Cuba's highly regarded boxing team placed six in the semifinals, but still came away disappointed Wednesday, losing four bouts. The first Cuban to lose was 6-foot-8 super-heavyweight Alexis Rubalcaba, who beat up Mukhtarkhan Dildabekov of Kazakhstan in the first round before Dildabekov turned the tables on him and won, 25-12, in the afternoon.

For boxer Marco Antonio Barrera, it's about notches. Tonight's main event at Staples Center is a chance to add one of what he hopes will be seven notches to his newest championship belt. For Rocky Juarez, it's about the belt itself, about the chance to finally be recognized as the best in his division. For Barrera, it's about biding time until he again faces Erik Morales or Manny Pacquiao in another career-defining bout.

Without the Olympics, Rocky Juarez would be just another boxer about to become another notch on the belt of veteran champion Marco Antonio Barrera. Without the Olympics, the Juarez story line for the main event Saturday night at Staples Center would focus on a long-shot challenger from the hard streets of Houston, learning the fight game from his still-living 94-year-old grandfather and getting through his first 26 pro matches with only one loss.

Joe Calzaghe has spent a decade chasing recognition as one of boxing's great world champions. If he adds Mikkel Kessler's World Boxing Council and World Boxing Assn. super-middleweight titles to his World Boxing Organization belt tonight, Calzaghe may finally get the global respect he craves. Unbeaten in 43 fights, including 20 straight WBO victories since taking the title from Chris Eubank in 1997, Calzaghe has been frustrated that he never got the fight he wanted against Roy Jones Jr.

How good is the Olympic boxing class of 2000? It was hard to tell Friday night at the Texas Station casino where Rocky Juarez, Jeff Lacy, and Francisco Bojado were on display. But not for long. All three disposed of questionable opposition in less than a round, each improving to 2-0 as professionals. Juarez, the silver medalist in the featherweight division in the 2000 Games, finished off Mike Jones (0-2) in 44 seconds.

Defending world champion Brian Viloria of the United States built a 6-1 lead after two rounds, then held on for an 8-6 victory over European champion Sergei Kazakov of Russia in a first-round bout at 106 pounds Sunday. The 5-foot-4 Viloria, about four inches shorter than Kazakov, chose to box rather than fight inside, and it paid off for two rounds. Then the taller Kazakov became more aggressive and found the range with his left, whittling Viloria's lead down to 7-4 at the end of three rounds.

Oscar De La Hoya, still stinging from his controversial defeat against Shane Mosley on Sept. 13, was proudly, and defiantly, wearing his promoter's hat on Tuesday. The reason: De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions, which will hold its first pay-per-view show Nov. 22 at the Grand Olympic Auditorium, will go head up against two other boxing shows aimed primarily at Latino fight fans the same night.

It was supposed to be a fight for the World Boxing Council super-welterweight title, but even with no belt at stake, Fernando Vargas sees tonight's bout with former champion Javier Castillejo as a chance to re-establish himself as a top 154-pounder. Vargas' reputation and his career have been hurt in the last five years by losses to Felix Trinidad and Oscar De La Hoya and a positive test for steroid use. It's a chance to "show the world the new me," Vargas, 27, said.
