Yuri Foreman welcomes baby boy

By Michael Woods

Boxer Yuri Foreman and his wife Leyla welcomed a baby boy into the world on Feb. 24.

The Brooklyn resident returned to the ring on Jan. 23 with a win over Brandon Baue on a card promoted by Lou Dibella in his first fight since March 2011.

No name for the baby, yet. Foreman, a 32-year-old junior middleweight, said the baby hit the scale at 7.5 pounds.

"Mom is good," he reported.

Also, his next fight could take place on April 4, giving him enough time to acclimate to the new arrival and get a good training camp in.
