At the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney Australia, Asloum became the first French fighter to win a gold medal in over 60 years. From AP-
Former French Olympic champion Brahim Asloum is retiring from boxing.
The 30-year-old boxer said on French television that he is ending his career after a bitter dispute with cable channel Canal Plus, the longtime promoter of his fights.
Asloum became the WBA light flyweight champion in December 2007 with a unanimous decision over defending champion Juan Carlos Reveco of Argentina.
I’m going to make a guess that Asloum’s retirement is very short lived.
