A retired boxing matchmaker, a California Athletic Commission staff member, a promoter and a fight manager all testified against Marty Denkin, a former state boxing official, at his appeals hearing Tuesday. Denkin, fired by the state in June on 1989 on charges that he accepted money and jewelry for granting boxing favors, is asking to be reinstated. Tuesday, he heard Los Angeles promoter Rogelio Robles testify that he gave $2,000 to Denkin as "a gift" for Denkin's son, who was getting married.

Faced with looping hooks and frequent low blows, defending champion Antonio Esparragoza tried to cut through the attack of challenger Marcos Villasana in a 12-round World Boxing Assn. featherweight title bout Thursday night in the Sports Arena. But Esparragoza, perhaps dulled by an 11-month layoff, was not able to put away Villasana with short, sharp punches. Finally, nobody won. Esparragoza, of Venezuela, held onto his title with split-decision draw against Villasana, of Mexico.

Venezuela won for only the second time in 47 matches at the Copa America on Saturday, moving to the verge of the quarterfinals with a 2-0 victory over Peru. Earlier, two-time World Cup champion Uruguay struggled past a relatively weak rival, Bolivia, 1-0. Today, soccer powerhouse Brazil takes on Chile in Maturin, attempting to recover from its humbling opening loss against Mexico, 2-0. Ecuador and Mexico face off in the other Group B match.

Featherweight Marco Antonio Barrera has an agreement in principle to join forces with Oscar De La Hoya, a significant union of two of boxing's most powerful figures. "We have formed a partnership with Golden Boy Promotions," said Barrera, referring to De La Hoya's promotional organization. It's not as simple as that because Barrera is still in the midst of legal proceedings to break away from his previous promoter, John Jackson of Forum Boxing, and his previous manager, Ricardo Maldonado.

San Diego's Rodney Jones didn't expect his tuneup for a junior middleweight world title fight to come against a light heavyweight. But when Honolulu's Jaime Lerma showed up 13 pounds overweight, Jones decided to take the risk. "I knew he'd be heavy, tough and strong, but I wanted to stay busy," Jones said.

Some thought Erik Morales won. Some thought Marco Antonio Barrera won. But of this there can be no argument: boxing won. Saturday night's super-bantamweight title match at the Mandalay Bay Events Center, won by Morales on a split decision, was an entertaining and brutal brawl, the action furious and relentless from the opening to the final bell. This fight would match up with the best boxing has had to offer in recent years.

Phillip N'dou entered the ring Saturday night wearing luminous white trunks that gleamed under the Staples Center lights. The South African junior-lightweight left with them covered in crimson. Good thing for N'dou that the blood was not his. The speedy and hard-hitting N'dou punished a game but badly outclassed Yoni Vargas early and often, opening a nasty cut over his left eye midway through the first round on the undercard of the Lennox Lewis-Vitali Klitschko heavyweight championship fight.

Harold Rossfields Smith, who served nearly six years in federal prison for bank embezzlement, has quietly obtained a California boxing manager's license. Smith, a high-rolling boxing promoter in Southern California a decade ago, was convicted of embezzling $21.3 million from Wells Fargo Bank. His conviction involved 29 counts of fraud, embezzlement, conspiracy and interstate transportation of stolen securities. At the time, federal prosecutors called it the biggest computer fraud case in U.S.
