Yuri Foreman-Miguel Cotto bout potentially set for Yankee Stadium

Submitted by admin on February 19, 2010 – 4:46pm

Boxing may once again be returning to Yankee Stadium nearly 30 years after Muhammad Ali fought Ken Norton at the old venue in the Bronx.

On Friday, the Yankees announced that they’ve agreed to accommodate a family that scheduled a bar mitzvah for June 5, the date that promoter Bob Arum wants to stage Yuri Foreman’s junior middleweight title defense against Miguel Cotto at the opulent ballpark.

Although it is not yet clear what accommodations were made, the bar mitzvah for Scott Ballan is still scheduled for the same day.
