LAS VEGAS -- Weighing in at a ripped 235 pounds Thursday, Hasim Rahman was told he looked like a bodybuilder heading into tonight's heavyweight title bout against Oleg Maskaev. "No, what I look like is what a heavyweight champ should look like," said Rahman, the Baltimore native who holds the World Boxing Council crown. "A bodybuilder is going to wish he could do what I'm going to do on Saturday night." Rahman needs a solid performance to maintain his hopes of a showdown with International Boxing Federation champ Wladimir Klitschko, if not to silence critics of what has been an up-and-down career.

Jim Lampley says the knockout was among the most brutal he has witnessed. "When Oleg Maskaev landed that right hand to the left side of Hasim Rahman's face, Rahman sailed through the ropes and basically landed in my lap - first his head, then his upper body, then his legs," says Lampley, an HBO commentator.

When heavyweight Oleg Maskaev met trainer Victor Valle Jr. nearly 3 1/2 years ago at Gleason's Gym in Brooklyn, N.Y., Maskaev was shadow-boxing and - it appeared - a shadow of the fighter he once was. "I was alone, just going through the motions," Maskaev said, recalling an 18-month period when, at the age of 33, he had gone 2-3 and was knocked out three times.

Los Angeles -- Shortly after entering the Pound-4-Pound Gym located a few miles south of Hollywood, Baltimore native Hasim Rahman donned one of two American flags draped over the red, white and blue ring ropes -- much like a comic hero would his cape.

Should Hasim Rahman retire from boxing after his loss to Oleg Maskaev? Rahman's better days are past him. He has looked shaky the last few years. Please stay in Las Vegas and become a boxing analyst for ESPN. Harry Repas Baltimore At 33, if Hasim can brush his teeth without wobbling and is able to see punches coming at him (he'll still have the best seat in the house for that), he'll be viewed as a steppingstone veteran by managers moving young heavyweights. If he still wants to fight, God bless and good luck.

A fellow with two first names won a version of boxing's heavyweight title Saturday night, but Mr. Flip will forgive you if you weren't paying attention. In the fragmented, star-starved heavyweight division, maybe Samuel Peter holds out the hope of at least a unified champion. He defeated Oleg Maskaev for the World Boxing Council belt, and now he apparently must beat a couple of Klitschkos - International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Organization champ Wladimir and former WBC titleholder Vitali - to be recognized as the undisputed champion.

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.
