When Marco Antonio Barrera tried to get into the Pond of Anaheim on Saturday night, he was stopped because he didn't have a credential. It proved to be the biggest obstacle the World Boxing Organization junior-featherweight champion faced all night. Barrera successfully defended his title and improved to 41-0 with 29 knockouts by stopping Jesse Benavides (40-5-1, 25 knockouts) with 1:45 remaining in the third round.

Junior-lightweight Jorge Paez wants to be taken seriously. At age 30, the former two-time world champion says he's done with the heavy drinking, done with the flashy cars, done with life in the fast lane. Instead, he's now driving himself toward a shot at another title. He's gotten rid of his trainers, pruned his bloated entourage to a precious few and whipped his body into shape. The general reaction? Often a yawn or a snicker. Some people just don't take Paez seriously.

When he came here for the first time in 1962, Angel Cordero Jr. couldn't appreciate much of the glamour and charm of Saratoga. He shared a room with four race track workers as he tried to establish himself as a jockey. He was having no success. "I had to ask other exercise boys for money so I could eat," he recalled. "It was very embarrassing for me. I made a promise to myself that if I came back, I would make a success of riding at that meeting."

This is America, after all, so it is only fair that one of the regulated can once in a while be one of the regulators. And so it seemed altogether fitting last week that Gov. Pete Wilson appointed former world welterweight champion Carlos Palomino, 41, to the California Athletic Commission. Palomino was a late-1970s champion who became even more famous for his beer commercials a few years later. Palomino's has been a class act, all the way. He was a champion who defended his title seven times.
