It took an injury to his right eye for Victor Davis to begin seeing more clearly.On Jan. 10, 1991, Davis scored what appeared to be a routine sixth-round technical knockout over Sammy Gervin at La Fontaine Bleu in Glen Burnie. At the time, he was ranked No. 8 among welterweights by the International Boxing Federation, and local promoters couldn't wait to sign him.But something else happened that night that ultimately may have benefited Davis more than the win. Sometime during the fight, a rough portion of Gervin's glove brushed across Davis' face.

Laurel welterweight Victor Davis underwent minor surgery Thursday to repair a "bruised" retina in his right eye, forcing him ZTC to cancel his scheduled March 4 bout against Eddie Van Kirk at the Baltimore Arena.Promoter Don Elbaum immediately revised his card, matching Van Kirk with Baltimore rival Vincent Pettway in a 12-round bout for the Maryland state welterweight title."This is the fight I really wanted to make, and I think it's the one the fans here want to see," said Elbaum, who witnessed the eruption of a long-festering feud between Van Kirk and Pettway at a news conference last week.

Two twists have been added to spice the Vincent Pettway-Eddie Van Kirk match for the state welterweight title at the Baltimore Arena on March 4.The payday each fighter receives will depend on the outcome, with the winner ($7,500) of the scheduled 12-round bout guaranteed more than the loser ($5,000), in a special deal arranged by promoter Don Elbaum.With both fighters predicting early knockouts, it was a relatively easy sell for Elbaum. Van Kirk's manager, Tony Pulaski, produced a dummy copy of a March 4 sports page from The Sun with a headline proclaiming, "Van Kirk KOs Pettway in First Round."

Reading time, two minutes:WHILE everyone is in a fix-it mood -- get rid of instant replay,have a college football playoff, invade Kuwait, etc. -- it's time once again to propose the longer a field goal the less point value it should carry. Sometime in this decade, they'll be kicking 75-yard field goals and a team won't even need an offense.* Dick Schultz wants colleges to, in effect, pick up the tab for football and basketball? The NCAA executive director obviously hasn't checked out some of the deficits some states are running.
