On a wet, windy night at the shore, the only thing that fell harder than the rain was Anders Eklund. Tim Witherspoon smashed Eklund with an overhand right to the jaw and scored a one-round knockout in a scheduled 10-round heavyweight bout at Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino. Referee Tony Orlando stopped the bout 71 seconds into the first round. Eklund, whose head bounced off the canvas, lay on his back for about three minutes longer than he had been up fighting, as paramedics tended to him. He finally got to his feet and left the ring under his own power.

After fighting on the same card 24 times, Rafael and Gabriel Ruelas turned their 25th into a joyful but brutal celebration. Joyful for them, brutal for their opponents. With impressive performances that thrilled the crowd of 5,193, they became the first brothers in boxing history to successfully defend their world titles on the same card last night at the MGM Grand. Rafael stopped Billy Schwer in the eighth round to retain his International Boxing Federation lightweight title, while Gabriel defended his World Boxing Council junior-lightweight crown with a second-round technical knockout of Fred Liberatore.

Two fights; a pair of first-round knockouts; and 3 minutes, 11 seconds of combined ring time. All thanks to a little advice from dad. "My dad always said if you leave a guy around long enough, something bad might happen," said North Philadelphia middleweight Jesse Hart. "And we don't want to leave anybody around. " Hart will look for his third straight win since turning pro in June when he meets New York's Lekan Byfield at Harrah's Philadelphia in Chester on Friday night.

Lonny Beasley, who calls himself "The Honeybee," flitted too much and stung too little last night at Trump Plaza. After building an early lead, Beasley had to settle for a draw against Tony Marshall in a 10-round junior-middleweight bout - a decision that left the crowd booing. The draw left Beasley, of Detroit, with a record of 23-2-2, with seven knockouts; Marshall, of Albany, N.Y., is now 16-3-6. Judge Richard Strange scored it 96-94 for Beasley, while Eva Shain had it 98-92 for Marshall, and Frank Brunette had it 95-95.

The Collegiate Rugby Championship men's division got off to a dramatic start on the first day of pool play Saturday at Talen Energy Stadium. All 24 teams played three matches each, ranging from physical contests to all-out brawls on an entertaining day of rugby sevens action. Three-time champion Cal and two-time champ Dartmouth each won all its group games. The Big Green finished their pool play with a dramatic comeback win against 2010 champion Utah. The 19-15 final was a statement.

Where to begin? A knockout production of An Octoroon , by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins and directed mightily by Joanna Settle, has just opened at the Wilma Theater. Well, it's not exactly by Jacobs-Jenkins, but rather radically reimagined and adapted from a 19th-century melodrama by Dion Boucicault called The Octoroon . So this is a contemporary play - note the An in the title rather than The - about theater history. Boucicault's play is about slaves on a plantation in the Deep South - this is Tara territory - and is thus about racial injustice (radical in itself, since the original play predates the Emancipation Proclamation)

The city that loves you back gets a whole lotta lovin' from Roxborough native Michael Ogborn in his new musical, The Three Maries: A Philadelphia Phable . In No Attytude Productions' shamelessly entertaining staging, Ogborn uses a historical event to lovingly spoof our accents, institutions, and traditions. And it's the most phun I've had in a theater all year. Ogborn set his story during the 1926 U.S. Sesquicentennial (that's a 150-year anniversary to youse), when Queen Marie of Romania (Mary Martello)

VERONA, N.Y. - Bryant Jennings was flat on the canvas for four seconds Saturday night, then pushed himself up onto two wobbly legs. Before referee Dick Pakozdi started the fight again, the Philadelphian looked around to see whether he could find a clock. Jennings wanted to know how much time was left in the seventh round. He wanted to know whether, after being knocked down by a vicious uppercut, he could make it to the bell and still have a chance at beating Luis Ortiz and ascending to the top of the heavyweight division.

The way Jason Sosa and his trainer, Chino Rivas, see it, Esteban Rodriguez caught a break a little over three years ago. Sosa, from Camden, and Rodriguez were scheduled to go six rounds at 135 pounds on a card in September 2012 at Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, but a technicality reduced the fight to four rounds. "We knocked him down in the fourth," Sosa recalled. "I would have finished him off if it went six. " Since that fight, Sosa, (17-1-3, 13 knockouts) has built up a head of steam, recording 12 straight knockouts.

"SOUTHPAW" is about a white boxer named Hope, played by Jake Gyllenhaal - you can call him a Great White Hope, or, with his ripped torso, the abdominal snowman. Given the character's loaded name, you keep waiting for race to be an issue in "Southpaw," but it never is - instead, this story of a white champ, his black trainer (Forest Whitaker) and Latino adversary (Victor Ortiz) takes its This Is What America Looks Like in the 21st Century cast and applies them to a screenplay leftover from the 1930s.

Kellie Woll administered a few squirts of clear liquid to a dish full of wriggling tadpoles and within minutes, the creatures became completely still. A few minutes after that, they started to move again. No surprise, as the liquid contained propofol, a widely used anesthetic. With it and most other anesthetics, however, there is not much difference between the amount needed to put someone to sleep and the amount that will knock one out permanently. Woll works in the University of Pennsylvania lab of Roderic G. Eckenhoff, who is on a long-term quest for better alternatives.

NEW YORK - Danny Garcia stood in the center of his locker room as his manager snipped away the fighter's white wrappings, freeing the fists that dealt one of the most potent knockouts of his career. Saturday's second-round knockout at the Barclays Center was Garcia's shortest fight in three years. He earned $700,000 for dispatching heavy underdog Rod Salka in 4 minutes, 30 seconds. The final flurry was a righthanded body shot matched with a blindsided left hook. The referee ended the nontitle fight immediately and medics rushed into the ring as Salka lay flat on his back.
