They had their hands raised 400 miles apart, each in front of adoring crowds after emphatic victories that proved one thing. The past really is behind them. Welterweight Miguel Cotto and middleweight Kelly Pavlik answered their first career losses with a pair of stunningly efficient victories in a unique, split-site doubleheader on Saturday night. Finally, two boxers who had been considered among the best in their weight classes can again look forward to bigger things. "This was exactly what Miguel needed for his confidence," said Top Rank boss Bob Arum, who promotes both fighters.

As his Tuesday afternoon media session came to an end, Mike Jones didn't seem to care very much about the location of his next fight. And he has little reason to worry, anyway. After much speculation, Antonio Margarito was granted a boxing license on Tuesday evening by the New York State Athletic Commision. Therefore, Margarito's fight with Miguel Cotto will remain at Madison Square Garden. As will Jones' fight with Sebastian Lujan. The Philadelphia welterweight will face Argentina's Lujan on the undercard of the Dec. 3 Margarito-Cotto pay-per-view event.

THE 26TH EPISODE of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal's compelling rivalry was one of their most one-sided. Federer took exactly 1 hour to complete a 6-3, 6-0 victory yesterday in London, qualifying for the semifinals of the ATP World Tour Finals with his most comprehensive victory over the Spaniard. Pinned behind the baseline, Nadal found Federer's forehand unplayable. From 2-2 in the first set, Federer won 10 of the next 11 games. He finished with 28 winners to Nadal's four.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry's re-election campaign said yesterday that he's sponsoring Bobby Labonte's car for the April 18 NASCAR Sprint Cup race at the Texas Motor Speedway. Perry and Labonte were at a suburban Dallas car dealership to unveil the car. It has the words "Governor Perry" painted on the hood, the campaign's Web address emblazoned on the sides and the message "Perry Governor 2010" on its back. Perry, a Republican, said Labonte's driving reminds him of Texas' strong economy.

Roy Jones Jr. winked at the crowd, wiggled his hips and mixed in a few high-steps as he trotted toward his first opponent in nearly a year. There was plenty of show, but no knockout blow. The 38-year-old still is entertaining in the ring and he still can win, but the sudden knockout victories for which he was known might be a thing of the past. Jones took a 12-round, unanimous decision against previously undefeated Anthony Hanshaw on Saturday night in Biloxi, Miss., capturing the vacant IBC light heavyweight title.

Jeremy Lusk, an American freestyle motocross rider, died of head injuries yesterday after crashing while trying to land a backflip in competition. He was 24. Jorge Ramirez, chief of the intensive-care unit at Calderon Hospital in Costa Rica, where Lusk was taken, said the motocross racer suffered severe brain damage and a possible spinal-cord injury. Lusk won a gold medal at the 2008 X Games. He was injured Saturday night when he failed to complete a full rotation while attempting a Hart Attack backflip and slammed headfirst into the dirt.

In his homecoming Saturday night, undefeated welterweight Mike Jones didn't seem to be in the mood for a long party as he finished off Raul Munoz with a second-round technical knockout at the Asylum Arena in South Philadelphia. After a tentative first round, Jones came out hungry in the second. He countered Munoz's offense with an array of body shots before throwing a devastating hook to his opponent's head. Munoz immediately fell to one knee, and a few seconds later the referee was forced to stop the bout.

NEW YORK - Fueled by an exuberant crowd, Miguel Cotto targeted the eye. And after Cotto unloaded so many punishing uppercuts and head shots to Antonio Margarito, the Mexican star's right eye was sealed shut. A crowd of 21,239 at Madison Square Garden gasped - then roared for Cotto to continue - as the grisly scene flashed on the big screen. Cotto finished the job in front of his fellow flag-waving Puerto Ricans and retained his title, battering Margarito over nine lopsided rounds before winning a TKO decision before they came out for the 10th late Saturday night.

LAS VEGAS - Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been doing this all his life, since he was a scrawny kid seeking solace in the gym. The ring is his comfort zone, and he'll enter it Saturday for the 43d time as a pro, certain as ever that when the night is through he'll not only be a lot richer but still unbeaten. Miguel Cotto is equally certain that he can be the first one to conquer Mayweather. "I don't need anyone else giving me a chance," Cotto said. "If I can trust in myself, I don't need anyone else believing in me. " Not many are, especially the oddsmakers who make Mayweather a 6-1 favorite in Saturday night's fight.

NEW YORK - There are two primary ways an athlete can cheat. He can artificially enhance his body with steroids or human growth hormone, or he can tamper with his equipment to gain a competitive edge. Both methods can be tremendously successful, if the transgressor finds a way to get away with the illegal maneuvers. It is becoming increasingly apparent that the awesome punching power for which Antonio Margarito once was known received a considerable boost from the boxing equivalent of a corked bat. Since he was caught with doctored hand wraps before his matchup with Shane Mosley on Jan. 24, 2009 - a fight he would go on to lose by unanimous decision once the suspect wraps were replaced with those that met all legal specifications, "The Tijiuana Tornado" has been downgraded to a mild breeze.

Minutes before the bell rings next weekend, the ring announcer will bellow his name, and Mike Jones will instantly bounce a few steps forward before thrusting his arms into the air in front of the Madison Square Garden crowd. Wearing a Joe Frazier shirt, his trainer, Vaughn Jackson, will stand firmly in Jones' corner. But his mind will instantly shoot elsewhere. Instead of the World's Most Famous Arena, it will be Joe Frazier's old North Broad Street gym. And for a moment it won't be Mike Jones and Sebastian Lujan.

THE DEDICATION will be private and unannounced. Maybe it will come in the form of trunks and shoes that resemble those worn by Joe Frazier in one of his biggest fights. It could be a subtle gesture toward heaven before the opening bell. Or possibly Mike Jones (25-0, 19 KOs) will simply try to close the show in his Dec. 3 bout against Argentina's Sebastian Lujan (38-5-2, 24 KOs) the way his first boxing mentor, the great Smokin' Joe, might have, with double left hooks delivered downstairs and then upstairs in one continuous motion.

Michigan has banned Dennis Talbott from photographing its teams on campus. Talbott has been linked to ex-Ohio State star Terrelle Pryor in the Buckeyes' memorabilia-for-cash scandal. The NCAA outlined three potentially major violations in its letter of allegations sent to South Carolina on Monday. The NCAA says South Carolina athletes received $55,000 in impermissible benefits or staying at a hotel for a reduced rate and for dealings with a Delaware-based mentoring group.
