Jewish Boxer Yure Foreman takes WBA Junior Middleweight Title

And he’s a rabbinical student! Check out the article on Yuri Foreman here. I like this quote:

“It’s a fact we had 12 tough rounds, but thank God every time I got back into the ring for more I said prayers in my heart, and it worked,” he said after the fight. “If you ask me what my strength is, I’ll tell you it’s in my brain. I run around the ring and keep thinking. I think I need to prove to everyone, not just myself, to the whole world that Jews know how to fight, that Jews know how to give a good fight and not surrender. I said it right after the fight, when they pushed the microphones at me and the cameras clicked. I said I wanted to prove that Jews are not a weak people that can be made to bend down and surrender, that Jews know how to fight and win. Actually, there are a lot of Jewish champions in the history of sports.”
