ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- Many boxing critics mock his World Boxing Organization heavyweight title belt, but Ray Mercer again proved he had the heart of a champion by taking Tommy Morrison's best shots for three rounds before scoring a stunning knockout at 28 seconds of the fifth round at the Convention Hall last night.Mercer, 30, appeared in danger of being knocked out himself as the previously unbeaten Morrison scored repeatedly with his patented left hook.The 1988 Olympic gold medalist began his comeback in the fourth and finished Morrison in the fifth with a relentless attack.

NEW YORK — It wasn't the final point of the match, the winning forehand from Kim Clijsters that couldn't be chased down by a dispirited and slow-footed Venus Williams, that brought 23,000 people to their feet at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Friday. That was just about expected because second-seeded and defending champion Clijsters had gained such momentum from another shot, a luxurious lob that sailed just beyond the racket of Williams and skipped off the baseline as Williams waved her racket helplessly.

In his professional debut in January at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, super middleweight Anthony Dirrell of Flint, Mich., took less than a round to dispatch his New York rival. Last night, the 20-year-old's 168-pound fight lasted longer, but he was no less impressive. In the first round, Dirrell dropped Lanham's Larry Brothers with a left hook and forced a standing eight count. He also knocked out his mouthpiece. Brothers (5-14-2, four knockouts) helplessly ducked and dodged along the ropes in the second, all the while taking vicious punishment.

A 66-year-old Gamber man has been charged with attempted murder after a tenant who had come to pay his rent was shot at and assaulted, state police in Westminster said yesterday. According to police, Glenn Allen George, 46, had gone to the Niner Road home of his landlord, Joseph Anthony Kos Jr., to pay his rent Wednesday evening.

Police said George told them that Kos fired the gun once, missing him, and then beat him with the butt end of the gun until he was able to get away and run to the Gamber Community Volunteer Fire Department for help.

Eddie VanKirk settled scores with his fists as he grew up on the tough streets of Southwest Baltimore. He went on to box professionally for 13 years as a welterweight and confidently took on competitors. Mr. VanKirk died Sunday at the University of Maryland Medical Center of complications from an infection. He was 45. The circumstances of his death mirrored the ups and downs in his life. He was recuperating from a gunshot wound that he suffered in November last year during a home invasion in the 300 block of Parrish St. Police said the gunman demanded money and drugs.

PHOENIX -- The previous six days had been difficult enough that the last thing the Orioles needed was a long stay on the field to think about all that had transpired on the road trip. But in a grueling fourth inning at Chase Field yesterday, when Steve Trachsel threw 38 pitches and the Orioles lost any chance of a series victory and a winning West Coast swing, there was ample opportunity for reflection. The Arizona Diamondbacks' three-run fourth gave them a five-run lead and all but assured the Orioles' eventual 8-3 loss before an announced crowd of 27,744.
