Kassim Ouma in Failed Comeback of the Month, Still Running From the Law
By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent
New York, NY (December 2, 2015)–Kassim ‘The Dream’ Ouma is dreaming no more. The former Internaitonalk Boxing Federation World Super Welterweight champion will turn 37 years old on December 12. Having failed twice in attempts to win a share of the world middleweight crown against Jermaine Taylor and Gennady Golovkin, with a record of 28-9-1 with 17 knockouts, Ouma has lost another comeback attempt. The latest loss has earned Ouma the distinction of Real Combat Media failed comeback of the month for the month of December 2015.
Ouma lost an eight round decision to 10-0 Russian middleweight prospect Igor Selivanov this past weekend at Club A2 in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Two judges did not give Ouma a round. Even worse, Ouma, originally from Kampala, Uganda, has been on the run from the United States from a court date for a warrant for felony cocaine possession dating to April 2014. In August 2015, Ouma missed his court date. It will cost him thirty thousand dollars to clear up the warrant, and that does not include trial, if he returns to the United States, or is successfully extradited from an African country or wherever he gets caught.
