News Update

A couple of bits of general news about Jewish boxers from this weekend.


Yuri Foreman was inducted in the Jewish Sports Heritage Association Hall of Fame in Lawrence, New York. Boyd Melson was there to support Yuri, the first ever Israeli world champion. Foreman, the best Jewish boxer of the 21st century, was followed by a film crew for an upcoming documentary about his life called Lion of Zion.

Foreman then spoke at the New York State Boxing Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Jewish boxers Al Singer, Solly Krieger, and Herbie Kronowitz were all posthumously inducted today.

Foreman, who hopes to make a comeback soon, should be a shoe-in for New York State Boxing Hall of Fame and the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame when he becomes eligible. Singer and Krieger have already been inducted to the latter.


Dr. Stefi Cohen sat near the ring for yesterday's incredible fight between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano for the legitimate lightweight championship of the world. The atmosphere in Madison Square Garden was electric as Taylor and Serrano battled in a fight for the ages.

"What a war!" Cohen declared after the fight. Taylor took a close split decision victory to retain the lightweight title. Cohen is tentatively scheduled to fight next on May 14.
