  • You know you’re old when you remember when Ouma was the number one junior middleweight in the world.

    • I’m a helluva lot older than that, but yes. Physically he looks the same, but sure doesn’ fight the same. He was a total left handed bad ass back in 2001. HBO did a nice piece on him on Real Sports about him as a child soldier from Uganda. There was also a full length documentary about his life that circulated in film festivals. Interesting guy. Should probably hang them up though.

  • Bad scored. Ouma was slow but looked fit. So did Theophane who took the first 5 rounds, scoring with effectfull jabs. But he could not hold Ouma from scoring with body punches. The African warrior moved forward and the second part, the last 5 rounds had Theophane fighting for survival. It looked as if Theophane was finished in the 9th round when the ringlight was shut down. After 10 minutes the action was resumed and Theophane got on the bike and kept out of danger by dancing round the ring with Ouma trying to catch him. Ouma took at least 4 rounds and looked stunned when the scored were announced.
