Chat with Oleg Maskaev
Rahman faces Maskaev Saturday at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, live on HBO PPV, starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
Saturday's fight will be the second fight between the two heavyweights. In 1999, Maskaev rallied late and slammed Rahman with an overhand right in the eighth to the head that sent him through the ropes.
Maskaev has won his last 10 fights, eight by KO and two by decision. The 37-year-old native of Kazakhstan is 32-5-0, with 25 KOs. He grew up in Abai, Kazakhstan, where he worked on a farm and a coal mine. He joined the Russian Army, became a lieutenant, joined the Russian amateur boxing team, became a national champion and along the way stopped Vitali Klitschko in one round.
Send in your questions to Hasim and then return for the answers at 2 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
