Rahman's co-manager, Steven Nelson, also confirmed the site of the bout as The Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Conn. Rahman (34-2, 28 knockouts) said yesterday he will relinquish the World Boxing Council belt, which he won by knocking out South African southpaw Corrie Sanders earlier this year.

Baltimore's Hasim Rahman will face Danell Nicholson on HBO's "Boxing After Dark" series on Oct. 7 with a possible No. 1 rating by the International Boxing Federation on the line. Russian Oleg Maskaev (20-2, 15 knockouts), who has beaten Rahman, will fight Kirk Johnson (27-0) in the main event of the card. The likely site is New York's Madison Square Garden. The IBF told Steve Nelson, Rahman's co-manager, that it planned to include Rahman in its top 10 - perhaps inside its top five - as early as this weekend.

On paper, the heavyweight fight between Hasim Rahman (31-2) and Marion Wilson (11-31-3) for the state title at Martin's West on March 1 appears to be a classic mismatch. Records, however, can be deceiving. Rahman, 27, has been ranked as high as No. 3 in the world, while Wilson has always been cast as an "opponent." Rahman, a Baltimorean, built his impressive record, which includes 26 knockouts, against a list of relatively obscure rivals. His two most meaningful fights -- against David Tua and, most recently, against Oleg Maskaev, ended with Rahman being counted out and dropped from the ratings.

NEW YORK -- Hall of Fame trainer Angelo Dundee, who had a young heavyweight fighting on the undercard of the ESPN2 boxing card, got a bit nostalgic walking into the Roseland Ballroom last night. "I remember dancing in this place 50 years ago," Dundee said. But it was no fox trot or tango when Baltimore heavyweight contender Hasim Rahman fought journeyman Michael Rush of Tampa, Fla., in the main event. It looked a lot more like slam dancing as Rahman (30-1, 25 KOs) pummeled Rush for four rounds before an overhand right opened a gaping gash over Rush's right eye late in the fifth round.
