KICKBOXING

Big Daddy's Big Flop in Muay Thai

PATTAYA, Thailand -- Wincing in pain and clutching his shins, Riddick Bowe ended his debut in Thai kickboxing with a thud in the second round.

The 45-year-old former world heavyweight boxing champion came to a rude awakening on Friday that Muay Thai is just as punishing.

Bowe was assaulted by kicks to the shins from his 30-year-old Russian opponent Levgen Golovin.

The fighter known as "Big Daddy" lost his balance and fell five times before the bout was ended by technical knockout on his last fall.

Bowe's last boxing fight was in 2008. He says he decided to try Muay Thai because he was bored with retirement and needs the cash. He made $150,000 from Friday's fight.




Bowe beat Evander Holyfield in 1992 to become the undisputed world heavyweight champion.

NBA

Bosh Fined $5K for Flopping in Game 4

SAN ANTONIO -- Miami Heat star Chris Bosh has been fined $5,000 for flopping during Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

The NBA announced the fine on Friday. The play happened midway through the second quarter with the Heat leading 41-32.

Bosh was trailing Spurs forward Tim Duncan as the two headed back down the court when Duncan established post position in the paint. As Spurs guard Gary Neal approached with the dribble, Duncan posted up a late-arriving Bosh to try to seal him away from the play. Bosh flailed his arms and fell to the ground.

Duncan was whistled for a foul on the play, which wiped away a layup for Neal.

Bosh had 20 points and 13 rebounds in the win that evened the series at two games apiece.

Edwards Tops Cup Qualifying at Michigan

BROOKLYN, Mich. -- Carl Edwards has topped qualifying for the first time this season with a lap of 202.452 mph at Michigan International Speedway on Friday.

Edwards was given the pole in May at Talladega as well, but that was because qualifying was rained out and the field was set by practice speeds. He's second in the Sprint Cup standings.

Kurt Busch was second in qualifying, followed by Kasey Kahne. Points leader Jimmie Johnson was 17th.

Edwards started second last weekend at Pocono, but finished 18th.

Last June, Marcos Ambrose won the pole on the newly paved surface at MIS at 203.241 mph, the first time since 1987 the 200 mph mark was broken during Sprint Cup qualifying.

Edwards showed the track is still plenty fast.

MLB

Kennedy, Mattingly, Gibson Among 8 Suspended

NEW YORK -- Arizona pitcher Ian Kennedy has been suspended for 10 games and Diamondbacks infielder Eric Hinske for five for their roles in a brawl this week, while managers Don Mattingly and Kirk Gibson have been given one-game bans.

In all, eight members of the Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers organizations were suspended Friday by Major League Baseball Senior Vice President Joe Garagiola Jr.

He cited Kennedy for intentionally throwing a pitch at the head of Zack Greinke after a warning had been issued on Tuesday night and Hinske for leaving the dugout and "aggressive actions." Mattingly was penalized for his conduct and Gibson for Kennedy's actions following a warning.

Dodgers pitcher J.P. Howell and infielder-outfielder Skip Schumaker were suspended two games apiece for "aggressive actions" and Los Angeles hitting coach Mark McGwire two games for his conduct.

Los Angeles pitcher Ronald Belisario was suspended one game for "aggressive actions."

All eight were fined, as were four additional players.
