One day, Joe Hipp hopes to be on top of the boxing world. He's learned, however, that moving up the ranks of the heavyweight division isn't easy. The World Boxing Council ranks Hipp (20-1) among its top 20 heavyweights, but without backing from one of the sport's powerful promoters, he's found it difficult to get the type of matches he needs to move ahead. "I know if you just keep fighting and fighting, sooner or later you're going to be up there," Hipp said. "You just need to keep winning.

Rollin Williams of Campo, Calif., came back from a seventh-round knockdown to knock out Angel Armando Rodriguez 26 seconds into the eighth round and win the California junior middleweight championship Tuesday at the Country Club in Reseda. Williams, 153 1/2, went down early in the seventh round of the scheduled 12-rounder from a series of body punches. However, near the close of that round he dropped Rodriguez with a hard right to the jaw.

In a perhaps unprecedented rebuke of a major boxing governing body, a Nevada state judge Friday night revived the once-canceled Michael Moorer-George Foreman heavyweight title fight. "The fight is back on," said Todd duBoef, an executive with Top Rank Inc., Foreman's promoter. After almost 12 hours of court arguments Friday, Judge Donald Mosley ordered the World Boxing Assn. to sanction the Nov. 5 fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

George Foreman had finished a run along the beach and, with his heart and anger pumping, was not feeling like a man too old to fight for the heavyweight championship. Too old to fight? Foreman growled at the question, and promised that he will battle as hard as it takes--in court if necessary--to prove that, as he says, "I have a right to fight." Foreman acknowledges being 45 or older. His scheduled bout against champion Michael Moorer on Nov. 5 was wiped out this week by the World Boxing Assn.

Joe Hipp's nickname might be "The Boss," but he barely got a chance to work Monday night. Less than 30 seconds into the first round of his heavyweight fight with Cleveland Woods at the Bren Center, Hipp knocked out Woods with a powerful overhand left. Hipp, a left-hander who is ranked 21st by the World Boxing Council, threw only two punches in the fight, which ended before some of the 1,000 fans had settled down for the scheduled 10-round main event of the second LBNT Pro Sports card.

Is this the end of George Foreman's last great comeback? Facing only one last bureaucratic hurdle, the scheduled Nov. 5 heavyweight title bout between champion Michael Moorer and challenger Foreman, 46, was scrapped Wednesday when the World Boxing Assn. refused to sanction the bout. Although HBO, which had planned to televise the fight, and the fighters' management groups considered going ahead anyway, Moorer refused when told the WBA planned to take away his belt if he fought Foreman.
