About Hasim Rahman
After debuting as a professional boxer in December, 1994, Hasim Rahman won 29 straight bouts. At that time Rahman held the United States Boxing Association and International Boxing Federation Intercontinental titles. In April 2000, Rahman, with a record of 31-2, earned a title shot from the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion, Lennox Lewis. Rahman stepped into the ring as the underdog but showed the world he was a champion by knocking Lewis out in the fifth round to become the new Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World. After two years out of the spotlight, Hasim Rahman has come out and shown his championship form by remaining undefeated in his last 5 fights. Rahman is ready to once again fight for the heavyweight championship of the world by taking on current title holder Vitali Klitschko, tentatively scheduled for April 30 in Madison Square Garden.
