If you happen to be watching the main event of tonight's pay-per-view boxing card from Phoenix and think someone left a pair of broomsticks in the ring leaning against the ropes, adjust your television. The broomsticks are Michael Carbajal and Robinson Cuesta. The two, perhaps the skinniest men in professional boxing, will meet in a scheduled 12-round bout for Carbajal's International Boxing Federation light-flyweight championship. Cuesta, of Panama, has been the IBF's No.

One man has been financially bankrupt. The other has faced charges that he is morally bankrupt. But in the world of boxing, neither problem is necessarily a reason for exclusion. And sure enough, these two men have now locked arms and are marching back into the ring together. Donald Trump and Don King are trying to keep the comeback of former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson on track, right along with their own.

The lightweight division, the one that gave boxing some of its most legendary names--Joe Gans, Battling Nelson, Ad Wolgast, Joe Rivers, Henry Armstrong, Carlos Ortiz and Roberto Duran--is shooting off sparks again.
