Yuri Foreman Fights Tomorrow

Rabbi Yuri Foreman is scheduled to face veteran journeyman Jason Davis on Friday at Resorts World Casino in Queens, New York. This is Foreman's second fight since 2013.

Foreman's second comeback has moved slowly. After taking two years off due to issues with his management, Foreman won an eight round decision over Lenwood Dozier last December. Foreman, 35, is 33-2 with 9 KOs.

Davis (13-11-2, 4 KOs) is a 34 year old from Vancouver, Washington. He was stopped by a 4-12-3 fighter last August and is 1-1-1 in his last fights (all against opponents with losing records.

Davis started his career 11-1-1, but has won only two bouts since. From 2009 to 2011, Davis was good enough to be fodder for prospects and contenders. He faced and lost to Steve Forbes, Mauricio Herrera, Joel Casamayor, Breideis Prescott, and Frankie Gomez. He also fought to a No Contest against Joan Guzman. He's been competitive with lesser fights since.

Foreman-Davis is scheduled for eight rounds.
