Yuri Foreman and Richar Abril Headline Ten Bout DiBella Card
By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent
New York, NY (June 2, 2016)– The latest comeback of former World Junior Middleweight champion Yuri Foreman is a featured on a ten bout card at Resorts New World Casino in Queens, New York, promoted by Broadway Boxing & Lou DiBella Entertainment, on Friday evening, June 3, 2016.
Foreman, 33-2 with nine knockouts, Brooklyn, New York, is favored to win by fifth round stoppage over well-traveled Jason Davis, 13-11 with four knockouts, Vancouver, Washington. Davis was stopped by 4-12-3 David Lopez last August in Tacoma Washington, but he has gone the eight or ten round distance four times, including going the ten round distance with former world lightweight champion Joel Casamayor. If Davis shows up in good condition, he could run the marathon away from Foreman for all eight rounds and force Foreman to settle for a decision, in which case Foreman will win every round anyway.
Former World Lightweight champion Richar Abril, 19-3 with eight knockouts, Isla De La Juventud, Cuba, returns to the ring after a 21 month absence after he won the WBA world title, is favored to win a ten round decision over dangerous journeyman Jerry Belmontes, 21-8 with six knockouts, Corpus Cristi, Texas. Abril upset 21-0 Valentyn Golovko at BB King Blues Club & Grill by eight round majority decision this past January. Abril is a higher tier opponent, and Belmontes could be stopped if he is not careful.
