FORMER IBF junior middleweight champion Kassim “The Dream” Ouma returns to the ring today against Gabriel “King” Rosado in a non-title fight that he must win to be taken seriously as a contender in future title fights.

Ouma has been preparing for the fight in Philadelphia with former WBC, WBA and IBF welterweight champion Cory “Next Generation” Spinks.

Rosado, known as a fighter who likes to please the crowd, wants to use Ouma as a stepping stone to improve his ranking. The American has a record of (11-3-0, 7 KOs).

Once again Ouma will be fighting an opponent much bigger than him with a reach advantage. Rosado stands at six feet.

Ouma is seeking a 27th career win. He goes into this season opener with a (26-5-1, 16 KOS) record.

Meanwhile former Commonwealth featherweight champion Jackson “Action” Asiku will return to the ring tomorrow against Gairy St Clair at the Challenge stadium in Perth, Australia. Asiku last fought against Rey Anton Olarte in November.

Asiku has held his ground in the latest World Boxing Council ratings at number 23 in his division.

The Australian-based fighter is the highest rated from Uganda and will be seeking to improve his status when he mounts the ring for the first time this year.

The other Ugandan in the ratings is former Africa light middleweight champion Badru “Mr Crush” Lusambya, who has fallen in the 154-pound division to 37 even after beating Chas “Croydon Bomber” Symonds with a technical knockout recently.
