Two former promoters for boxer Larry Holmes say they will appeal a judge's dismissal of their case in which they alleged that the former heavyweight champion breached a four-fight contract. U.S. District Judge J. Spencer Letts in Los Angeles dismissed the case in mid-trial because of a question about how the deal was structured, said Bob Rey, a Riverside fight promoter and one of the plaintiffs.

Speculation that former North American Boxing Federation and World Boxing Council junior middleweight champion Lupe Aquino of Santa Paula might appear on the May boxing card at the Ventura Theatre became moot when the promoters canceled the card. Lonnie Smith, a middleweight from Las Vegas who was scheduled to box in the main event, injured his hip during a sparing bout and called off the fight. "We got jammed up on time to do anything else so I decided to call off the show so we can put on a quality show in July," said promoter Paul Konapelsky.

The rebirth of boxing in Ventura after a six-year absence found its roots in Orange County through a casual conversation of two friends. Paul Konapelsky, the president of LBA Associates of Costa Mesa, a boxing promotions company, and Gary Folgner, owner of the Ventura Theater, were having dinner a few months ago at another Folgner establishment, The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano. "Gary and I were talking about boxing in general and he suggested to me to check out Ventura," Konapelsky said.
