After beating Lennox Lewis for the WBC Heavyweight championship, Oliver McCall told HBO's Larry Merchant and HBO viewers they will be able to see him fight again on Showtime. "Naturally, promoter Don King, who does all of his fights with Showtime, was grinning broadly at McCall's side" (Prentis Rogers, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 9/26). Promoter Ernie Terrell said it was unlikely that Chicago-native McCall would fight his next title defense in Chicago. The reason: fight promoters do not like to black out the Chicago area because of its TV market size (Terry Armour, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 9/26).....In Baltimore, Milton Kent writes that ESPN's presence at the O.J. Simpson trial "distorts and trivializes the criminal justice system" (Baltimore SUN, 9/26)....CNN is launching a CD-ROM package on the O.J. Simpson hearings at a cost of about $19. It is designed to "live through the ages; it's a quickie project intended to capitalize on a breaking news story that doesn't justify" the $40-50 for most CD- ROMs (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 9/26).
