LAS VEGAS -- When a boxing buff was reminded of last night's heavyweight title fight, he asked, "When's Tyson getting out?"Not a word or a thought or an opinion about who was to be in the ring at Caesars Palace; instead, a question about the future of Mike Tyson, who wasn't there.But the Mike Tyson mystique was here.Boxing's popularity usually thrives in direct proportion to the mystique of its heavyweight champion. At their best, Muhammad Ali, Rocky Marciano, Joe Louis and Jack Dempsey transcended the not-so-sweet science.

He held the heavyweight championship for 7 1/2 years, starting his career 48-0, one win short of Rocky Marciano's record.It wasn't enough.Now a victory over undisputed champion Evander Holyfield tomorrow night could go a long way toward lifting the cloud that long has hovered over Holmes.

The number of fights for a boxer is like the number of miles on a tire. The more fights, the more wear and tear, if not punctures and flats.Now that Mike Tyson has accepted a guaranteed $15 million for trying to dethrone Evander Holyfield, assured of $30 million, as the world heavyweight champion on Nov. 8 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nev., it's time to check the challenger's mileage.Once the youngest heavyweight champion in history, Tyson turned 25 on June 30, two days after his 12-round battering of Razor Ruddock in their rematch.

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.
