The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport - By Mike Sin­Clair

YURI Fore­man, the un­beaten Jewish light-mid­dleweight, won all ten rounds on the score­cards of all three judges as he took a land­slide points de­ci­sion over Vin­roy Bar­rett in At­lantic City.

Fore­man, ranked in the world top ten by box­ing’s four main sanc­tion­ing bodies the WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO, took the de­ci­sion by scores of 100-90 on all three cards in his first fight for six months.

It was an easy re­turn as the 28-yearold Be­larus-born, Brook­lyn-based Fore­man cruised to his 26th suc­ces­sive pro­fes­sional victory over 33-yearold Bar­rett, a for­mer par­tic­i­pant in the Amer­ica TV Con­tender se­ries.

Fore­man, now hopes to se­cure a world ti­tle fight.
