Rodney King fought a cop Friday night. This time he won.

Rodney King fought a cop Friday night, and this time he won. King, who came to involuntary fame in 1992 when he was the subject of a videotaped and savage beating by LAPD officers, defeated Simon Aouad, a former Chester police officer, by decision Friday night, winning the Celebrity Boxing Federation Heavyweight belt. While in the area, King also attended the Daily News Sexy Single party Thursday at the Water Works Restaurant and Lounge, behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art. He accompanied Mayfair Civic Association President Scott Cummings, who also fought Friday night, in the CBF 11 event at the Ramada Philadelphia Airport. Cummings won after twice knocking down opponent Mike Tate. Cummings, a former bodyguard for Donald Trump, was billed as "Michael Jackson's former bodyguard." He protected Jackson for two days in the early 1990s when the King of Pop visited Atlantic City.

Meanwhile Celebrity Boxing Federation promoter Damon Feldman and local tailor Daniel Morroni will be seen on the Sept. 21 episode of "Judge Jeanine Pirro" which airs at noon on the CW Philly 57. Feldman was sued by George "Tailor Made" Weisgerber - seen on several VH1 reality shows - after Weisgerber was kicked off one of Feldman's cards earlier this year. Pirro, a former district attorney and judge in Westchester, N.Y., was here the other day promoting the new season of her courtroom show. She was happy to be able to see her daughter Cristi Pirro, who is in her final year at Penn law school. Pirro, who blogs at JudgeJP.com, says that Cristi - who was a Penn undergrad, too - is going into commercial and business law, and has no interest in following in her mother's criminal-law footsteps.
