According to Zahir Raheem's advisor Matt Yanofsky, the former Erik Morales conqueror will make his return to the ring on March 23 after a two-year plus layoff. He'll be fighting New Zealand native Santos Pakau (28-7-2, 11 KOs) at the Emerald Queen Casino in Washington.
Raheem (31-3, 18 KOs) defeated Morales on HBO in 2005 but lost to Acelino Freitas in his next fight. He hasn't fought since a 2010 knockout of Roberto Valenzuela.
