He's Come to America: Karam Gaber 

We received news Tuesday night that 2004 Olympic gold medalist Greco-Roman wrestler Karam Gaber, regarded as the world's best and most exciting wrestler, has relocated from his native Egypt and is now living full-time in the U.S.

According to his brother, Adel Ibrahim, Karam is beginning to work on seeking U.S. citizenship. He also plans to continue wrestling as well as learning grappling. Negotiations are underway for him to train with, let us just say, the best grappling instructor in the New York region if not beyond.

Karam also may resume fighting in mixed martial arts events. In his one appearance, on Dec. 31, 2004, in the K-1 Dynamite card in Osaka, Japan, he was knocked out in the first round by Kazuyuki Fujita.

We will have more news to come on this developing story.
