Hassan N'Dam Inks With Hyde, Fights on December 14

By Mike Coppinger

Middleweight contender Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam hasn't fought since losing his WBO middleweight title to Peter Quillin in Oct. 2012, but that will change next month.

N'Dam N'Jikam recently signed with manager Gary Hyde on Wednesday, and the Frenchman will return Dec. 14 against Anthony Fitzgerald (14-5, 4 KOs) in Barcelona, Spain, Hyde told on Wednesday.

The plan is for N'Dam N'Jikam, 29, to compete again in February in California, before setting his sights to world title fights. Hyde is best known for handling the career of junior featherweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux.

N'Dam N'Jikam (27-1, 17 KOs) was outboxing Quillin, but was dropped six times en route to a unanimous decision loss.

[QUOTE=anonymous2.0;13927797]It always confused me: how can you knock a guy down 6 times but not knock him out?[/QUOTE] Quillin got good power, but I guess N'Dam has a good chin and will
