Mike Tyson probably will begin a work-release program at a Maryland jail by June and be ready to fight in August, his advisor, Shelley Finkel, said Wednesday. Finkel said he was looking at German Axel Schulz, among others, as Tyson's first opponent. The fight would almost certainly be in Las Vegas. Under the work-release program, Tyson would train during the day and return to jail at night. Finkel said it was unclear what restrictions would be placed on Tyson traveling to fight.

Mike Tyson, jailed since February for assaulting two motorists, was granted parole Friday and is scheduled for release no later than June 4. The Maryland Parole Commission voted, 5-1, to grant the former heavyweight champion his release, contingent upon approval by Indiana authorities. The exact date of Tyson's release will depend on how soon Indiana acts. The commission said it granted parole because it would guarantee that Tyson would be supervised upon his release.

Duke, which has three starters back from the team that fell one game shy of the Final Four last season, was voted No. 1 in the Associated Press college basketball poll Thursday, the fourth time the Blue Devils have held the top spot in the preseason rankings. This is the first time, though, for Duke since 1991-92, when the Blue Devils stayed on top all season on the way to a second consecutive national championship. Their other preseason No. 1 rankings were in 1978-79 and 1988-89.

Mike Tyson was given his freedom Monday. He will have to regain respect and credibility on his own. Tyson, the former two-time heavyweight boxing champion, was paroled from a Montgomery County jail in Rockville, Md., after serving 3 1/2 months of a one-year sentence for assault. There is no question that he plans to get back into the ring, but that is not expected to happen until fall, perhaps as late as December.

Ever since Terry Norris defeated Sugar Ray Leonard two years ago, he's heard the boxing world call him one of its best fighters, pound for pound. But Norris is beginning to wonder when he starts cashing in on that reputation. Norris said Wednesday, just three days before his super welterweight title fight with Carl Daniels, that he is frustrated enough to start looking for a new manager.

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.

One season after he choked his coach, anti-hero Latrell Sprewell has become hero. While playing a leading role in the New York Knicks' resurgence, he has been rewarded by fans at Madison Square Garden chanting his name, newspaper headlines anointing him "Spree the Great" and a shoe contract, accompanied by a commercial claiming he personifies the American Dream.

For your listening pleasure, the young heavyweight unbeaten in 21 pro fights will slip into the soft, seductive voice of Ronald Reagan and invite you to join him and Nancy for Thanksgiving dinner. Without much coaxing, Riddick Bowe also does Richard Pryor, Stevie Wonder and some others -- and can recite The Legend of Cassius Clay as Cassius Clay. This has been, for the 23-year-old Bowe, as much hindrance as help.
