Oscar De La Hoya thought he was attending a Century City news conference Wednesday to promote his Dec. 8 fight against Roman Karmazin of Russia at the Olympic Auditorium. What he discovered when he got there, however, was that there might not even be a fight because of visa problems, although both sides remain hopeful the problem will be solved. Upset that his two trainers, his manager and his doctor have not been allowed into this country, Karmazin is threatening to return to Russia to train.

An interesting thing, this swollen left hand of Oscar De La Hoya's that has caused the postponement of his fight with Fernando Vargas. Too weak to make a fist, it is nonetheless strong enough to wave goodbye. By walking away from the celebrated May 4 neighborhood blockhead party, De La Hoya is sending out stronger signals than Vargas' electronic ankle bracelet. He is telling us he may not be as serious about repairing his reputation as his recent out-of-body boasting indicated.

A week after reinjuring his left hand, Oscar De La Hoya said Wednesday he is sparring again and expects to be at full strength for his Sept. 13 super-welterweight title fight against Shane Mosley in the MGM Grand Garden Arena at Las Vegas.

Kermit Cintron entered Friday night's fight against Jesse Feliciano with a big payday ahead -- a bout next year against Paul "The Punisher" Williams. All he needed to do was dispose of Feliciano and not get hurt. He did one of the two, though just barely. Cintron (29-1, 27 knockouts) successfully defended his International Boxing Federation welterweight championship with an 11th-round technical knockout of Feliciano in the undercard of the Fernando Vargas-Ricardo Mayorga fight at Staples Center.

Roy Jones Jr. was just too fast, even in a fight that happened several years too late. Jones pranced and punched his way to a unanimous decision over Felix Trinidad on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York, dominating a 170-pound matchup between two iconic boxers whose primes are well past. Jones (52-4), the sport's erstwhile pound-for-pound king, taunted the Puerto Rican champion while clowning his way through the early rounds of his first significant victory in four years.

Thursday morning, Howard Rose, chief lieutenant of De La Hoya promoter Jerry Perenchio, called Gary Shaw, Vargas' promoter, to inform him the deal was off. What went wrong? De La Hoya's handlers say Vargas wanted too big a piece of the pie. Vargas' handlers say they were perfectly satisfied with the tentative agreement.

Less than a month before his rematch against Shane Mosley, Oscar De La Hoya has reinjured his left hand sufficiently to suspend sparring sessions, undergo medical tests and wonder if it will cut short his career. De La Hoya, however, vows that his Sept. 13 super-welterweight title fight against Mosley at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena will not be postponed. And both De La Hoya's promoter, Bob Arum, and his physical therapist, Anthony Garcia, are downplaying the severity of the injury.
