Not far off an exit ramp on the long road back to the heavyweight title is a nondescript concrete building, about the size of rest-stop washroom, in which a boxer sweats through his workday. In a square ring that occupies nearly all of the square inches in the Palm Springs Boxing Club, Riddick Bowe almost has to duck his 6-foot-5 frame to avoid the overhead beams while he stalks his sparring partner, Everett (Big Foot) Martin. As Bowe perspires, a wall poster stares daggers at him.

Remember when the heavyweight champion of the world wasn't a group photo? When the titleholder didn't come in triplicate? You think Dempsey ever needed a bunch of letters after his name? A WBO, or WBA or IBF or the like? Of course not! The only letters he ever needed were "C-H-A-M-P." Do you think when John L.

Riddick Bowe talks the talk, but he has to beat Jorge Luis Gonzalez tonight in the MGM Grand Garden to show that he can walk the walk fast enough to run in the Mike Tyson sweepstakes. "Most people know I'm the best heavyweight out there," said Bowe, but those who disagree are legion since he lost the World Boxing Assn. and International Boxing Federation titles to Evander Holyfield on Nov. 6, 1993.
