard Knocks Gym in Milliken. But they began talking during a weigh-in four days before the Golden Gloves championships scheduled for the following Saturday in Denver and realized how much they had in common. "They shook hands, got to know each other, really hit it off," said Jeanne DePriest, chairman of officials for Colorado Golden Gloves, who witnessed their bonding while handling the weigh-in.

Sam Perlozzo worried about the defense when the Orioles let Mike Bordick walk as a free agent last fall, and who could blame him? At shortstop, Bordick had the consistency of a metronome last season. He made one error in 117 games and seemed to make everyone around him better. Perlozzo, whose duties as bench coach include overseeing the team's infield defense, doesn't have those worries anymore, even with Bordick in Toronto and second baseman Jerry Hairston on the disabled list. On Tuesday, Bordick will make his first visit to Camden Yards since signing with the Blue Jays, and Perlozzo will be proud to show him how well the Orioles' defense has fared in his absence.
