Yuri Foreman, 29, a mazel toughie, a boxer and rabbinical student in Brooklyn NY, with 27 wins and no losses will face off against three time world champion and World Boxing Association super welterweight champ, Daniel Santos, who is a southpaw with 32 mins, 3 losses and 1 tie, and an amazing 23 knockouts. Their bout is on the Pacquiao-Cotto and will be broadcast in North America from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on HBO Pay Per View at 9 PM East Coast time. Santos, 34, who hails from Puerto Rico, won the bronze medal at the 1996 Olympics. Santos is repped by Don King, the famed ex-con American boxing promoter. Foreman is repped by some Jewish businessmen: Al Cohen, Al Roth, and Murray W.
Santos defeated Akmed Kotiev for the title and defended it against former world champion Luis â€œYori Boyâ€ Campas, Antonio Margarito, and Joachim Alcine. On the other hand, Foreman’s favorite food is Russian ravioli and Gefilte Fish. So it sounds like an even match up to me.
