Last October, at a hotel meeting room in Oklahoma City, a USA Amateur Boxing Federation committee named Ken Adams coach of the 1988 United States Olympic boxing team.

This time, no one will be smiling, least of all Adams. His job will be on the line. A 47-year-old master sergeant from Ft. Hood, Tex.

Leonard, in a news conference at Caesars Palace, was also angry with USA/Amateur Boxing Federation officials' criticism of his "Sugar Ray Leonard Boxing Club" T-shirt stands at last week's Olympic trials tournament at Concord, Calif.
