Kassim Ouma might be past his best but he has certainly not lost his punching skills.


That’s exactly what one Hollywood resident found out when he allegedly tried making gay advances at the former world champion.

The former IBF light middleweight champion unleashed a barrage of his famous punches knocking out the man last week, according to celebrity news website TMZ.com.

Ouma however paid dearly for his outburst as he was arrested for felony battery causing great bodily harm.

Ouma is reported to have told investigators that he was hanging out in Hollywood early Friday morning when he struck up a conversation with the victim.

Ouma says the two went back to the other man’s home for a drink … where the man allegedly made a pass at the boxer.

Ouma claims he politely declined multiple advances but says when he got up to leave, the guy made one final move — and Ouma shoved him away.

“The altercation then escalated … with Ouma allegedly knocking the guy out cold. Cops were called to the scene — where the victim was treated and transported to a nearby hospital,” wrote TMZ.com.

It is not the first time that Ouma is on the wrong side of the law. In 2007 Ouma was arrested in Brevard County, South Florida on charges of driving without a licence, careless driving and failure to appear in court on separate charges. He was later released after posting a $500 bond
