Yuri Foreman comeback info
By Michael Woods
I saw Yuri Foreman running this morning. The Park Slope resident was hustling up 7th Ave. I rudely interrupted his progress.
"What's up, Yuri? Getting some roadwork in?"
"Running to the store, actually," answered the ex-junior middleweight titlist. "Gotta get some diapers for the kid."
"Run!" I said. "But quick, any word on your comeback fight?"
Foreman (age 32; 28-2 record) last fought in March 2011, and then took a break, to assess his career, and recharge.
"We're looking for a card to be on. Kathy Duva has a card in January at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut," he said.
Foreman was with Top Rank of Las Vegas and is now a promotional free agent. Bruce Silverglade at Gleason's is checking out potential spots for his comeback and has been in touch with Duva. Foreman said he should know more within a couple days.
