Ghanaian boxer Osumanu Adama hopes to up his case for a crack at a world title when he takes on former world champion Roman Karmazin in an IBF Middleweight eliminator on 7 October at the Club Chicago, Burbank, Illinois, USA.
The IBO International Middleweight and USBA Middleweight champion has told the Ghana-based newspaper exclusively from his US base that this is his chance of a lifetime with a long term promotional deal with Oscar
De La Hoyaâ€™s Golden Boy Promotions and a world title fight in the pipeline should he prevail over the 38 year old Russian.
â€œItâ€™s like a world title fight for me, Iâ€™ve been waiting for this opportunity all my life and this is the chance. If I win this fight, it will open many doors for me especially as Golden Boy Promotions have promised me a contract and I will do it,â€ Adama nicknamed Machine Gun said via phone on Monday.
That is why Adama (19-2, 14 KOs) remains unperturbed with the fact that he is fighting against a former IBF Light Middleweight champion with a 40-4-2 (26 KOs) massive experience.
