"Bazooka" Quartey Wants Oscar De La Hoya

30.06.05 - DiBella Entertainment's Ike "Bazooka" Quartey, fresh off his convincing victory over Verno Phillips in Memphis on June 11 on HBO, says he is ready to take aim at former champ Oscar De La Hoya. "I beat Oscar when I fought him the first time even though he got the decision," says Quartey, the gunner from Ghana. "I know I can handle him again. I am ready!"

De La Hoya apparently has Winky Wright, Felix Trinidad and Fernando Vargas on the radar screen for his return to the ring.

Said promoter Lou DiBella: "Ike clearly illustrated that he has plenty left in the tank. He's poised for another shot at De La Hoya, and can take it to Oscar in what would be a great fight. Ike is as deserving of a rematch than Fernando Vargas, and Felix Trinidad has retired. De La Hoya/Quartey can be a big event once again."
