Mazel Tov to Israel's Own Yuri Foreman - WBA Light Middleweight Champion of the World

This has nothing to do with Mitzpe Ramon, but everything to do with Israel. Yuri Foreman, born in Russia, raised in Haifa, Israel, and now three years into a four year course of study in Brooklyn to become an Orthodox rabbi, has just taken the World Boxing Association Light Middleweight Campionship of the World title from Puerto Rican Daniel Santos. In a 12 round fight in Las Vegas, Foreman won a unanimous decision against Santos, easily eclipsing the veteran Puerto Rican champio. Foreman was light on his feet, danced every round, and clearly controlled the fight from the second round onward. Watch Foreman's tremendous victory here, and raise a glass of L'chaim to the new Star of David wearing champion of the world, Yuri Foreman!

  1. There's nothing like a Jew who can kick some serious beitzim in.
