For boxing fans attending shows at the Playboy Mansion, there is barely time for the fights. Not with all the Playmates to ogle, the hors d'oeuvres to sample and the grotto to explore. Which makes tonight's headline attraction, super-middleweight Jeff Lacy, the perfect Playboy fighter. Based on his performances, he doesn't figure to be in the ring long, leaving plenty of time for the peripheral attractions. As a member of the United States' team in the 2000 Olympics, Lacy failed to medal.

Arthur Palac could barely contain his tears. Michael Simms Jr. could not stop smiling. It was not difficult to figure out which fighter had made the U.S. Olympic team Saturday. The dozen who claimed positions on the team at the box-offs at Foxwoods Resort Casino kept their Olympic dreams alive. "It means everything," said Simms, who emerged as the 178-pound team member by defeating Olanda Anderson. "Ten years of hard work pays off. It means the world right now."

How good is the Olympic boxing class of 2000? It was hard to tell Friday night at the Texas Station casino where Rocky Juarez, Jeff Lacy, and Francisco Bojado were on display. But not for long. All three disposed of questionable opposition in less than a round, each improving to 2-0 as professionals. Juarez, the silver medalist in the featherweight division in the 2000 Games, finished off Mike Jones (0-2) in 44 seconds.

Defending world champion Brian Viloria of the United States built a 6-1 lead after two rounds, then held on for an 8-6 victory over European champion Sergei Kazakov of Russia in a first-round bout at 106 pounds Sunday. The 5-foot-4 Viloria, about four inches shorter than Kazakov, chose to box rather than fight inside, and it paid off for two rounds. Then the taller Kazakov became more aggressive and found the range with his left, whittling Viloria's lead down to 7-4 at the end of three rounds.

Nonito Donaire unanimously outpointed Rafael Concepcion on Saturday night in his first super-flyweight fight to take the World Boxing Assn. interim title in Las Vegas. Donaire, the 26-year-old Filipino star who vacated his IBF flyweight title to move up in weight, improved to 22-1 with his 21st consecutive victory. Judge Max De Luca scored the fight 117-111, Duane Ford had it 115-113, and Jerry Roth called it 116-112. Donaire used a potent jab to cut open a gash under Concepcion's left eye midway through the second round at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

Marshall Martinez of Fontana, a lightweight who draws inspiration from Oscar De La Hoya, made the U.S. team Thursday night by winning at the Olympic box-offs. The 18-year-old Martinez, who boxes for the Oscar De La Hoya Youth Center in East Los Angeles, forced 23-year-old David Jackson of Seattle to take a standing eight-count in the first round and went on to win the 132-pound bout, 18-4. "He's my No. 1 role model," Martinez said of De La Hoya, a 1992 Olympic gold medalist.

Jermain Taylor needed only one big right hand to send a pair of messages. One went to teammate Jeff Lacy, watching on TV in the athletes' village. The other was silent, but understood by the rest of the 156-pound Olympic boxing division: This kid packs a wallop. "That's what you call a knockout," Taylor said after making his Olympic debut a spectacular one with a right hand that sent Bulgaria's Dimitriy Usagin crumpling to the canvas in the first round Tuesday.

Wladimir Klitschko was knocked down and ended the fight bleeding on his stool. He looked anything but a winner, but the scorecards said otherwise. Klitschko won a split decision over DaVarryl Williamson after the heavyweight bout was stopped at the end of the fifth round because of a head butt Saturday night at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The ring doctor ruled Klitschko was bleeding too badly to continue, but the decision went to the ringside scorecards because the butt was unintentional.

Faster in the pits, faster on the track, Martin Truex Jr. held off Clint Bowyer on a final two-lap shootout Saturday night at Clermont, Ind., to win the Kroger 200, his sixth NASCAR Busch Series victory of the season. The rain-interrupted race was scheduled for 200 laps, but a late crash kept it going under yellow while the track was cleared. The green came out after 202 laps, and Truex pulled away to victory in a Chevrolet. Pole-winner Reed Sorenson finished third in a Dodge.
