Yuri Foreman Sparring in Gleason's Gym

Yuri Foreman, former world title beltholder, has been spotted sparring in New York recently.

Junior welterweight Ashley Theophane writes, "Former world champion, Yuri Foreman, was sparring this week in Gleason’s gym. I remained behind to watch him go through some rounds. He is a talented fighter who is studying to be a rabbi. I sparred with Yuri a few years ago and it was an enjoyable experience. I’m sure we’ll spar again in the future."

After suffering two consecutive losses, Foreman has spent some time out of the ring in order to recapture the fire that allowed him to begin his career with 28 straight wins. He last fought in March.
