FORMER IBF junior middleweight champion Kassim â€œThe Dreamâ€ Ouma is to return to the ring on October 13 against Alfredo â€œClassyâ€ Cuevas in Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA,
Dominic Pesoli, president of 8-Count Production announced the fight last Thursday. â€œWe just faxed back the contract a couple of minutes ago. Itâ€™s a great opportunity for Freddie,â€ Pesoli said.
â€œA win for Ouma would get him right back on the top of the rankings.â€
The fight comes two months after the Ugandan pugilist lost his 154 pound IBF crown to Russiaâ€™s Roman â€œMade in Hellâ€ Karmazin.
The Florida-based former UPDF boxer will use the fight to claw back into the super welterweight division after he lost his ranking in major boxing bodies.
IBF now rates Ouma at number six while WBC rates him at 14. He needs two fights to get back into the title picture.
The fight will be promoted by Golden Boy Promotions and 8-Count Production. Ouma is 21-2-1(13 KOs) while Cuevas is 25-7-1(17 KOs).
