Tickets for Ouma vs. Roman, priced at $150, $100 and $50, are on sale now and can be purchased at the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa Box Office at (951) 755-5391 or online at www.ticketmaster.com. The fights will be televised on TeleFutura's 'Solo Boxeo' beginning at 8 pm ET / PT.
"After the success of our first show at Morongo featuring Daniel Ponce De Leon, Golden Boy Promotions is very excited to bring another explosive night of world championship caliber boxing to the Inland Empire," said Oscar de la Hoya, President of Golden Boy Promotions. "We are proud to present former World Champion Kassim Ouma on this card so he can show the junior middleweight division that he is on the road to another world championship."
When it comes to action-packed fights, few fighters do it better than former world champion Kassim "The Dream" Ouma (25-3-1, 15 KO's), who holds the Compubox record for the most punches landed in a junior middleweight title fight with 502. Ouma, a fighter who always comes forward when he fights, is also well known for the hardships he suffered early in his life having to fight in his native Uganda's civil war as a child soldier at the age of six. Inactive since losing a hard-fought middleweight title fight to Jermain Taylor in December of 2006, the 28-year-old Ouma is chomping at the bit to get back in the ring and back in the win column. In Tijuana's Saul Roman (27-4, 24 KO's), whose last four wins have come by knockout, Ouma will be facing a hard-hitting battler who would like nothing more than to add the name of the former world champion to his list of victims.
Opened in 2004 by the Morongo tribe, the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa is one of the largest tribal gaming facilities in the United States and home to a host of luxurious facilities that have made it a must-visit destination for local residents as well as visitors from around the world.
