A little-known British boxer named Lloyd Honeyghan lifted the undisputed world welterweight championship from the battered head of the previously unbeaten Curry at Caesars Atlantic City. OK, how big an upset was it?

British boxing officials will investigate claims that former world welterweight champion Lloyd Honeyghan was involved in a locker-room fight only minutes after winning the Commonwealth light-middleweight title.

Lloyd Honeyghan looked Donald Curry in the eye before the fight began Saturday night and thought he saw Curry's undisputed welterweight championship as his own. Then the 26-year-old Briton, considered an outclassed underdog, went out and took the title from the previously unbeaten Curry, generally considered to be one of the best fighters in the world. Honeyghan shook Curry on several occasions, then ripped a cut over his left eye in the sixth round.

Tomas Molinares of Colombia landed a wild roundhouse punch apparently after the bell sounded ending the sixth round, knocking out Marlon Starling to win the World Boxing Assn. welterweight title Friday night. The punch seemed to catch Starling somewhat off guard, and he quickly fell to the canvas as referee Joe Cortez began to count, while many at ringside questioned whether the blow had landed in time. Starling, whose record fell to 43-5-1, never made an attempt to get up and was counted out.

This one is for fatherhood. One boxer will fight tonight because, he says, "my son is my life. My son is everything." The other boasts of having fathered, as nearly as he can figure, five children by three women. It's Marlon Starling and Lloyd Honeyghan tonight at Caesars Palace, the featured matchup of an HBO welterweight doubleheader. Starling is seeking Honeyghan's World Boxing Council welterweight championship.
