Live from Hacienda Heights, on public access television, we now bring you "Thee Mr. Richard Duran Show." (Cue intro music.) Three cameras swing around to Richard Duran, the host, who is looking sharp in a tuxedo. "Mr. Duran," as he is known, bends his right knee and dips into a classic lean-back pachuco pose before screaming: "San Gabriel Valley! We're back with a vengeance! That's right!" The audience, seated in two rows of metal folding chairs, breaks into cheers and applause.

Old fighters never die. They just make comebacks. So it is that Roberto Duran, pushing 35, and a husk of his former greatness, is in the ring again. Evidently, it will take more than a two-round knockout to keep him down. Duran, who last engaged our attention when he was flattened by Thomas Hearns last year, is coming back to fight Robbie Sims on the so-called Triple Hitter at Las Vegas June 23.

Ray Mancini has had two fights since 1984 and lost them both. Yet tonight, he is matched with Greg Haugen in a pay-per-view boxing show for which he could earn $550,000. The reason has more to do with Mancini's appeal to Reno fight fans than anything at stake. Mancini is big box office here. His three previous Reno fights--and never mind that he won one of the three--grossed live gate totals of $2.2 million.

Rio Mesa High's baseball team was without its best batter, but that doesn't mean the Spartans weren't a big hit in Friday's Channel League game against Hueneme. Rio Mesa pounded out 13 hits to defeat Hueneme, 8-2, at Rio Mesa and remain atop the league standings. Rio Mesa (11-5-1, 4-1-1 in league play) is tied with Ventura for first. Buena, whose game against Oxnard on Friday was postponed because of a muddy field, falls a half-game back, while Hueneme (9-7-1, 3-2-1) dropped a game off the pace.

Tony Lopez of Sacramento and Brian Mitchell of South Africa fought 12 exciting rounds, each trying to unify the junior-lightweight boxing championship Friday night at Arco Arena. When it was over, they had achieved nothing. The judges called it a draw. Lopez won the early rounds, but Mitchell was clearly stronger at the finish, winning the last four rounds on The Times card, which also had it even.
