Schedule Update

Three Jewish boxers are tentatively scheduled to fight within the next two months. Rabbi Yuri Foreman, David Alaverdian, and David Kaminsky all have separate bouts set up.

Junior middleweight Foreman is scheduled to fight on June 19 at Buckhead Fight Club in Atlanta, Georgia, according to BoxRec. A former world champion, Foreman's record stands at 35-3 with 10 KOs. He defeated Jeremey Ramos by decision last December 5. That was Yuri's first fight in nearly four years. He was also ready to take on Jimmy Williams in March, but he became ill the night before the fight. His team pulled him out of the contest as a precautionary measure. As it turned out, Foreman had contracted covid-19, and entered into quarantine immediately upon returning home.

Alaverdian is a 3-0 super flyweight with 2 KOs. He mentioned on his Instagram page that he was preparing for a fight in Mexico on May 7. He last fought four weeks ago, a unanimous decision victory over Daniel Pacheco.

David Kaminsky announced on Instagram that he is scheduled to fight on June 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The bout will be televised on ESPN+. Junior middleweight Kaminsky is 6-1 with 3 KOs. A southpaw, David lost his last fight, a split decision to Clay Collard, on June 18, 2020.
