Boxing: Oz Faceoff for Undefeated Featherweights Aleem and Goodman

Las Vegas native/boxer Ra’eese Aleem’s (20-0) upcoming fight is in the Land Down Under. The undefeated featherweight is traveling to Australia to fight fellow undefeated fighter Sam Goodman (14-0) on June 17th.

This is the first time that Mr. Aleem will fight outside the United States. From his training camp here in Las Vegas, he said this about his upcoming fight:

“Stepping out of the USA for the first time in my career is my way of letting everyone in boxing know that I’m ready to do whatever it takes to get a title shot. I am fully prepared to leave everything in the ring and make a decisive statement by getting the knockout. I don’t want to let any decision be in the hands of the judges. I feel winning this fight outside of the USA, will show how serious I am about becoming world champion.”

The fight will be broadcast on June 17th on Showtime television at 10:00 PM Eastern Time.
