Former boxing champion Kassim Ouma just landed himself in a world of trouble. Ouma was arrested this past weekend in Los Angeles for knocking a man out cold after the man allegedly made several gay advances towards the boxer.
According to reports, the former IBF junior middleweight champion told police he was in a bar and struck up a conversation with a guy in the establishment. After enjoying each other’s conversation, they went back to the man’s apartment for a drink. That’s when Ouma says the unidentified man began pushing up on him. Kassim Ouma claims to have denied the man’s advances politely but the man refused to take no for an answer.
When Ouma got up to leave, he says the man made one more attempt and Ouma shoved the man backwards. The man didn’t take too kindly to being shoved because the altercation escalated to the point Ouma knocked the guy out. Police were called to the scene of the dispute and the victim was taken to a nearby hospital where he was treated for his injuries.
Kassim ouma was eventually arrested for felony battery and causing great bodily harm. He nor anyone from his camp have commented on the situation as Ouma is still in jail.
