King Raheem fights in the main event for Halquist Productions’ Battle at the Boat 92 at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma on June 1.
In March after a two year layoff from boxing, Raheem (32-3-0, 19 KO’s) dominated Santos Pakau (28-8-2, 11 KO’s) in the official comeback.
Raheem’s next test on his path to become a world champion will be Uganda’s veteran Justin Juuko (45-11-1, 30 KO’s). Juuko has fought some of the best in the world including: Floyd Mayweather Jr., Miguel Cotto, and Diego Corrales. He has also fought for the world title but all that was more than 10 years and has lost two of his last four by knockout.
In Raheem’s last fight at Battle at the Boat 91, Raheem was scheduled to go ten rounds against Santos Pakau in a match that was supposed to knock the rust off after not having fought in over two years. He may still need time to do that as Raheem went straight to work with the jab and landed the TKO victory 2:20 into the 2nd round.
