While admitting there were "many fouls" committed by World Boxing Council champion Hasim Rahman during his March 18 defense against James Toney in Atlantic City, N.J., organization president Jose Sulaiman said granting Toney a rematch of the majority draw based on those infractions would be "unprecedented." "In my 30 years, we have never" granted a rematch based on fouls by a champion, said Sulaiman, who did not rule out a possible return bout for Toney, 37. On Thursday, Toney's promoter, Dan Goossen, sent a letter to Sulaiman - along with photos of what Goossen considered illegal kidney punches by Rahman - seeking a rematch.

Baltimore native Hasim Rahman must defend his World Boxing Council title against Staten Island resident Oleg Maskaev, with the winner to face James Toney in accordance with an organization mandate, WBC vice president Mauricio Sulaiman said yesterday. Sulaiman said a majority vote of the WBC's 36-member board of governers determined that Rahman (41-5-2, 33 knockouts) - who battled Toney (69-4-3, 43 KOs) to a draw most ringsiders thought Rahman won on March 18 - must have a deal in place to meet Maskaev, 37, by May 1. If an agreement cannot be reached between Rahman's promoter Bob Arum and that of Maskaev (32-5, 25 KOs)

Organization president Jose Sulaiman has declared that a July 23 heavyweight bout between top contender Hasim Rahman of Baltimore and No. 2 Monte Barrett of Queens, N.Y., is for the World Boxing Council's interim title. The winner will earn a shot at reigning WBC champion Vitali Klitschko this fall, Rahman said last night. "Klitschko would be champion until he fights the winner," Sulaiman told The Sun in an earlier report. Promoter Don King could pair Rahman-Barrett, slated for New York's Madison Square Garden, with a heavyweight unification bout between International Boxing Federation king Chris Byrd (38-2-1, 20 KOs)

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."

Disregarding the possibility that he might be stripped of his World Boxing Council title and disregarding challenges to his manhood, Ukrainian heavyweight Vitali Klitschko was expected to finalize a contract last night to fight Calvin Brock in September instead of higher-ranked contenders Hasim Rahman or Monte Barrett. WBC president Jose Sulaiman was diplomatic in an interview yesterday, but he encouraged Klitschko to instead fight the winner of the Aug. 13 interim championship bout in Chicago between Rahman and Barrett.

The off-again, on-again World Boxing Council heavyweight title fight between champion Vitali Klitschko and No. 1 contender Hasim Rahman is off again due to a Klitschko back injury that will require surgery Wednesday. A thigh injury set back Klitschko's original defense against Rahman from April 30 to July 23. Now, Klitschko apparently won't be healthy until September, pending results of the operation in Los Angeles. "The fight probably won't happen until September, but we won't know for sure until he comes out" of surgery, said Klitschko's adviser, Shelly Finkel.

A sprained right knee, suffered during a sparring session Thursday night, has forced World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko to pull out of yet a fourth scheduled defense against former champion and Baltimore native Hasim Rahman, promoter Bob Arum said yesterday. Klitschko (35-2, 34 knockouts), who has not fought since December of last year, twisted the knee during the sparring session in Los Angeles, but was deemed fit to fight yesterday after a one-hour examination by orthopoedic surgeon Tony Daly of the Los Angeles Sports Medicine Clinic.

World Boxing Council official Mauricio Sulaiman calls Vitali Klitschko-Hasim Rahman "the best heavyweight fight out there." HBO Sports president Ross Greenburg says, "It's not only a logical fight for HBO, but one of the most intriguing." But if WBC heavyweight champion Klitschko has his way, the 33-year-old title-holder will make a second defense - this one in Germany in March - of the crown vacated by Lennox Lewis before taking on Rahman (40-5-1, 33 knockouts) during the mandated month of June.

World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko pulled a muscle in his left thigh while training in Kiev, Ukraine, on Friday, an injury that apparently will delay his title defense against ex-champion and Baltimore native Hasim Rahman that was scheduled for April 30 at New York's Madison Square Garden. Shelly Finkel, an adviser to Klitschko, said yesterday that he received a call Saturday from the fighter's business manager, Bernd Boente, informing him that the champion was injured "while running" on Friday.
