Cotto is a freakin midget with average power at 147, he wont hurt Foreman at 154. Yuri has more punching power than Cotto lol

Cotto hit harder at 140 than Foreman does at 154. Foreman is an Arum creation who is about to get stomped on.

Off topic again but what is a rabbi, what do they do?



[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]Soon-to-be rabbi [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] will defend his WBA junior middleweight (154 pounds) title against Puerto Rican former two-time welterweight (147 pounds) champion [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], at Yankee Stadium on June 5, even as a bar mitzvah party takes place at the same venue -- all for the first time in the history of the stadium.

According to a source with knowledge of the event, the Yankees will soon release a statement confirming that they have reached an agreement, along with fight promoter [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], CEO of Top Rank Promotions, to satisfy the family holding the bar mitzvah celebration while also having the venue's first professional boxing match.

Foreman (far right) and Cotto (near left) are pictured (above) with former world champion Felix Trinidad (middle).

According to the Associated Press, the bar mitzvah is for [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], the son of the lead bond lawyer for the financing of Yankee Stadium.

Ballan will be "bar-mitvahed" earlier in the day, and, in accordance with their agreement with the Yankees, the guests -- approximately 150 of them -- will spend the night of June 5 celebrating the boy at the stadium and watching Foreman-Cotto.

The family was using the two of the lounges in the Yankees Stadium to celebrate the bar mitzvah. The family will be allowed to use the lounges, and also, be furnished with approximately 150 tickets to the fight.

Arum told FanHouse earlier this week that he was "optimistic something can be worked out, perhaps by giving the families holding the bar mitzvah credentials for the fight."

Foreman (28-0, eight KOs) is the first Israeli to win a professional boxing title, a feat he accomplished with November's 12-round unanimous decision over Puerto Rico's Daniel Santos.

Foreman, who is studying to be a rabbi, could not be reached on Friday. But Foreman told FanHouse on Tuesday that he would love nothing more than to establish his own celebrity and following at Yankees Stadium, and that it would be extra special if the audience was a largely Jewish one.

"I would thank God for that opportunity. That would be very exciting and I would be very appreciative. When was the last fight at Yankee Stadium? That would be historical for me," said Foreman, a 29-year-old Brooklyn resident.

"That's an amazing irony, but it's still surreal until something like that get's done. But anything that you want, you can definitely pray for it. You can pray for the well-being of the fighters, for something that you believe in. And for all of the things that have happened," said Foreman.

"You can pray for guidance, for the opportunity, etc., etc.," said Foreman. "I think that no matter what happens, from the perspective of the Israeli people, seeing their countryman fight in defense of his title would be very, very good in a sport like boxing. That would open the eyes of everyone."

Arum told FanHouse earlier this week that the family had asked to use the stadium's monitors for photos and a filmography of Ballan, and that he was "optimistic" that a deal could be worked out between the fighters and the Yankees Stadium officials.

Arum promoted the last boxing match at the old Yankees Stadium in 1976, when Muhammad Ali lost a 15-rounder to Ken Norton against the backdrop of a police strike.

Cotto (34-2, 27 knockouts) has built a following at Madison Square Garden, where the fight was to be held on June 12 -- the eve of the annual Puerto Rican Day parade in New York City -- if something couldn't be worked out with Yankees' Stadium for June 5.

Cotto is 6-0, with three KOs at Madison Square Garden, including wins over Shane Mosley, Zab Judah, Joshua Clottey and Paulie Malignaggi.

12pm Eastern, is when the undercard starts, I'd guesstimate the Main Event as being around 2pm Eastern.

Am I the only one that finds hbo commentary attrocious?

Half the shit they say is as sensasionalist and ridiculous as what some of the idiots in the main forum spit out...

e.g. "Observation! Cotto Left Hook is making a comeback!!" after he threw it twice over 4 rounds... right.

Also, does anyone else think Foreman is an ex member of the Michael Flattley Irish Dancing troupe? Play and Irish Jig over the fight!

Edit: LOL, not anymore!
