Ugandan boxer up in latest WBC rankings
font size    

Ugandan boxer Kassim Ouma's victory over Mexican Marco Antonio Rubio has earned him a better position in the latest World Boxing Council (WBC) rankings released earlier this week.

Ouma, who scored a split decision triumph over Rubio after a first-round knockout in the 12-round battle in Las Vegas last month, is now rated contender number 3 for the WBC super welterweight title.

Oscar Dela Hoya, U.S. pound-for-pound star, is holding the WBC super welterweight belt that he clinched last month after stopping Nicaraguan Ricardo Mayorga.

Ouma, "The Dream" in boxing circles, who retained his junior middleweight title of the North American Boxing Organization through the victory, was contender number 7 in the April rankings.

The other highly ranked Ugandan prize fighter is Japan-based Peter Okello, the heavyweight champion of Oriental and Pacific Boxing Federation, with a position of contender number 13.

Meanwhile, Commonwealth and ABU featherweight champion Jackson "Action" Asiku, who is due to defend his Commonwealth title against Briton Jamie Mckevier next week, has dropped to contender number 36, from 33 in April.
