Ouma ready for Rosado!

Former world champ Kassim Ouma (26-5-1, 16 KOs) says he’s ready to get back to the top level. “I don’t care who I fight,” he said. “I just want to fight and fight top men and regain my world championship. I want to prove to everyone that I’m still as good as I was when I won the junior middleweight belt in 2004.” Ouma, who had lost three straight fights before beating journeyman Martinus Clay last October, will have a tougher assignment against Gabriel “King” Rosado (10-3, 6 KOs) on April 24th at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. Rosado likes his chances to pull an upset. “Me and trainer Billy Briscoe talked about this fight for weeks before we signed the papers. Billy and I feel I have all the tools to win the fight and I’m dedicating myself one hundred percent to winning,” stated Rosado. The bout will be the co-feature on a card headlined by middleweight contender John Duddy against Billy Lyell. The Main Events card also features two other excellent matchups with middleweight James Lubash (13-1, 6 KOs) facing Przemyslaw Majewski (9-0, 6 KOs) and super lightweight Jason Cintron (10-0, 3 KOs) taking on Henry Lundy (12-0-1, 6 KOs). A pre-fight Fan Festival will be held at Entry Plaza on Edison and Mulberry Streets from 6-8pm, with food, beverages and live entertainment. Doors open for fight at 8pm. Tickets, priced at $38, $53, $78, $103 and $253, can be purchased at Prudential center Box Office or TicketMaster.
