Until he sent everyone home early in Atlantic City, N.J., two Fridays ago, referee Randy Neumann hadn't been heard from since becoming the answer to one of boxing's trivia questions. The question: Who is the only fighter ever to lose on cuts to Chuck (the Bayonne Bleeder) Wepner? It happened in 1974. Neumann and Wepner fought several times, but on this occasion it was for the New Jersey heavyweight championship.

Arturo Gatti's career came to a painful and bloody end when he was battered by Alfonso Gomez and stopped in the seventh round Saturday night. Fighting at 147 pounds proved to be too much for the two-time world champion, who failed in his bid to regain his place among boxing's top fighters. "Hasta la vista, baby," the 35-year-old Gatti told HBO as blood flowed from his cut lip. "I can't be taking this abuse anymore." A crowd of 9,648 looked on as Gomez punished his former idol.

Giving away 56 pounds and several inches, Chris Byrd survived a second-round knockdown and a bigger man's punch to retain his International Boxing Federation heavyweight title Saturday night on a split decision by the narrowest of margins. As crafty a fighter as the heavyweight division has seen recently, Byrd needed all of his skills to come on strong in the later rounds to win a split 12-round decision over Jameel McCline.

If not near, the end at least is inevitable for the National Football League's new crowd-control rule, according to Phil Jackman of the Baltimore Evening Sun. Writes Jackman: "Tell you what's going to kill that nonsensical anti-noise rule in the NFL. When the networks notice that the home team has lost all its timeouts and they can't slip in commercial after commercial during the usually protracted last two minutes of a half and at the end of a game, wham, it's gone."

The up-and-coming Ukrainian (39-1) knocked down Mercer in the first round and cut him in the fifth, using a powerful left jab that kept the rugged Mercer on the defensive throughout.

Mike Tyson stopped challenger Carl (the Truth) Williams Friday night in a 93-second heavyweight championship fight that ended in a torrent of boos and jeers from the crowd of 11,112 at Atlantic City's Convention Hall. After Tyson decked Williams with a left hook to the jaw, Williams arose at the count of six. The referee, former boxer Randy Neumann, could be seen speaking to Williams, who had briefly closed his eyes after rising. Then Neumann waved his arms, signaling the end of the fight.

It appears that Michael Dokes will receive a big dividend for his loss to Evander Holyfield in Las Vegas last March 11. Don King, heavyweight champion Mike Tyson's promoter, said Thursday night that Dokes is the preferred opponent for the champion's next fight, probably at the Las Vegas Hilton in September or October. King brought Tyson to the Beverly Hills Hotel Thursday to announce that the champion will begin a commercial association with a Japanese auto company today.

In 1991, when he won everyone's trainer-of-the-year award, Alex Sherer demonstrated that boxing, for all its glitzy, heavily promoted, multimillion-dollar shows, still doesn't have much of a foundation. There aren't many good boxing trainers out there: good boxing trainers--solid, back-to-basics, boxing trainers.
