43-year-old Grady Brewer is from a family of boxers and a native of Lawton, Oklahoma. The former IBA and IBC Light Middleweight titleholder was the 2006 winner of the ESPN reality show, The Contender.

Outside the ring, Brewer works at the Goodyear plant in Lawton to support his wife and four children. He began his amateur boxing career at age 11, and won 40 of his 45 fights, as well as the Oklahoma Golden Gloves tournament.

As a professional, Brewer has made a career of taking on top-level opposition on short notice and spoiling their plans. In 2008, Brewer defeated future world champion Cornelius Bundrage by split-decision in a 12 round IBO title eliminator. He then captured the IBO title in 2009 by knocking out Albert Onolunose in the second round. He also holds a knockout victory over previously unbeaten prospect Fernando Guerrero, among many others.

35-year-old Said Ouali was born in the Moroccan city of Agadir, but moved to Maaseik, Belgium when he was only a few months old. With no real boxing circuit available in Belgium, Ouali, then 20-years old, moved to Newark, New Jersey, where he went 80-3 as an amateur boxer.

A southpaw, Ouali has spent most of his career fighting for Mayweather Productions, Floyd Mayweather’s promotional company and is now living in Las Vegas. Ouali’s most prestigious victory came against Argentina’s Hector Saldivia, who saw his 33-0 flawless win streak brought to an abrupt end. He won the IBO USBO Welterweight Title in 2006 with a sixth-round stoppage win over Paul Delgado.

Also scheduled for “Rumble on the River” action are:

Hometown rising star Juan Alejandro “Alex” Saucedo (14-0, 10 KOs) from Oklahoma City in an eight-round middleweight battle vs. San Marcos, Texas’ Mike Tutt (10-3-1, 4 KOs). Promoted by Top Rank and currently the hottest prospect to come out of OKC, undefeated Saucedo has served as a sparring partner for the great Manny Pacquiao.

Formerly #3 world-ranked contender Carson Jones (35-10-3, 25 KOs) will face rugged Liberal, Kansas, via Mexico’s Joel Vargas, a 20-fight veteran, in a welterweight six-rounder. Jones is a former USBA Welterweight, NABA Light Middleweight, WBC Continental Americas Light Middleweight and NABA USA Light Middleweight Champion.

In other action, Monterrey, Mexico’s Rolando Garza (4-0, 2 KOs) will take on Midwest City, Oklahoma’s Joe Strong (3-2, 1 KO) in a four-round junior middleweight battle; Oklahoma City’s Martin Morales (2-1, 1 KO) will face 34-fight veteran Jeremiah Torres of Belen, New Mexico, in an eight-round welterweight bout; and to start the action, Douro, Ontario, Canada’s undefeated Cody Crowley (2-0, 2 KOs) will take an early-career step up in class, as he faces 35-fight veteran Larry Smith of Dallas in a six-round junior middleweight bout.
