For Philadelphia boxing fans of a certain age, the 1970s were not just about Watergate, Vietnam, and really ugly leisure suits. The decade was the last golden era of Philly boxing, and arguably the most gilded stretch of sustained excellence for what many still consider to be America's finest fight town. At one point in the mid-1970s, four of the world's 10 highest-rated middleweights — Bennie Briscoe, Eugene "Cyclone" Hart, Bobby "Boogaloo" Watts and Willie "The Worm" Monroe — were based in Philly.

MANNY PACQUIAO might meet an old foe in a new place in September. Promoter Bob Arum said he is trying to put together a fifth fight between Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez and shopping it to casinos in Macau and Singapore. Marquez would be the most likely opponent for Pacquiao, though Arum indicated earlier that Timothy Bradley - who won a disputed decision over Pacquiao last year - is another possibility. Marquez knocked Pacquiao out in the sixth round in December, flattening the Filipino fighter with a right hand that left him face down on the canvas for 2 minutes.

More than 900 people have joined the search for Lance Armstrong's stolen bike. The custom Trek Livestrong 1274 was taken after Armstrong used it during Saturday's time trial before the first stage of the Tour of California.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's communications office. The editor of Cycling News says the bike is worth $10,000 and calls this the biggest bike theft ever.

LAS VEGAS - Three times in a 30-minute sit-down with reporters Wednesday, Manny Pacquiao assured the media he is not underestimating Timothy Bradley before their welterweight world-title fight Saturday night. "I know what Timothy is feeling now, how he's trained hard, thinking this is his big break," Pacquiao said. The unsettling fact for the 33-year-old Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 knockouts), as he finalizes preparations for his 60th pro fight, is that the underdog spirit he relates to in Bradley is what helped push the champ to breakthrough victories years ago over Marco Antonio Barrera, Erik Morales, and Oscar De La Hoya.

EIGHT WEEKS AGO, after a controversial double-tiebreaker loss to Terrell Gausha at the USA National Championships in Fort Carson, Colo., ended his dream of representing his country at this summer's London Olympics, a bitterly disappointed Jesse Hart hinted that he might be through with boxing forever. "Right now, I don't think I'll ever fight again," said the 22-year-old North Philadelphian. "I don't even know about the pros. " But they say that time heals all wounds, and the signing of a lucrative contract and a chance to make your professional debut on one of boxing's biggest stages make a great salve.

LAS VEGAS - Floyd Mayweather Jr. finally found himself in a real fight, complete with a bloody nose and an opponent, in Miguel Cotto, who was never going to quit. As usual, he found a way to win. Mayweather used his speed and accuracy Saturday night to take a unanimous decision over a game Cotto in a bruising bout to win a piece of the 154-pound title. But it wasn't easy, as Cotto landed some hard punches and kept attacking all the way to the final bell. "You're a hell of a champion," Mayweather told Cotto in the ring afterward.

It ended with a birdie, a standing ovation and a seventh-place finish for Annika Sorenstam, leaving the Hall of Fame golfer with no regrets after the final stroke of her career.

For all the tough losses he has endured on the golf course the last few years, Ernie Els found perspective at home in the blue eyes of 5-year-old Ben. His son was diagnosed with autism, which Els and his wife coped with privately until the Big Easy showed up on the PGA Tour this week with an "Autism Speaks" logo on his golf bag and a message he wanted to get out. "I feel comfortable talking about it now," Els told the Associated Press after...

JESSE HART always figured that by the time he became a pro boxer, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao would be retired. He was wrong. On Saturday, he'll fight on the undercard of arguably the biggest fight in boxing history, when the two pound-for-pound kings clash at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Hart (16-0, 13 KOs), who grew up in North Philadelphia at 28th and Berks, takes on Chicago's Mike Jimenez (17-0, 11 KOs) in a scheduled 10-round bout for the vacant USBA super middleweight title.

WHEN IT WAS announced last month that Danny Garcia would be headlining NBC's "Premier Boxing Champions" second show in a much-anticipated fight with Lamont Peterson, there were some obvious questions that needed answering. Where would the fight happen? Would the two junior welterweight titleholders be unifying their belts, or fighting at a catch weight? One month later, we have at least one answer, and the second seems all but official. Barclays Center in Brooklyn will host the April 11 bout, featuring Juniata Park's Garcia (29-0, 17 KOs)

NEW YORK - A Polish television reporter and cameraman cornered Bryant Jennings outside his locker room late Saturday night, and the North Philadelphia heavyweight saw his chance to tap into a more global audience. He had broken the spirit of a pro-Polish crowd 20 minutes earlier with a dominant 10th-round technical knockout of Artur Szpilka at the Theater at Madison Square Garden. Jennings floored the Pole in the final round. But Jennings said the performance was not the best he had to offer.

LAS VEGAS - Juniata Park's Danny Garcia, wearing his designer sunglasses indoors, chewed on a stick of gum and stared into the crowd at the MGM Grand auditorium. His opponent, Argentina's Lucas Matthysse, kept his eyes on the ceiling. Garcia's father and trainer, Angel Garcia, was in the midst of a nearly nine-minute rant that has become his routine at events like Thursday's news conference. And the fighters, who meet Saturday for Garcia's unified light-welterweight titles, were not surprised.

LAS VEGAS - The idea of Manny Pacquiao being knocked out cold was shocking enough. The sight of him face down on the canvas, unresponsive even as bedlam broke out all around him, was positively frightening. Pacquiao's wife, Jinkee, broke down in tears and tried to get in the ring to aid her downed husband. Juan Manuel Marquez didn't even look. He was already busy celebrating the knockout of a lifetime. This was boxing at its brutal best, a toe-to-toe welterweight slugfest late Saturday night that was destined from the opening bell to be decided by fists instead of judges.

The International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, R.I., is investigating allegations that former doubles champion Bob Hewitt sexually abused girls he coached, an inquiry that could result in expulsion from the Hall. Hewitt, 72, won all of the Grand Slam doubles during his decades-long career in the 1960s and 1970s and was inducted into the Hall in 1992. He lives in South Africa and has not been charged criminally. Among Hewitt's accusers is Heather Conner, of West Newbury, Mass., who has spoken publicly before and agreed to be identified.

ONE OF boxing's major sanctioning bodies will review Timothy Bradley's controversial split-decision victory over Manny Pacquiao, the first step toward what promoter Bob Arum hopes will be "clarity" in the judging of the fight. WBO President Francisco "Paco" Valcarcel said in a statement Wednesday that the WBO's championship committee will review video of the fight with five "recognized international judges" and make a recommendation. He said the WBO does not doubt the ability of the scoring judges.

LAS VEGAS — Nobody likes to feel like a schmuck, but if you listen to fight promoter Bob Arum that's exactly how anyone who watched the World Welterweight Championship fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley should have felt after the judge's decision was announced. To say that Arum was unhappy with the split decision that made Bradley the newly crowned World Boxing Organization welterweight champion and dealt Pacquiao his first loss since March, 2005, would be understating an understatement.
