Re "Safety is a home-grown product," July 7 The city of Irvine sounds like an episode of "The Twilight Zone." As one resident stated, "It's who will follow the rules who we want." To me, it sounds more like: If you don't think like us, you're not welcome. I would be more afraid of living in Irvine, the city of cookie-cutter houses and perfect landscapes, than in the real world. At least in the real world, I can paint my house any color I want without it being a crime. And yes, I too can walk alone at night without being afraid in my neighborhood.

He's the best fighter you never heard of, and he's also the most unlikely looking champion anyone ever saw. Raul Perez is so skinny he's hardly a whisper. He has legs that belong on a deer. To look at him, you'd make him even-money with Pee-Wee Herman. But make no mistake about Raul Perez. He's the World Boxing Council's bantamweight champion, has a record of 45-1 and will defend his title for the fifth time Monday night at the Forum, against Gerardo Martinez.

California's required neurological examination for professional boxers, knocked from ringpost to ringpost by managers and promoters since its inception in 1986, nearly cost the Forum a world championship fight Monday. Raul Perez, the World Boxing Council bantamweight champion, failed the exam twice last week and didn't pass it until his third try, at mid-afternoon Monday, hours before he was to fight Gaby Canizales at the Forum.

Prison for not reporting a few hundred dollars in tips ["Prison Terms Affirm IRS Campaign on Tip Income," Sept. 28]? Meanwhile chief executives and major corporations hide billions of taxable income in offshore accounts? Nothing's changed about the IRS. They're nothing more than a schoolyard bully going after the weak and defenseless, while the real scofflaws hide behind an army of lawyers. Raul Perez Chino

Raul Perez retained his World Boxing Council bantamweight title for the seventh time Monday when he knocked out Candelario Carmona in the eighth round of a scheduled 12-round bout. Perez, of Tijuana, floored Carmona, of Acapulco, with his left hand. Carmona, rated the No. 2 contender by the WBC, was counted out by referee Guillermo Ayon at 2:17 in the round. Both fighters weighed 118 pounds. Perez, 23, is now 47-1-2, with 30 wins by knockout.

Lorraine Knopf (letter, Feb. 12) makes mention that private school teachers are not required to have the same training or accreditation as public school teachers. As a parent sending three children to parochial school, my response is, "Thank goodness they don't." Because then the school my children attend would be just as bad--if not worse--than public schools. As for the Stanford 9 test that public schools made such a big deal about last year, my children have been taking that test for years.

The Forum's reputation as a disaster area for boxing champions held firm Monday night, as Raul Perez of Tijuana dethroned World Boxing Assn. junior-featherweight champion Luis Mendoza of Colombia. In the past 11 months, there have been seven title fights at the Forum and the challenger has won six times. Perez was stepping up from the bantamweight ranks, where he had defended the World Boxing Council's bantamweight crown eight times before losing it to Greg Richardson at the Forum last February.

Boxing's recent string of upsets continued Monday night at the Forum, where little-known Greg Richardson upset one of the sport's dominant champions, Raul Perez. Richardson, a 116 1/2-pound Youngstown, Ohio, bantamweight nearly six inches shorter than the 5-foot-11, heavily favored Perez (118), won a unanimous decision before 5,949.
