* Roy E. LaGrone, 72, a retired art director and illustrator who flew with the Tuskegee airmen in World War II, died of a heart attack Dec. 8 at his home in Somerset, N.J. He discovered his love for flying as a teen-ager when he paid 50 cents to have a barnstorming stunt pilot take him up in a Ford Trimotor airplane in Pine Bluff, Ark., where he was born. "As soon as I got up there, I knew absolutely that this was what I wanted to do," he recalled. In the war, he was a member of the 332nd Fighter Group, one of four all-black fighter and bomber squadrons that fought in Europe.

For all too long, women's boxing started and ended with the colorful ring exploits of "The Coal Miner's Daughter," Christy Martin. With Martin, 32, showing signs of wear and tear, not to mention scar tissue, promoters of women's bouts have attempted to spice the sport by showcasing the fighting daughters of legendary Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, George Foreman and Roberto Duran. To Isra Girgrah, the International Boxing Federation women's lightweight champion, this is just a circus act, distracting from the women who can really fight and don't need to ride their fathers' coattails.

Hasim Rahman has been in the spotlight before, but somehow he has always ended up slipping back into the shadows. This time, though, could be different. Heading into tonight's World Boxing Council interim heavyweight title fight with Monte Barrett in Chicago, the Baltimore native appears more focused, having shed distractions and pounds that once dragged him down. "A man that don't know his history is bound to repeat it. And I'm here to tell you that I've been there, done that. I know clearly what happened and what I did wrong," Rahman said last month at his home - and training base - in Las Vegas.

The 22-year-old younger brother of former heavyweight boxing champion Hasim "The Rock" Rahman was being held yesterday at Baltimore County Detention Center on a $1 million bond on charges he robbed an Essex discount store and crashed into and injured a city police officer and the officer's wife during a getaway. Karim Abdul Rahman of the 5200 block of King Ave. in White Marsh was charged with two counts of armed robbery, first-degree assault, vehicle theft and related violations shortly after his arrest Monday.

NEW YORK -- Heavyweight contender Hasim Rahman of Baltimore will headline an ESPN2 show tonight when he squares off with Michael Rush of Tampa, Fla., at the fabled Roseland Ballroom. But Rahman vows it will be anything but a dance contest."This is all about business and making a statement," said Rahman (29-1), trying to atone for a controversial knockout loss to David Tua in Miami last December that is still under appeal."I've heard that Rush likes to hit and run, but he's not going to be able to hide too long in a 16-foot ring."

Former heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman, a Baltimore native, has been named the No. 1 contender to Lamon Brewster's World Boxing Organization crown and would get a title shot if he defeats Kali Meehan on Nov. 13 at New York's Madison Square Garden, Rahman's co-manager, Steve Nelson, said yesterday.

Judge Bruce A. Markell of the Las Vegas District Court yesterday rejected a contract by promoter Don King and validated one by Bob Arum with World Boxing Council champion Hasim Rahman, in a decision the fighter's promoter, Steve Nelson, called "a total victory." The move allows Rahman to "maximize Rock's potential financially in the ring," Nelson said. "The judge recognized that we have always had problems with Don King and now we can move forward under Bob Arum, whom we believe will help us to do that."

Hasim Rahman is out and Clifford Etienne is in as tonight's replacement for injured former heavyweight champion Riddick Bowe against journeyman Kenny Craven in a 10-rounder at the Louisville Gardens in Louisville, Ky. Rahman (40-5-1, 33 knockouts) received an invitation from local promoter Chris Webb to replace Bowe, but while the Baltimore native and former heavyweight titlist was awaiting approval from his promoter, Don King, Webb "went with Etienne," said Rahman's manager, Steve Nelson.

Citing an "erosion in their relationship," former world heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman has replaced trainer Bouie Fisher with Buddy McGirt Rahman's co-manager, Steve Nelson, said yesterday. "The decision was made over the past 72 hours," Nelson said from Vero Beach, Fla., where Baltimorean Rahman has trained for the past three weeks for his March 29 rematch with David Tua in Philadelphia to be televised on HBO. Fisher was in the corner for Rahman's last fight, a technical-decision loss to Evander Holyfield in Atlantic City in June.
