In a bout in which both fighters gave as good as they got, Lujan floored Lazcano in the sixth round, and Lazcano opened cuts below Lujan's eyes.

Harry Kazandjian still sells luxury cars, just as he did a dozen years ago. Still holds a second job too. Once one of the most popular fighters on the local club circuit, Kazandjian is the manager of Danny Lujan, a 22-year-old junior welterweight from Salinas, Calif., who tonight will box at the Warner Center Marriott. Kazandjian, who lives and works in Encino, spotted Lujan while attending fights at the Reseda Country Club more than a year ago.

Maybe Lyle Barron had better try picking on someone his own size. Jimmy "The Stump" Buffo, the 5-foot-5 former Valley College linebacker and World's Toughest Man contestant from North Hollywood, made good in his professional boxing debut by knocking out the 6-4 Barron 2 minutes 20 seconds into the second round of their scheduled four-round heavyweight fight Thursday night at the Reseda Country Club.

There's no disputing Jimmy Buffo's tenacity. Or his bravado. But can Buffo box? Better than Butterbean, he claims. And Butterbean had better beware. "I want to get Butterbean and I will get him," Buffo said. "I'm not saying I'm Mike Tyson or [Evander] Holyfield, but I can beat him." Buffo's nickname is "the Stump," a moniker born of his 5-foot-5, 225-pound physique and reputation as a competitor tougher than a piece of beef jerky.
