CORRESPONDENT

Larry Hazzard, a ringside fixture for more than two decades as New Jersey's top boxing official, was KO'd from his powerful pugilism position Wednesday, according to sources.

Kim Ricketts, a senior administrator in the Division of Law and Public Safety, delivered the news to Hazzard on behalf of state Attorney General Anne Milgram around 4 p.m. in Trenton, two boxing sources said Wednesday night.

Deputy commissioner Sylvester Cuyler is the state's acting boxing commissioner, according to a source.

The sources requested anonymity because the news was not released to the public. Attempts to reach Hazzard, who was escorted out of the building upon receiving the news, were unsuccessful.

"This is a shock," one of the sources said.

Then-Gov. Tom Kean appointed Hazzard commissioner of the state Athletic Control Board in 1985. Hazzard was sworn in on Feb. 27, 1986

I really want more information on this. I hope it has nothing to do with his stoppage of the Gomez-Gatti murder fight.
