Hasim Rahman: A Special July 4 Message from America's Heavyweight Champ
30.06.06 - By Hasim Rahman I hold this truth to be self-evident, that all heavyweights are NOT created equal. This is my Declaration of Fisticpendence. While you are enjoying the July 4 holiday, look at the evening's activities as a preview of the REAL fireworks that will be exploding when I defend my WBC heavyweight title against No. 1 contender Oleg Maskaev..
In six weeks I will free myself from my mandatory by avenging my loss to Maskaev so that I can move ahead and unify the heavyweight titles and prove that all heavyweight champions are not created equal too!
Attached, please find an audio message I recorded especially for the Independence Day holiday. Only six more weeks until I ring Maskaev's bell.
