It’s Christmas Day and Santa, making a list and checking it twice, delivered these cool presents to those in the business of boxing:

Tony Ayala -- A lifetime supply of saltpeter, to be administered behind bars.

Mike Tyson -- A prison cell to share with Tony Ayala. But no saltpeter.

Paul Ingle -- A long, happy and healthy life.

Steve Pollard (Paul Ingle’s trainer) -- A lifetime suspension from boxing, or a shared cell with Ayala and Tyson. Pollard gets to pick.

Bob Lee -- The balls to rat out Don King.

Don King -- A federal prosecutor with enough smarts to put this predicate felon back in the can.

Bob Arum --  A prison cell to share with Don King. Both no saltpeter.

Shelly Finkel -- His former respectability.

Zab Judah -- A speck of humility and a trace of class.

Prince Naseem Hamed -- (See Zab Judah)

Andrew Golota -- A heart.

Ike Ibeabuchi -- A brain.

Bernard Hopkins -- A fight with Roy Jones after Trinidad softens Jones up a bit. Low blows allowed.

Lou Duva -- Liquid cement to keep his face from falling apart.
