The International Boxing Federation middleweight championship belt will be presented to Michael Nunn on Tuesday night at the Country Club in Reseda. Nunn won the belt last month by knocking out previously unbeaten Frank Tate, but Tate and his handlers refused to surrender the belt. "I think Frank wore the belt out of the ring after Michael knocked him out," Dan Goossen, Nunn's manager, said in jest. "I think Frank wore it around his head to hold one of the ice packs in place."

The 1984 Olympic gold medalist, who didn't turn pro until last August, will fight for the third time as a pro Feb. 2 at the Hollywood Paladium in a 12-rounder for Alonzo Strongbow's North American Boxing Federation flyweight title. That fight will be televised by CBS, which has already done two of Gonzales' fights and which clearly is planning to do more.

Hollywood Park was the Great Race Place Sunday, the great race being the $1 million Gold Cup. . . . "They got their money's worth, didn't they?" said trainer Wayne Lukas after his Criminal Type won a duel over Sunday Silence that lasted the length of the stretch and wasn't decided until the final stride. . . . Indeed, it was even worth the price of a losing $10 pari-mutuel ticket. . . . You've heard of football players who have a nose for the end zone.
