Jewish Boxer Yuri Foreman Wins Third Comeback Fight by Unanimous Decision
Former WBA world junior middleweight champion Yuri Foreman, continued his successful comeback on Wednesday night at the Roseland Ballroom, in Midtown Manhattan, winning a unanimous decision against Jamaal Davis. All three of the judges submitted the same score of the bout, 80-72, in favor of the aspiring rabbi from Brooklyn.
It was the fourth fight for Foreman since returning from a nasty knee injury suffered in a title defense match against Miguel Cotto in 2010 at Yankee Stadium.
Foreman told The Algemeiner he was pleased with his performance. “I felt great in the ring. I felt fresh, and sharp, and strong. It was as good a performance as it could be,” he said.
Asked whether he was happy with the status of his comeback, he responded in the affirmative: “Absolutely. According to our plan, we are there.”
Foreman, who lives in Brooklyn and is studying to be a rabbi, said he is uncertain as to who he will fight next; his only immediate plan is to take a week off to rest after this fight, and then get back to training.
