After a four-year absence from the ring, Robert Kinchen wanted his comeback fight Thursday night at the El Cortea Convention Center to be nice and easy. Instead, it was rough and awkward, but not rough enough to cause any serious problems for Kinchen, who is the younger brother of middleweight James (The Heat) Kinchen. He stopped Jose Moreno on a technical knockout after the second round. But it surely was awkward enough to make Kinchen think twice about a comeback.

In the old days, when they called him Hit Man and the Motor City Cobra, Tommy Hearns used to hit people with his right hand the way Jose Canseco hits baseballs. But that was long ago, particularly in the life of a boxer--the late 1970s, the early 1980s. When the Hit Man landed the right, the show was over. Friday night, at the Las Vegas Hilton, Hearns was not only a shadow of the great welterweight and middleweight of the old days, he was barely a memory.
