It was an easy tuneup for Evander Holyfield, and the top-ranked heavyweight contender hopes it was his last. "Evander is going to fight in the fall against Buster Douglas, I guarantee it," promoter Dan Duva said after Holyfield knocked down Seamus McDonagh three times and stopped him in the fourth round at the Convention Center Friday night. During the post-fight news conference, James Binns, attorney for the World Boxing Assn., said what Holyfield and Duva wanted to hear.

Generally speaking, Irishmen love to tell stories. And given a few more years, Seamus McDonagh might be a match for any of the fabled raconteurs of the Emerald Isle. Only 27 years old, McDonagh has already lived enough for a miniseries or two, and Friday night at the Trump Plaza he's co-starring in a Rocky-type production that can only enhance the adventure.

There are nine bouts tonight in the Georgia Golden Gloves Championships at the Omni, but the main attraction is Evander Holyfield. Holyfield, the 27-year-old Atlantan who got his start in the Gloves ranks 19 years ago, is the No. 1 heavyweight contender. He expects to fight heavyweight champion Buster Douglas for the title in September and will meet Seamus McDonagh June 1 in Atlantic City, N.J.

The Lazers had plenty of chances to overtake the Wichita Wings Sunday night, but in the end things turned out as they usually do and they were beaten, 5-4, before a Forum crowd of 3,695. After the Lazers had failed to score on five consecutive power-plays, Stuart Lee took a long pass from Beto and headed the ball past Wichita goalkeeper Seamus McDonagh during the sixth power-play to tie the score at 4-4 with 2:17 to play.

When the Lazers hold a lead late in the game, they have a better chance of winning than most other Major Indoor Soccer League teams. Lazer Coach Peter Wall agrees, and the fact that the Lazers have scored the fewest goals in the league and allowed the third-fewest makes it easy to understand. In Tuesday night's game against the Wichita Wings, the Lazers took a 3-1 lead half-way into the third quarter.

A sign of the changing times: Two years ago, a local pizza restaurant started a promotion, offering each ticket-holder a free pizza if the Sockers scored eight goals in a game and won. The promotion was discontinued last year but reborn Saturday night, when the Sockers played host to Wichita. Only now, the offer was free pizza for six goals. It appeared to be good timing. As Socker Coach Ron Newman said: "There's been a rumor going around lately that we can't score goals."

In what Coach Peter Wall said may have been "our best performance this season as far as dominating the game in all aspects," the Lazers got two goals and two assists from Willie Molano, two goals from Batata and some timely defense to defeat the Wichita Wings, 6-4, in a Major Indoor Soccer League game Saturday night at the Forum. With a crowd of 5,441 looking on, the Lazers turned a close game into a relatively easy win with three goals in the third quarter.

The Sockers have lost their share of important games at home, but they rarely come up flat in those key games. But that's what happened in in their 3-2 loss to the Wichita Wings Wednesday night at the San Diego Sports Arena. With the Sockers playing with a sixth attacker, San Diego forward Njego Pesa scored on a right-footer to make it 3-2 with 2:05 left in the game. But it was too little, too late. "There was no aggression in our game," said Socker Coach Ron Newman. "I could sense it.

Once the white lights finally came on at the Sports Arena Friday night, the Wichita Wings quickly began seeing red. After a 15-minute delay at the start of the game because the overhead lights malfunctioned, the Sockers wasted no time turning on the red light behind the Wichita goal. And turning it on, and on, and on... When the Sockers' soccer clinic was completed, San Diego and goalkeeper Zoltan Toth had registered a 9-0 victory in front of 9,561 fans.
