McDonald's versus Burger King. Hertz and Avis. IBM and Apple Computer. All are great corporate rivalries. And in the hotel trade wars, Marriott and Hilton--two of the nation's leading luxury hotel companies--constantly struggle to put more roofs over the heads of more sleeping executives. Now there's a hotel battle under way in Woodland Hills. For 3 1/2 years, the 473-room Warner Center Marriott hotel, which is owned by an arm of the Washington-based Marriott Corp.

Boxing is back at the Warner Center--for now, at least. This time with some new faces and, perhaps, more pizazz. Oxnard promoter Robert Valdez, still on his feet trying to eke out a career in the fight game, climbed into a new arena this week when he announced his next program will take place Aug. 15 at L.A. Fitness Center in Woodland Hills.

The premiere of a low-budget Los Angeles Police Department videotape on how to prevent carjackings and other auto-related crimes went off without a hitch Monday, unmarred by the chilly reception West Valley officers received when they were asked to leave two properties while filming. "We had a good deal of help from a number of volunteers, and there were plenty of alternate locations," said Officer Russell Long, who produced the 22-minute video.

For most people who live and work in Woodland Hills, life this week returned to some semblance of order after the earthquake's upheaval. After a six-day delay, classes at Pierce College began Monday. The Pierce College gymnasiums, however, were declared unusable. Physical education classes are being held outside when possible.

Having just reread Martinez' article (April 3) on his visit to the new Warner Center Marriott Hotel, I find a disturbing trend in the three major articles that to this date have found their way into what passes for social and society commentary. I withheld my thoughts when Doug Smith cynically reviewed my Annual St. Andrew's Day Celebration and later did an unadulterated hatchet job on the Valley Cultural Society's efforts at improving our community. After all, he is entitled to his opinions, and to complain about his views would have appeared self serving, since I host one and actively support the other.

The San Fernando Valley apparently isn't big enough for boxing promoters Peter Broudy and Roy Englebrecht. So, Englebrecht is throwing in the towel. Englebrecht, who for five years has presented a successful monthly fight card at the Irvine Marriott hotel, has pulled out of an agreement to stage similar shows at the Warner Center Marriott, largely because of Broudy's monthly program at the Reseda Country Club.

Professional boxing, absent from the Valley since June, suddenly has returned, with two arenas in which monthly bouts will be staged. The Reseda Country Club, once home to budding pros Michael Nunn and Rafael Ruelas, on Nov. 21 will host its first fight in more than three years with a program headlined by heavyweight Lionel Butler of Los Angeles.

Boxing will return to the Warner Center Marriott in 1997. Roy Englebrecht, an Orange County promoter with a history of success presenting bouts at the Irvine Marriott hotel, announced Tuesday he has signed a one-year contract with the Woodland Hills hotel to promote monthly bouts beginning Jan. 9. Englebrecht, promoter at Irvine since 1992, replaces Gerrie Coetzee, who quit promoting fights at Warner Center in June because of financial reasons.

An Orange County boxing promoter with a history of success presenting bouts at the Irvine Marriott hotel is negotiating with Warner Center Marriott officials about promoting fights at the Woodland Hills hotel throughout 1997. Roy Englebrecht, promoter at Irvine since 1992, said Wednesday he is seeking a one-year contract with Warner Center to promote bouts on a monthly basis.

He has no desire to rejoin the ranks of boxing's heavyweights. Been there. Done that. Gerrie Coetzee, once world heavyweight boxing champion, would settle for moderate success in his new career as a boxing promoter. "I don't want to be a Don King or a Bob Arum-type promoter," Coetzee said. "If I can make Woodland Hills a top venue, that would be fine by me." He appears to be moving in the right direction.

He was raised in Sherman Oaks, played baseball and football at Van Nuys High, and graduated from Cal State Northridge with a degree in political science. Peter Broudy has roots there, but that's not why he has brought his business to the San Fernando Valley. As president of Celebrity Boxing, Broudy set up the sweet science in the upscale environs of the Warner Center Marriott Grand Ballroom last year for a better reason: He knew the venture would succeed. First and foremost, beyond any nostalgic calling, Broudy made his decision based on his business instincts.

Did you hear about the woman whose boyfriend visited the restroom Wednesday night during the second bout of a five-fight boxing card at the Warner Center Marriott? She didn't see him again until Thursday morning. True story. One of several such stories. Professional boxing's initial foray into the upscale neighborhood of the West Valley was, by most accounts, a smashing success.

Peter Broudy surveyed the Grand Ballroom at the Warner Center Marriott on Tuesday and decided he liked what he saw. And why not? The place has chandeliers larger than many compact cars and room enough to hold a boxing ring plus a crowd of about 1,200 fans. Nice, Broudy said. Almost as nice--but not quite--as the rest of the neighborhood. "You have those big, tall business buildings," Broudy said, "with lots of businessmen."
