1. It was a hard-fought battle with lots of controversy, but promoter Gary Shaw accepted his fighter's loss gracefully.

2. The WBA said that, in calculating the sanctioning fee, it had inadvertently overcharged the champion. But it discovered the error on its own and was voluntarily refunding the excess payment.

3. "Ross Greenburg sure knew what he was doing when he decided to replace Larry Merchant with Max Kellerman," a source at HBO said.

4. Harold; you'll have to speak louder. I can't hear you.

5. Before the 220-pound mugger could say a word, Jim Gray decked him with a single punch and stomped on his head.

6. Tell the production coordinator to move Al Haymon to the side. He's hogging the camera.

7. Officials at Canastota said there was typographical error in the press release that stated Jose Suliaman had been indicted into the Boxing Hall of Fame.

8. Everyone in the office is dying to know when Wladimir Klitschko will fight Ruslan Chagaev.

9. Golden Boy is growing increasingly frustrated by its inability to get dates on HBO.

10. "Just salad for me," James Toney told the waitress.

11. "How should I know?" Dan Rafael grumbled. "I haven't seen a tape of either guy."

12. Vasquez and Marquez in Snoozefest.

13. We're so pleased to have you back as a judge at the Miss Black America Pageant, Mr. Tyson.

14. Alfonso Gomez KOs Miguel Cotto in 2.

15. "Go for it," Richard Schaefer told Oscar. "I think that a Maori tattoo on the side of your face would be great for your image."

16. Merry Christmas from the entire Duva family.

17. First I was Cassius Clay. Then I was Muhammad Ali. Now I'm changing my name to Irving Goldberg.

18. A failed medical test KO'd this week's title fight in Arkansas.

19. Don King and I shook hand on it, so I'm not worried.

20. Separated at birth: Harold Lederman and Michael Buffer.

21. Eliot Spitzer leaned over to Bill Richardson and whispered, "The roundcard girl with the tattoo beneath her naval is kind of cute."

22. And the #1 best-selling book this week: "Where the Bones are Buried" by Bob Arum.

23. Even though it was grossly unfair and resulted in the loss of two television dates, Lou DiBella reacted calmly to the development.

24. Bernard Hopkins Mellows Out

25. "Shave my head like Michael Joradn," Don King told the barber.

26. It's another Cedric Kushner success story.

27. Wow! Vinny Maddalone slipped that punched nicely.

28. I never knew his name was Dave Itskowitch. I thought it was Dave Fromloudibellasoffice.

29. Here's a nice photo of Gary Shaw in fishnets.

20. This article was edited and fact-checked for accuracy by...
