Eddie Chambers understands what it's like to watch a heavyweight title disappear in a one-sided defeat. "You have to sit around afterward and get your mind right," Chambers said. "It was on my mind for months. You think about it all the time, it's like a little fly bugging you."

Michelle Wie shot a seven-under 64 — playing her first nine holes in seven-under 28 — to take the second-round lead in the Northwest Arkansas Championship in Rogers, Ark. Wie, trying for her second straight victory, had the lowest nine-hole score on the LPGA Tour this year. She finished at 10 under Saturday, three strokes ahead of Juli Inkster (66), Yani Tseng (68) and Na Yeon Choi (68). Wie started her round on No. 10 and birdied five of her first seven holes.

There was no consensus on who won the first fight between Samuel Peter and James Toney. And, not surprisingly, the two heavyweights are disagreeing again. "I won the first one, and I'll teach him another lesson," Peter said. "They stole the first fight from me, but they won't again," Toney said. Tonight, someone finally will be proved right.

On a Nokia Theatre stage where the performers are expected to entertain at a high level, heavyweights Eddie Chambers and Samuel Peter did a little of that Friday night. One might argue the "high level" part. But if the cozy crowd in the theater seating was expecting to witness the resurrection of the long-buried heavyweight division, it certainly went away disappointed. Chambers won the 10-round fight in a split decision that was hard to argue.

NEW YORK -- Samuel Peter withstood three early knockdowns to pull away from Jameel McCline and keep the WBC heavyweight championship Saturday night. Peter, nicknamed the "Nigerian Nightmare," was living through a bad dream in the second and third rounds. But hedominated the latter rounds for a unanimous decision that was heartily booed by the Madison Square Garden crowd.

Samuel Peter never liked the idea of fighting James Toney again, insisting that he clearly beat him the first time around. After what happened Saturday night in their second fight, Toney might not want another rematch. Peter beat Toney for the second time in four months, getting a unanimous decision in a World Boxing Council heavyweight elimination bout and perhaps the chance to fight Oleg Maskaev for a championship.

The body seems immovable, the confidence unshakable, the emotions untouchable. Getting past the game face worn by heavyweight Samuel Peter can be as difficult for a reporter as his devastating power has proven to be for most opponents. Ask him about fighting less than two weeks after his mother died in 2004 and Peter says simply, "I loved her." Ask him how he got into boxing and Peter says, "A coach saw me and liked me."

Ecuador has arrested a U.S. Embassy attache in the fatal shooting of a motorist and asked Washington to revoke his diplomatic immunity from prosecution, government officials said Friday. Samuel Peter Karmilowicz, identified as a civil attache by the U.S. Embassy in Quito, the capital, is accused of killing Ecuadorean Pablo Vicente Jaramillo in a road-rage incident early Thursday. Police said Karmilowicz's car lightly collided with a taxi carrying Jaramillo.

Officials on Tuesday said the body discovered in the wheel well of a jumbo jet at Los Angeles International Airport earlier this week was that of South African Samuel Peter Benjamin, 17. The Los Angeles County coroner's office conducted an autopsy Tuesday but was unable to determine the time or the cause of death, said Craig Harvey, the office's operations chief. Additional tests were ordered, and results should take up to eight weeks, he said.
