Earlier today former WBA junior middleweight champion, Yuri Foreman (28-2, 8KO’s) participated in an open media workout at the Modell’s Sporting Goods flagship store in Times Square. Foreman will be making his much anticipated comeback next Wednesday, January 23, on the DiBella Entertainment card at BB King Blues Club in NYC.
Foreman, who will be in action for the first time in nearly two years, is part of a thrilling 10-bout card featuring a number of DBE’s top up-and-coming prospects. Foreman is scheduled to take on Brandon Baue (12-8, 10KO’s) in a six-round junior middleweight special attraction bout.
Below are photos from the workout.
Yuri Foreman has a big following in and around New York who will be happy to see him back in action. A few years ago, he was one of the top junior middleweights in the world following a string of big victories.
However, his loss to Miguel Cotto was his undoing, and he subsequently lost to Pawel Wolak and then stepped away from the ring. But he’s back now, and looks refreshed from his time away, and physically healthy and strong.
