DOVER, Del. -- Former heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman will fight Mario Cawley in a 10-round bout April 16 at Dover Downs Slots.
Rahman, 36-5-1, is coming off a hard-fought unanimous decision over Al "Ice" Cole on March 11, his first win since he earned the heavyweight crown
with a shocking knockout of Lennox Lewis on April 22, 2001. Lewis later regained the title in a rematch.
Cawley, 22-11 with 16 knockouts, is known as a boxer who is not afraid to go toe-to-toe. His recent bouts include losses to former world champions
John Ruiz and Ray Mercer.
