Rogelio Montenegro, a previously unbeaten boxing sensation from Mexico City, was taken to Northridge Hospital Medical Center with a possible head injury Tuesday night after being knocked out in the seventh round of a welterweight bout at the Country Club in Reseda. "He was nauseous and dizzy and in bad shape, but the hospital said he's OK," said ring physician Robert Karns, who attended Montenegro and said the boxer likely would undergo a CAT scan at the hospital. "He's up and around."

Orlin Norris of San Diego knocked out Danny Wofford of Spartanburg, S.C., at 1:59 of the 10th round Tuesday night in their heavyweight bout at The Country Club. Norris, who weighed 227 pounds, dominated the bout from start to finish. However, he was unable to floor Wofford until a right uppercut put Wofford on one knee in the 10th. Wofford got up and tried to hang on, but when he slipped to the canvas, referee Lou Filippo stopped the bout, which was scheduled for 10 rounds.

It was 1941, on a hot summer afternoon in Los Angeles. The Main Street Gym, 321 South Main St., was a busy, noisy place. The grimy little gym resounded with the sounds of sweating fighters whacking away at bags, and the clicking sound their jump ropes made on the dirty wooden floor. Boxers snorted as they threw punches at mirrors. Against one wall, by the heavy punching bags, an old man in a suit sat on a bench and leaned on his cane.
