There was no consensus on who won the first fight between Samuel Peter and James Toney. And, not surprisingly, the two heavyweights are disagreeing again. "I won the first one, and I'll teach him another lesson," Peter said. "They stole the first fight from me, but they won't again," Toney said. Tonight, someone finally will be proved right.

Samuel Peter never liked the idea of fighting James Toney again, insisting that he clearly beat him the first time around. After what happened Saturday night in their second fight, Toney might not want another rematch. Peter beat Toney for the second time in four months, getting a unanimous decision in a World Boxing Council heavyweight elimination bout and perhaps the chance to fight Oleg Maskaev for a championship.

Mike Tyson has been given an ultimatum by Staples Center president Tim Leiweke: Sign up by 1 p.m. today or risk being left at the curb. A news conference will be held at Staples beginning at that hour to announce a June 21 fight card featuring heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis against Kirk Johnson. The semi-main event, as big an attraction if not bigger, was supposed to be Tyson against Oleg Maskaev in a non-title bout. It still might be.

A two-year, $4.5-million contract wasn't the only thing Brett Hull got from Phoenix. The NHL team announced Tuesday that it would unretire the No. 9 Winnipeg Jet jersey worn by Bobby Hull, Brett's father, so his son can wear it. "I remember as a kid watching my father play in Winnipeg and marveled at the things he could do, and I hope I can continue that tradition," Hull said. The Hulls are the only father-son combination to each score more than 600 goals.

Heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis sued promoter Don King and former champion Mike Tyson on Thursday for $385 million. The suit claims King used death threats and bribery to prevent Tyson from fighting on a June 21 card at Staples Center as part of a doubleheader with Lewis, to prevent Tyson from signing a contract for a rematch with Lewis and to sever Tyson's ties with his management team. Tyson is considering a King offer to sign with him, according to a source close to the negotiations.

The World Boxing Council, responding to a protest by Dan Goossen, James Toney's promoter, Wednesday ordered an immediate rematch of the Toney-Samuel Peter heavyweight fight held earlier this month at Staples Center. After Toney lost a split decision, he and his handlers complained about the lopsided scores of the two judges who gave the decision to Peter. Both Alejandro Rochin and Richard Flaherty had Peter winning 116-111 despite the fact Peter had a point deducted by referee Raul Caiz Sr.
