Former WBA super welterweight champion Yuri Foreman tore the meniscus and stretched ligaments in his right knee when his knee gave out in round seven against Miguel Cotto on Saturday night in Yankee Stadium. He will under go surgery and be out of action for an undisclosed period.

It has been confirmed that it was Foreman’s trainer Joe Grier who threw the towel in the ring in round eight. Referee Arthur Mercante Jr. however ruled Foreman could continue and the bout went on one more round.

According to East European press reports, WBO #1 Dmitry Pirog (16-0, 13 KOs) and Daniel Jacobs (20-0, 17 KOs) will collide for the vacant WBO middleweight belt former held by Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez. The bout is earmarked for the July 31 card headlined by Juan Manuel Marquez-Juan Diaz II in Las Vegas.

Martinez, who still holds the WBC super welterweight and middleweight championships, will be accompanied by his trainer Gabriel Sarmiento and advisor Sampson Lewkowicz at the 21st Annual International Boxing Hall of Fame weekend, beginning June 10th – 13th. Martinez is keeping himself in top physical condition as he awaits his next opponent to be announced at either super welterweight or middleweight. The Argentina-born world champion is now residing in Oxnard, California.

Martinez’ countryman, longtime WBO flyweight champion Omar Narvaez (30-0-2, 19 KOs), has relinquished the WBO flyweight belt and will remain as WBO super flyweight champion after moving up to win that vacant title in his last fight.
