Loreto Garza and Vinny Pazienza, two junior-welterweights who aspire to fight super-lightweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez, will meet in a small-scale pay-per-view boxing show at Arco Arena tonight. Garza and Pazienza figure to attract about 8,000 tonight, which would figure as California's--and Sacramento's--second-largest boxing gate this year. On Sept. 22, Garza stablemate Tony Lopez drew a state-record gate of $601,000 and a crowd of 15,000-plus when he beat Jorge Paez at Arco Arena.

Loreto Garza and Vinny Pazienza, two junior-welterweights who aspire to fight super-lightweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez, will meet in a small-scale pay-per-view boxing show at Arco Arena tonight. Actually, Pazienza, should he beat Garza, might even settle for a fight with Ray Mancini in Atlantic City, N.J., for North America's "Italian-American championship." There's no such title, but in boxing all you need to do to create one is print up the posters.

A lot of people say they don't understand boxing--or boxers. Why is that? Vinny Pazienza, former International Boxing Federation lightweight champion, who hinted that he would announce his retirement at a news conference Friday in Cranston, R.I., turned the tables on the media and announced that he will fight on. The Associated Press reported that Pazienza's cryptic bobbing and weaving fooled even his family and close associates.

Hector Camacho won most of the early rounds, began to tire at the midway point and then held off a strong-finishing Greg Haugen to win a junior-welterweight grudge match Saturday night on a split decision. Camacho, who lost a close decision to Haugen in February in Las Vegas, this time won before a crowd of about 5,000 at the Reno/Sparks Convention Center. Camacho lost the first time on a split decision because of a foul, and nearly blew this one, too, on a foul.
