Hasim Rahman (41-5-2, 33 KOs) looks for revenge against Oleg Maskaev (32-5, 25 KOs) live this Saturday from Las Vegas, Nevada. Rahman was on the wrong end of a 1st round knockout loss, which ended when he was knocked out of the ring, in November of 1999. Rahman’s will put his WBC Heavyweight Title on the line.

With the weight of the U.S. Boxing on his shoulders, Rahman looks to stop the sudden surge of European Heavyweight dominance and bring some glory back to the States. As mentioned above, Rahman seeks to do what Maskaev did to him almost 7 years ago, end the fight with a knockout. After shocking the world and knocking out, then Heavyweight King, Lennox Lewis in South Africa, Rahman’s career seemed to spiral downhill. He suffered three straight losses; a knockout loss to Lewis, a repulsive bump on his head forced a stoppage in his fight against Evander Holyfield, and finally a loss to Heavyweight slob John Ruiz. But Rahman has bounced back, winning his last 6 bouts, and claiming the WBC Heavyweight Title along he way.

Oleg Maskaev is looking to bring another Championship back to other side of the Atlantic. After his victory over Rahman, he suffered 3 losses in 5 fights within a 3 year span starting in 2000. In those three losses he was knocked out in each bout, but had been ahead in all the 3 fights before losing. Since his last loss in 2002, he has been victorious in 10 straight bouts, winning 8 of the bouts by knockout. Maskaev has proven to be a strong fighter who can knockout his opponents at any time. A unanimous decision victory over Sinan Samil Sam earned him this title shot that he surely not waste. More importantly one thing is clear; Maskaev does not fear Rahman.
