Yet again, an irascible father has trained his irascible son in the emotionally freighted pursuit of boxing, and although this act of near-lunacy occurs fairly often in the sport, these two have been at it for almost three decades, attempting to refrain from strangling one another.

Everyone knew David Tua had power. On Saturday night, Michael Moorer quickly found out just how much. The 29-year-old Samoan powerhouse embarrassed the two-time former heavyweight champion, stopping him 30 seconds into their scheduled 10-rounder. Attacking immediately after the opening bell, Tua, 243, backed Moorer into the ropes and hit him in the head with a hard left.

Joe Calzaghe has spent a decade chasing recognition as one of boxing's great world champions. If he adds Mikkel Kessler's World Boxing Council and World Boxing Assn. super-middleweight titles to his World Boxing Organization belt tonight, Calzaghe may finally get the global respect he craves. Unbeaten in 43 fights, including 20 straight WBO victories since taking the title from Chris Eubank in 1997, Calzaghe has been frustrated that he never got the fight he wanted against Roy Jones Jr.

LAS VEGAS -- When Bernard Hopkins takes on opponents, one thing is certain: He will try to mess with their heads. The reigning light-heavyweight champion and former state prisoner once routinely wore an executioner's mask into the ring to intimidate. He creates commotion. He provokes. And always, the plan is to win. Yet, when it was suggested to Hopkins recently that he may have mastered the mind game, he was outraged.
