Rahman stops Boldridge – Third Fight with Tua on the Horizon!

Former undisputed and two-time World Heavyweight Champion Hasim “The Rock” Rahman (46-7-2, 37 KOs) began his comeback in impressive fashion Friday night at the Beaumont Club in Kansas City, Missouri. Fighting in a special-attraction bout on Danger Fire Promotions’ “March Mayhem” event, Rahman knocked out opponent Clinton Boldridge at 2:50 of the first round.

The heavy-punching former champion knocked Boldridge down with a good right hand and then finished him with a flurry culminating with a right hand/left hook to the head.

Boldridge was down for an extended period.

Rahman weighed in at 258 lbs, down from 300+ and is back in the gym today, getting ready for his anticipated third match-up with David Tua in June.
