Kassim Ouma Arrested For Battery Of Man Making Gay Advances
According to TMZ reports:
Former pro boxing champ Kassim Ouma was arrested for battery in L.A. on Friday — after knocking out a man who was allegedly making gay advances toward him … TMZ Sports has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us … the former IBF junior middleweight champion is telling investigators … he was hanging out in Hollywood early Friday morning when he struck up a conversation with a guy he just met.
Ouma says the two went back to the other man’s home for a drink … where the guy allegedly made a pass at the boxer.
We’re told … Ouma claims he politely declined multiple advances … but says when he got up to leave, the guy made one final move — and Ouma shoved him away.
The altercation then escalated … with Ouma allegedly knocking the guy out cold.
Cops were called to the scene — where the victim was treated and transported to a nearby hospital.
Ouma was ultimately arrested for felony battery causing great bodily harm.
We tried to contact Ouma for comment — but he’s still behind bars.
Can’t just go around knocking people out, but you can’t just let ninjas have their way with your boy p either. We get it.
For Kassim’s sake, he better have a good lawyer that can prove self-defense.
