Foreman on the Future

Yuri Foreman suffered his second career loss, and second in a row, eight days ago. Foreman appeared flat as his opponent, Pawel Wolak, outhustled the former beltholder at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. After the fight, Foreman claimed he wasn't himself and, as for the future of his career, he would have to think things over.

But Foreman recently told Michael Woods of The Sweet Science, "After a break, to recharge my batteries, I will be hungry again. I love sports, I love boxing a lot. But I have been doing it for 18 years. As I get ready for fights, my preparation is good, I train so hard. But this one, I was doing on habit. I was not as driven."

So it seems that Foreman (28-2, 8 KOs) will be back in the ring. For the past two years, he has only faced world class opposition. But, coming off of two losses, perhaps his next fight should be against a capable journeyman before he steps up the competition once again.
