Still punching with hands of stone but burdened with legs of granite in the final seven rounds, Roberto Duran left the ring Saturday night an exhausted, disgusted unanimous-decision loser to Vinny Pazienza. At 43 and the underdog, Duran was good for half a fight before 10,149 at the MGM Grand, snapping off more hard left jabs and brutal overhand rights to the head in the first six rounds than almost anybody thought he could.

Boxing trainer Kevin Rooney took a serious pay cut when Mike Tyson banished him. Rooney, who made $1.5 million when he worked Tyson's corner against Michael Spinks, earned $1,500 when he worked a fight last weekend for Vinny Pazienza, a former lightweight champion. "Sure, it's different," Rooney told Newsday's Wallace Matthews. "Vinny Pazienza is not Mike Tyson. Nobody's like Mike Tyson. But Vinny Pazienza is a good fighter, and I think I can help him be a better fighter." After Pazienza stopped Jake Carollo at 1:57 of the second round, Rooney raised his fighter's hand overhead, as he had done with Tyson.
