Fox Sports has an AP story where Hasim Rahman, talking about his upcoming fight with James Toney, is quoted as saying:
“I’m not overconfident, I’m very comfortable,” Rahman said. “I don’t take anything away from James Toney, who is a very clever fighter. But we’ve figured out this puzzle.”
He then adds:
“It might go six rounds or less,” Rahman said. “He’ll be a bloody mess in the first round if he stands in front of me.”
Sounds mighty comfortable.

The March 26th mayoral elections in Kiev, Ukraine feature a former heavyweight champion as a canidate - Vitali Klitschko. He is running against 41 other canidates pushing the Orange Revolution ticket - a group he has supported since 2004 when he donned an orange sash on his trunks during a fight against Danny Williams. Klitschko injured his knee during training last November and was forced was to retire and give up his WBC heavyweight title.
