Boxing Wladimir Klitschko vs. Tony Thompson 4 p.m. [HBO]: Times are tough for those who prefer boxing to dudes fighting in cages. And it's easy to understand why boxing generates little heat when the IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight belts are on the line, the match is held in Hamburg, Germany, and it is broadcast on a Saturday afternoon in the States. A Thompson win would be a huge upset and you probably still wouldn't care. So it goes.

The promoters for Baltimore native Hasim Rahman and Oleg Maskaev came to contractual terms yesterday after three days of negotiations in New York, clearing the way for Rahman to defend his World Boxing Council title against his Kazahkstan-born challenger Aug. 12 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. "Everything is all set," said Rahman's promoter, Bob Arum, whose agreement with Maskaev's promoter, Dennis Rappaport, averted a WBC-mandated purse bid had the two sides not reached agreement before the May 1 deadline.

A Las Vegas judge has effectively made Baltimore native Hasim Rahman a promotional free agent by ordering the newly crowned World Boxing Council heavyweight champion and financially bankrupt fighter to pursue the best possible deals to pay off his more than 20 creditors. Neither Rahman's attorney, Richard Holley, nor his manager, Steve Nelson, could be reached for comment. However, according to court documents, Judge Bruce A. Markell of the District Court of Nevada ruled Tuesday that Nelson had an obligation to seek out favorable options essentially from whichever promoter provides the best terms for the services of Rahman, whose debts total nearly $5 million.

1 Piece of the Rock: He doesn't live here anymore, but we can still claim Hasim Rahman, especially if he beats Wladimir Klitschko in the International Boxing Federation bout (4:45 p.m., HBO). 2 Tebow, not tae bo: And the Heisman goes to ... (8 p.m., ESPN). 3 Not so much: Indiana vs. Kentucky (4 p.m., chs. 13, 9) used to be a huge men's basketball game. Now, neither team is ranked. Watch and recall those earlier days. 4 Couldn't be: much worse: The Wizards endured a 34-point loss to the Celtics on Thursday, so tonight against the 76ers (7:30, Comcast SportsNet)
