IBF Junior middleweight champion Kassim “The Dream” Ouma (right) will walk away with $ 0.25m(sh437m) after a night’s work against Russian Roman “Made in Hell” Karmazin in his title defense next week in Las Vegas, Nevada.

HBO Latino, that will be showing his second mandatory defense, will pay the Ugandan a hefty cheque as part of the lucrative deal with the Ugandan fighter. It is not clear how much the Florida based junior middleweight star will earn from his purse, but he will earn more than his Russian challenger after the fight on Thursday.

In a recent interview by leading Boxing pundit Gregory Leon, he was asked whether he would like to fight with former WBC Super welterweight champion Winky Wright.

“To be real with you, Winky is a middleweight now and I only can focus on what’s in front of me,” Ouma said.

“I would like to fight Winky, but right now I don’t even want to talk about that too much because it’s all about Karmazin.”

Karmazin, a majority points winner over former WBC middleweight champion Keith Holmes in April this year, will be a hard nut to crack.
It will be Ouma’s first fight against a Russian .

Ouma will be making his debut for his new promoters Golden Boy Promotions that is owned by American boxing star Oscar De La Hoya.

Ouma is 21(13 KOs)1-1 while his Russian challenger is 33(21)1-1.
