Vaughn Bean is a heavyweight contender whose success is built on failure. The International Boxing Federation's top-ranked challenger will take a 32-1 record into his title bid against Evander Holyfield on Saturday night in the Georgia Dome, but only seven of those 33 opponents had winning records at the time they fought Bean. In fact, the records of Bean's opponents, excluding Michael Moorer, at the time they fought him, totaled 152-294-14, according to Fight Fax Inc.

Michael Moorer didn't do anything to please the crowd or his corner. About the only thing he did right Saturday night against Vaughn Bean was hang on to his International Boxing Federation heavyweight title. Moorer fought cautiously and defensively against an opponent many thought shouldn't even have been in the ring, barely keeping his piece of the heavyweight title with a majority decision over Bean. The fight ended with boos from the crowd after 12 lethargic rounds at the Las Vegas Hilton.

When Teddy Atlas was Michael Moorer's trainer, Atlas said it was a constant struggle to get Moorer to work. Moorer says he likes his new trainer, Freddie Roach, because "Freddie allows me to be me." Given such free rein, has Moorer been working hard enough? The answer will come Saturday night when he meets Evander Holyfield in a heavyweight unification bout at the Thomas & Mack Center.

For Michael Moorer, it remains a moment frozen in time, a right hand that was as beautiful in its simplicity as it was devastating to its recipient. Unfortunately for Moorer, he was on the other end of the punch that made George Foreman the oldest heavyweight champion ever. And it may be some time before the punch ceases to define his boxing career. "All they remember is the knockout," Moorer said. "They don't remember the nine or 10 rounds I was whipping his butt."

Sportswriters would be able to retire much earlier if they got a dollar every time an athlete questioned their credentials, pointing out they have never played the game. Then there are the coaches. According to a recent Dallas Morning News survey, 12 of the 26 coaches in the NHL have never played at that level.
