WASHINGTON - Baltimore native Hasim Rahman was involved in yet another brawl at yet another promotional boxing event, but unlike his wrestling match with Lennox Lewis that destroyed an ESPN set two years ago, this time, it was as peacemaker. During yesterday's news conference at the Hotel Washington, where Rahman (35-4-1, 29 knockouts) was promoting his Dec. 13 fight with John Ruiz (38-5-1, 27 KOs) for the interim World Boxing Association crown, Rahman used his massive hands and 6-foot-3 body to break up a 10-minute fracas involving middleweights Bernard Hopkins and Rahman's stablemate, William Joppy.

NEW YORK - For years, he has labored in the shadows cast by bigger-name attractions. Now, Keith Holmes says, the time has come for him to step into the sunlight and announce himself to the world as the standout fighter he always has believed himself to be. Holmes (35-2, 23 KOs) puts his World Boxing Council middleweight championship on the line against International Boxing Federation champ Bernard Hopkins (38-2-1, 28 KOs) tonight in the Theater at Madison Square Garden. "I think it's very disrespectful people are overlooking me," Holmes said.

Boxer William Joppy has never been knocked out in the ring, but he knows what it's like to be knocked unconscious for longer than the 10-count."I was out of it for like 15 seconds," said Joppy, recalling a car accident in January, during which he suffered a severe neck injury."

LAS VEGAS - During the aftermath of the Lennox Lewis-Evander Holyfield heavyweight title bout here in November 1999, many boxers who showed up as spectators could be seen with beautiful women on their arms like jewelry, or sipping beers at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, the host site for that fight. Then there was Felix Trinidad, who could go down in history as one of the most feared and devastating, two-fisted punchers the sport has ever known. Trinidad gently held his daughter, and made himself available to autograph seekers, flanked by his pregnant wife, Sharon, and his father-trainer, Felix Sr. "Yes, yes," said Trinidad, 27, in his native Puerto Rican language, as a man asked if it was OK to tickle his daughter, Ashley, now 4. He also has another daughter, Licah, who is 9 months old. But that image is a sharp contrast to the Trinidad who will put his 38-0 record (31 knockouts)

Sometime after 11 tonight, Baltimore heavyweight Hasim Rahman will step into the same Atlantic City boxing ring he was literally knocked out of in early November. Russia's Oleg Maskaev (19-2, 14 knockouts), the man whose right hand punched Rahman through the ropes and nearly into the laps of ringside HBO commentators, also will step into that same ring - but it won't be against Rahman. Rahman (32-2, 26) will take on South Africa's World Boxing Union champion, Corrie Sanders, (36-1, 26)

LAS VEGAS - Felix Trinidad entered Saturday night's bout with Fernando Vargas as the World Boxing Association's super welterweight champ. He may have left it as a legend. They waged battle for nearly 12 brutal rounds. There were six knockdowns. Five of the knockdowns were by Trinidad (39-0, 32 knockouts), and the last, for a knockout at 1:33 of the 12th round, added the International Boxing Federation junior middleweight title held by Vargas (20-1, 18 knockouts) to Trinidad's impressive list of achievements.

WASHINGTON - After his ninth-round knockout of Quincy Taylor earned him the World Boxing Council crown on March 16, 1996, Washington middleweight Keith Holmes offered solace to one of his weeping daughters. "She was in my corner, crying after the fight, didn't like seeing daddy in there," said Holmes, 30, who briefly lost that crown to Hassine Cherifi of France after two defenses, then regained it from Cherifi two fights later. "I told her, `Baby, don't cry, daddy's taking you to the toy store.

WASHINGTON -- William Joppy did exactly what he said he would do. At times, he boxed and moved. On occasion, he mixed it up. He stood in close, made the challenger miss, even took some shots on the chin. In the end the World Boxing Association middleweight champ was simply too good for Dominican Julio Cesar Green (25-4, 17 knockouts), whom he stopped in the seventh round. The victory improved his record to 28-1-1 as the main event on a Showtime-aired event at MCI Center before a crowd of 8,212.

UPPER MARLBORO -- Sharmba Mitchell had never scored a knockout with a body punch -- until last night -- and he didn't even see the guy fall.The first round of his fight with John Stewart was rather uneventful until shortly before the round-ending bell. That's when Mitchell (39-2, 27 KOs), the WBC Intercontinental super lightweight champ, planted both feet, dipped his head and sunk a powerful left hook deep into the right side of Stewart's midsection.Stewart (18-5, six KOs) was barely two steps from his own corner but couldn't make it there.
