This past Halloween, on an unseasonably warm evening, the new Mack Lewis Boxing Gym, nestled in the shadows of Johns Hopkins Hospital in the 900 block of North Bond Street, was alive with its usual activity. The night's soundtrack: the thud of padded fists crashing into heavy bags, a buzzer that sounds every three minutes, the grunts and groans of men pushing themselves to their physical limits and the staccato wisp of jump ropes. Seated in a corner near the entrance, wearing a radiant smile, was Lewis himself.

Baltimore's Tyrell Samuel will be involved in his first scheduled six-rounder when he fights at Glen Burnie's Michael's Eighth Avenue in tonight's junior lightweight co-main event against Fred Fleming of Cincinnati. If Samuel's three previous bouts are any indication, Fleming isn't likely to see the final round. Trained by former junior middleweight world champion Vincent Pettway, Samuel, 23, is 5-0 with three consecutive knockouts. A fan favorite at Michael's, Samuel is returning to the site of his last fight, when he beat New York's Raul Rivera in four rounds July 16. So Samuel knows he'll be expected to provide an explosive evening, more than likely in the form of a stoppage.

SEATTLE - Coach Mark Gottfried and the Alabama Crimson Tide got their "upset." Alabama survived a comeback by Southern Illinois, 65-64, when Darren Brooks missed a 17-foot jumper at the buzzer in a first-round NCAA tournament game yesterday at KeyArena. Alabama's Antoine Pettway had given the Tide the lead with only five seconds left on a runner in the lane - and that shot came only eight seconds after the Salukis' Brooks drove for a go-ahead basket with 13 seconds left.

After nearly two years of boxing inactivity, former world champion Vincent Pettway of Baltimore had hoped to regain some glory with a victory over New York's Luis Rosado before a hometown crowd at Du Burns Arena last night. Instead, the 35-year-old heard the fans scream, "Stop the fight!" as he absorbed a bloody beating that left him teetering around the ring en route to a sixth-round knockout in a scheduled eight-round junior middleweight bout. Pettway (43-7-1, 32 knockouts) was knocked down in the third round, had his right eye bloodied by a vicious left hook in the fifth round, and generally was beaten around the ring before Dr. Doug Frankel called an end to the fight at 2:05 of the sixth round.

Six years ago, Vincent Pettway was Baltimore's boxing champion, holder of a world junior middleweight title belt. Now, the city can boast the heavyweight champ, Hasim Rahman, and Pettway had receded so far into the background that fight fans -- if they remember him at all -- probably think his ring career is over. But, at 35, Pettway hasn't given up on boxing, and he's ready to chase a world title again, even if it means going back to local undercards. After two years without a bout, Pettway (43-6-1, 32 knockouts)

When Vincent Pettway, the handsome man and superb fighter, knocked out Italy's Gianfranco Rosi in Las Vegas on Sept. 17, 1994, he became Baltimore's first world boxing champion in more than half a century. He made headlines, logged a fair amount of mug time on local television, received official citations and a nice pewter plate from the mayor. But Pettway did not get what Hasim "Rock" Rahman got yesterday - his own motorcade through downtown Baltimore, a joyous rally at City Hall. He settled for a ride as grand marshal of the Thanksgiving Day parade two months later.
