Kassim Ouma Ready For Final Career Run on Dec. 11

On December 11th Boxing finally returns to, one of the oldest Boxing venues in the Lehigh Valley, the EconoLodge and Conference Center in Allentown, PA. The incredible night of boxing action will be broadcasting LIVE around the WORLD on GFL.tv!

Returning to the ring for the 1st time in over 2 years will be former Jr Middleweight Champion & Former Middleweight title challenger, Kasim Ouma (27-8-1).

Ouma, who was once a Ugandan child soldier before becoming a pro boxer, has had many ups & downs throughout his career. In 2004, he defeated Verno Phillips (38-8-1) to capture the IBF Jr. Middleweight title. A title he successfully defended once before dropping a 12 round decision to Roman Karmazin in 2005.

In 2006, Ouma had his best year defeated former World Title challenger Marco Antonio Rubio (34-2-1) as well as highly touted then Undefeated prospect Sechew Powell (20-0) on HBO. Those fights led to a 2006 showdown with WBC & WBO Middleweight Champion Jermaine Taylor (25-0-1), in which Ouma dropped a 12 round decision.

After the Taylor fight, Ouma lost 5 out of 7 fights to former IBF Jr Middleweight champion Cornelius Bundradge (27-3), also former world title challengers Gabe Rosado (11-3), a highly controversial decision to Vanes Martirosyn (26-0) and WBA Middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin. To this day many believe the fight between the phenom Golovkin and Ouma was Golovkin’s toughest test to date.

Ouma has taken a much needed break from the ring and is returning better then ever when he faces Rahman Mustafa Yusubov (9-12). Yusubov has been in the ring with a who’s who list in the 154/160 divisions. Yusubov is a guy who always shows up to fight and will try to pull the “Upset of the Year” when he faces Ouma on December 11th.

Also returning to the ring for the 7th time in 2013, Philadelphia’s Tevin Farmer (13-4). Farmer has built a very impressive 6 fight winning streak since losing in 2012 to undefeated prospect Jose Pedraza (10-0). In his last bout, Farmer outpointed undefeated prospect Camilo Perez (9-0).

His opponent will be battle tested veteran Carlos Vinan (10-11-5). Vinan has dropped two straight to former World title challenger Teon Kennedy (17-2-2), in a bout that was nominated for GFL “2013 Boxing Fight of the Year”, and undefeated prospect Mark Davis (17-0). Vinan has also shared the ring with former World Title challengers Eloy Perez, Mercito Gesta, Diego Magdaleno,
and Ray Beltran.

Both Farmer and Vinan are on different paths in the boxing world but both need to be successful here so boxing fans can expect a war!

Ireland will be invading the Econolodge, when Anthony Cacace (8-0) & Tyrone McKenna (2-0) will do battle in separate bouts! Both men are Belfast bred but made the move to Philadelphia to train at the famous Harrowgate gym.

Cacace will be fighting in America for only the 2nd time when he faces veteran journeyman Josh Beeman (5-14) in a 4 round affair. After winning his 1st 6 fights in the UK,Cacace made his American debut with a 4 round Unanimous Decision over the very tough Osnel Charles (9-6-1). Despite his record Beeman will be another tough test for the Belfast bred fighter, and will have a few tricks up his sleeve to attempt to walk away with his “0″.

Tyrone McKenna has fought all of his fights in America so far and looks to notch his 3rd straight victory in his young career. McKenna will face off with Atlanta’s Marquis Jackson (2-10) in a 4 round JR Welterwight showdown. McKenna has two straight decision victories and will be looking to impress against Jackson in front of a WORLDWIDE audience on GFL.tv!

Fans from Ireland & the UK will be able to witness both Cacace & McKenna LIVE on GFL.tv! For only $9.99 you will be able to watch LIVE an re watch any time you want on GFL OnDemand without ever having to pay again!

Rounding out the card will be a trio of young up and coming Heavyweights. John Lennox (12-2) will take on Kevin Franklin (4-8). Undefeated Dorsett Barwell (10-0) will take on the hard hitting Curtis Tate (7-4). Highly touted undefeated heavyweight prospect Anthony “Juice” Young will be his “0″ on the line against an opponent TBA. Finally, Antonio Dubose (2-0) will take on Jesus Gonzalez (1-3) in a 4 round featherweight attraction.

Hall of Famer & Former Heavyweight Champion of the World, Larry Holmes will be in attendance and will be gracing fans with his commentating skills & boxing knowledge on GFL.tv and Service Electric TV in the Lehigh Valley area!

I watched the Vanes fight. As badly as I was hoping it would be a robbery, it really wasn't.
