Lamon Brewster has already taken the first swing of tonight's fight against Wladimir Klitschko. He threw it last month at a news conference in Los Angeles, aiming it not at Klitschko but at a microphone. Poised to address the media, an emotional Brewster, tears in his eyes, sent the microphone flying, then fled the dais. The obvious reaction would be to take note of this fight's promoter and figure it's yet another Don King stunt. In this case, however, King's histrionics weren't necessary.

Ten months ago, in the despair of a hard-fought unanimous-decision loss to then-world welterweight champion Miguel Cotto, Pomona's Shane Mosley admitted retirement crossed his mind. He resolved instead to fight on, insisting he'd restrict his future bouts only to major events. Mosley (44-5, 37 knockouts) was pitted in a non-title fight against another veteran beaten by Cotto, Zab Judah. But when Judah was injured in a training camp tantrum, Mosley's May bout was canceled.

Vernon Forrest stood on the ropes in the corner, arms raised toward the ceiling of Orleans Arena on Saturday night, and waited for ring announcer Jimmy Lennon to certify Forrest had indeed beaten Ricardo Mayorga.

USA Boxing, trying to pick itself off the canvas, has embraced the wisdom of the sport's most celebrated trainer. Freddie Roach has begun his work as a consultant to the downtrodden U.S. boxing program, which will stage its 2012 Olympic-qualifying trials from July 31 to Aug. 6 in Mobile, Ala. "I'm willing to listen to whatever he has to say," said Rau'shee Warren, 24, of Cincinnati, a returning Olympian from the 2008 U.S. team, which failed...

LAS VEGAS - In what would be a main event on almost any other card, world junior-welterweight champion Danny Garcia of Philadelphia will fight Lucas Matthysse of Argentina just before the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Saul “Canelo” Alvarez fight Saturday night at MGM Grand. The bout is a fight-of-the-year candidate, matching unbeaten Garcia's strong boxing skills against the power punching of Matthysse. For added effect, there's Garcia's controversial father-trainer Angel Garcia, who Wednesday told reporters he would cut off his own head if his son lost to Matthysse, and then Thursday expressed outrage at those supporting Matthysse (34-2, 32 knockouts)

The official end of hope for a super-fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. came Sunday when Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum announced he had signed a deal to stage an alternate Pacquiao bout against Joshua Clottey on March 13 at Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Texas. Arum said Pacquiao will earn somewhere between $10 million and $20 million for the welterweight fight against Clottey (35-3), who lost a split decision to Miguel Cotto in his most recent fight in June. Cotto later suffered a 12th-round technical knockout loss to Pacquiao in November, as the Filipino star won his record seventh weight-division world title and probably clinched for the second straight time the honor of fighter of the year.

He clowned, he rabbit punched, he hit after the bell, he hit while holding and it cost Ricardo Mayorga on Saturday night. Not one, but perhaps two huge fights. Not one, but three belts. With referee Tony Orlando subtracting two critical points from Mayorga, the Nicaraguan fighter lost a majority decision to Cory Spinks in front of 12,346 in one of eight title fights held at Boardwalk Hall. Mayorga had already signed to fight Shane Mosley on March 13, contingent on Mayorga winning Saturday night.

This was supposed to be Timothy Bradley's weekend. Instead, the unbeaten WBC and WBO junior-welterweight champion from Palm Springs has been torched by critics for not accepting a Saturday title unification date against Amir Khan and a $1.5-million-plus payday. "I'm not hurting for money," Bradley said this week. "I've saved my money. I'm in a good position. " Britain's Khan, who'll instead fight veteran Zab Judah in an HBO-televised title bout at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, has accused Bradley (27-0, 11 knockouts)

A prestigious neurology clinic has launched an unprecedented brain study of professional fighters with the goal of advancing research to improve various treatments for brain damage. "We know what permanent brain damage looks like in its final stages, but we know so little about what causes it and what happens during cumulative trauma," said Maureen Peckman of the Cleveland Clinic. Peckman is coordinating the new study between the clinic's Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas and officials with the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
