CANCUN, Mexico -- Sometimes covering boxing is like covering the circus. Coming to a Don King-promoted event in this exotic, sunshine-filled resort city for a heavyweight title fight between a Nigerian (Sam Peter) and a Kazakhstan native (Oleg Maskaev) sure fills the bill, especially when the city is overrun by spring breakers.

The cast of characters that shows up for a King card is always impressive, and this one is no different.

Julio Cesar Chavez Sr., Roy Jones Jr. , Larry Holmes, Gerry Cooney, Thomas Hearns and Nikolai Valuev have all made the pilgrimage. Roberto Duran is expected here on Saturday.
