Everyone's heard about boxing's ugly side. Now, meet its "Raging Beauty." That's the calling card of female boxer Israh Girgrah, who will try again at the Wyndham Baltimore Inner Harbor hotel tonight to demonstrate that she has the knockout power to match her knockout looks. The holder of three world boxing titles will carry an 18-2-3 record with nine knockouts into the ring in putting her Universal Boxing Association lightweight (135 pounds) title on the line against Tracy "The Lady" Byrd (12-4, four KOs)

WASHINGTON - The offense was dragging and desperately in need of some direction when coach Randy Wittman called on his most tested veterans to serve up a lesson in ball movement, hustle and huge shots. With Andre Miller putting on a point guard clinic, Al Harrington delivering a flashback offensive performance and Drew Gooden dashing all over the court with abandon, the Washington Wizards went into the locker room Sunday with a double-digit halftime lead over the Indiana Pacers. When the Wizards returned for the third quarter and Wittman put the game back into the hands of his starters, the offense flew off the rails once again.

There was no easing into the first UFC event in Baltimore. Chris Beal jolted the sold-out crowd to attention with a flying-knee knockout of Patrick Williams in the second round of the night's first fight. Danny Castillo then flattened Charlie Brenneman with a punch to win the second fight of the card by knockout. In many places where the UFC holds its pay-per-views, the fans file in throughout the preliminary card. Not in Baltimore. Fight fans hungry to welcome mixed martial arts' biggest promotion had Baltimore Arena looking almost full by the opening bell.

Let's get ready for a vocal rumble. The final 16 contestants took the stage last night to compete for the remaining spots on their coaches' teams, and a spot in the live shows. Remember: each coach is able to get one more additional steal, and it was Christina and Adam's turn to give someone another chance. The contestants needed to pick a song that would showcase their talent, and prove they are worthy of a spot on the live shows. Team Adam: Lina Gaudenzi and “I'd Rather Go Blind” by Etta James vs. Preston Pohl and “No Woman No Cry” by Bob Marley Coach Adam's team kicked off the night with two classic songs, bur rehearsal found him second-guessing whether they were the right song choices.

Vice President Joe Biden was stronger in Thursday's debate than challenger Rep. Paul Ryan, but the matchup didn't produce the kind of clear winner that the debate between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney did. Joe Biden was Joe Biden - garrulous and heartfelt, yet unabashedly aggressive in defending the administration and attacking the opposition. Paul Ryan was Paul Ryan - wonkish, earnest and controlled. Mr. Biden largely dominated the exchange in a way that will appeal to some and may turn off others.

It's getting down to the wire, my friends. Five chefs remain: Lorena, Chris, Patricia, Takashi, and Kerry. This week the Quickfire challenge is all about prep (my favorite kind!). Each chef must separate 18 eggs, grate two pounds of parmesan, and butcher a beef tenderloin into five filets. The first two chefs to finish and pass have to use their properly prepped ingredients in a dish. The remaining three chefs will judge. I love this challenge. I love all prep challenges. With these Masters, it's especially entertaining, as these guys probably haven't had to do mise en place in a long, long time.

INDIO, Calif. — If boxing can figure out where it left its torch before the whole house goes down, Gary Russell Jr. again showed he might have the hands to hold it. The 24-year-old featherweight from Washington D.C. had too many hands for Christopher Perez at Fantasy Springs Casino over the weekend, decking him four times and stopping him at 1:41 of the third round. That makes Russell 20-0 with 12 knockouts. So what? Twenty-and-oh is the shallow end of the pool. But if all the cards get played correctly, this kid has the blurry hand speed, the savvy, the quickness and the sly charm to give boxing the lifeline it doesn't deserve.

Mike Tyson is expected to attend a noon news conference today at the Lincoln Theatre in Washington, where the former world champion will announce his intentions to fight Ireland's Kevin McBride on June 11 at MCI Center, his adviser, Shelly Finkel, said last night. The Sun reported last month that McBride (32-4-1, 27 knockouts) and Germany's Andreas Sidon (26-5, 20 KOs) were among Tyson's prospective rivals for a bout on Showtime pay per view. Tyson (50-5, 44 knockouts) has, in fact, chosen to meet McBride, who has won his past seven fights by knockout.

Jake Smith is promoting another boxing show, this time tonight at the Pikesville Armory. A list of the usual suspects to be featured on the professional card begins with super middleweight (168 pounds) Tony Cygan (9-0, six knockouts) and heavyweight Jed Phipps (16-3, nine KOs), both from Baltimore. Fan favorite Mike Dietrich will be there as well, but the unbeaten 22-year-old heavyweight won't be getting into the ring. Instead, Dietrich will be ringside, wearing a colostomy bag and feeling "lucky to be alive" after a stabbing incident last month left him with a punctured lung, a punctured heart valve and a severely damaged colon.
