Nonito Donaire has his own rematch he longs for. Before he gets there, he has to deal with the guy whose career he derailed. On Nov. 9, on an HBO-televised card from Corpus Christi, Texas, that includes a super-featherweight world title fight between Oxnard's unbeaten Mikey Garcia and champion Roman Martinez, Donaire (30-2, 20 knockouts) will face Vic Darchinyan (39-5-1, 28 KOs) in a featherweight bout. Darchinyan was an unbeaten world flyweight champion who spoke brashly and carried a wicked punch before Donaire recorded his breakthrough 2007 victory by fifth-round technical knockout in Connecticut.

NEW YORK - Bank of America Corp. is slashing 1,200 jobs in its mortgage division as the company's refinancing business slows amid rising interest rates.

The nation's banks have experienced a sharp slowdown in once-booming profits from refinancing as mortgage rates rose from their historic lows while the housing market healed.

BOSTON - As the Boston Red Sox boarded their buses and headed to the airport, they had a sense this season could be something special. They had just swept the Tampa Bay Rays. The season was barely two weeks old, but a team that finished last season in last place had started this one in first place. As the buses rolled along the streets of Boston, word spread among the players that something bad had happened. Something about the marathon. But cellphone service had been interrupted, and the team flight took off for Cleveland before the players were fully informed.

Months after much of organized labor fought hard to block his election as mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti tried to mend fences Wednesday with a call for solidarity with unions in their struggle for more jobs that pay middle-class wages. “Now more than ever, our fight must be for more than just jobs,” Garcetti told hundreds of union leaders at a national AFL-CIO convention in downtown Los Angeles. “It must be for good jobs - jobs that don't just pay rent, but that help you buy a home, jobs that don't just pay the bills, but that can send your children to college.” Maria Elena Durazo, the Los Angeles County Labor Federation leader who ran a major independent campaign against Garcetti in the May election, welcomed the mayor's remarks, saying unions were focused on the tasks ahead.
