Arthur Ashe artifacts to go on auction block Dec. 8
•?Artifacts reflecting the public and private life of Arthur Ashe are going on the auction block.
They include speech notes on AIDS awareness and the jacket he wore at an anti-apartheid protest. Those were among the causes the tennis great and humanitarian championed during his lifetime.
The 16 manuscripts and personal objects are being offered as one lot on Dec. 8 at Christie’s books and manuscript sale in New York. It’s expected to sell for $80,000 to $120,000.
Christie’s says the items are being sold by a private collector.
Ashe was the first African-American to win Wimbledon and the U.S. and Australian Opens. The Richmond, Va., native died in 1993 of AIDS-related pneumonia attributed to a blood transfusion following a heart operation.

Former champion Haye
to step back into ring?•?Former heavyweight champion David Haye is going to return to boxing with a bout against Mark de Mori of Australia at London’s O2 arena next year.
Haye will take on the 33-year-old de Mori on Jan. 16, his first fight since beating fellow Briton Dereck Chisora in 2012.
Haye says, “I’m so happy to be able to step back through the ropes and back into the ring.”
The 35-year-old Haye was forced to withdraw from two fights in 2013, against Manuel Charr and Tyson Fury, because of injuries.
He was advised by surgeons to consider retiring after shoulder surgery, which ruled him out of taking on Fury.
Teen mistakenly does whole marathon route
• A Pennsylvania teenager’s family says he accidentally ran the all 26.2 miles of the Philadelphia Marathon because he missed a turn on his half-marathon course.
Evan Megoulas runs on his high school’s cross country team in Palmyra, 80 miles west of Philadelphia. He set out Sunday to run the 13.1-mile half-marathon. His family was waiting for him at the finish line but became concerned when he didn’t show up.
They say they gave police a photo of Evan, and officers tracked him down in the Manayunk section of the city. He felt good despite missing his turn and wanted to keep running.
Evan’s brother says after he completed the marathon, officers wanted a picture with him.
His time was 5:23:11.
