For three weeks now, Roberta Cooper Ramo has been in perpetual motion, flying from one meeting to the next, relying on her fax- and modem-equipped PowerBook and her trusty Franklin Planner to keep her in touch and on schedule.

James (Bonecrusher) Smith, battered by an overmatched Kimmuel Odom for two rounds, finally took charge in a wild third round at the Forum Monday night and knocked out Odom before 5,531. Smith is 38 now, and carrying an unsightly 250 pounds, but the former heavyweight champion showed what power boxing can do when you need it the most. For slightly more than two rounds, Smith was looking a bit silly against a blubbery, 238-pound Odom, who came in with a 12-5 record.
