On comeback trail, Rahman to fight June 19

May 19, 2010|By Sports Digest


Former heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman, a Baltimore native, will continue his comeback bid by fighting fellow American Shannon Miller next month. The bout is set for June 19 at the Niagara Falls (N.Y.) Conference Center and will be formally announced at a news conference today, promoter Nick Garone says. This will be the second fight for the 37-year-old Rahman (46-7-2) since he lost to Wladimir Klitschko in December 2008 in Germany. In his only fight since, Rahman stopped Clinton Boldridge in the first round in March. Miller (16-4-0) hasn't fought since July, when a bout against Terrell Nelson was stopped in the third round after an accidental head butt and ruled a no-contest. Miller has won only two of his past six fights.
