Sadam Ali To Box Jeremy Bryan On Hopkins-Shumenov

By Keith Idec

Sadam Ali will return to the ring April 19 against Jeremy Bryan on the Bernard Hopkins-Beibut Shumenov undercard at Washington’s D.C. Armory.

The Ali-Bryan bout, contracted for 10 rounds at 147 pounds, will be broadcast by SHO Extreme, just before the start of Showtime’s 9 p.m. tripleheader that’ll feature the Hopkins-Shumenov light heavyweight championship unification fight in its main event.

Brooklyn’s Ali, a 2008 Olympian, is 18-0, including 11 knockouts, yet has been matched pretty carefully throughout his five-year pro career. Ali, 25, stopped Mexico’s Jesus Selig (16-2-1, 10 KOs) in the sixth round of his last fight Dec. 7 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The 28-year-old Bryan (17-3, 7 KOs), a two-time national Golden Gloves champion from Paterson, N.J., defeated the Bronx’s Issouf Kinda (16-2, 6 KOs) by unanimous decision in his last outing, an eight-round junior welterweight fight Feb. 14 in Huntington, N.Y. Bryan bounced back against Kinda from a one-punch, second-round knockout defeat in his previous fight to heavy-handed Amir Imam (13-0, 12 KOs), of Albany, N.Y. Bryan’s loss last April 12 in Las Vegas to Imam was his third by knockout or technical knockout as a pro.

This guy needs to either change his name or get out of the sport.

Really like watching this guy. Saw his last couple of fights at the Barclays. Very poised and his ring generalship is very impressive. I can see him making some noise.
