CHICAGO, December 17, 2010 – The last time Osumanu Adama fought here at the UIC Pavilion, he lost a very close decision to hometown favorite Donovan “Da Bomb” George.  This time, it wasn’t close, as he took on rugged, but faded middleweight veteran Angel “El Torro” Hernandez in a scintillating 12 round battle.

Hailing from Accra, Ghana but now based out of Joliet, Illinois’ Osumanu Adama (159.5 lbs., 17-2, 13 KO’s) faced in Chicago’s Angel “El Torro” Hernandez a grizzled, face-first slugging veteran who had gone the distance with the once vaunted and oft-avoided Ronald “Winky” Wright fighting for the latter’s International Boxing Federation Junior Middleweight title.  But that was in November 2003, some eight years and six pounds lighter ago.  He’d developed a bit of a reputation as a dangerous, plodding but sometimes erratic spoiler, erasing the “0” for then undefeated middleweight prospect Louis Turner in October 2007 and more recently garnering a unanimous decision over rising celebrity’s son prospect James McGirt in January 2009, yet he was stopped in yet another war against Peter Manfredo, Jr. for the vacant International Boxing Organization’s middleweight title in May.  (continue reading…)
