Foreman Scheduled to Return

Yuri Foreman is scheduled to return to the ring on November 17 at the Paramount Theatre in Long Island, New York. The former WBA junior middleweight champion has not fought since March of 2011.

In his last fight, Foreman lost to Pawel Wolak in a flat performance. That fight came after he snapped his ACL while losing his title belt to Miguel Cotto in 2010. At 28-2 with 8 KOs, those two losses are the only Foreman has experienced as a professional boxer. Following the Wolak fight, the first Israeli world champion in the history of the sport took some time off.

Foreman, who is now 32 years old, will likely face soft competition in his first fight back in twenty months. That has been a rare occurrence of late for Foreman; he has fought world class competition in his four previous clashes. And before that, Foreman faced quality fighters. No opponent has been named as of yet for Yuri's scheduled six round affair next month.
