Asloum to hang up gloves

By Christian Chataignier


WBA light flyweight champion in recess Brahim Asloum announced his retirement from the ring Sunday on the French national television (France 2). Due the end of his partnership with Canal +, the French boxer, gold medalist at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, said “The desire is there, but I’m obliged to stop. It is not possible to hold a big boxing event in France. I’m hurt because it takes away five or six years of my life. I am extremely angry with Canal + (The network which televised all his professional fights).” Asloum is the only French Olympic champion who then managed to become a world champion (WBA). He compiled a record of 24-2 with 10 KOs.
