I did not know the Junior Middleweight contender Yuri Foreman (27-0, 8 KOs), one of the few top-level Jewish boxers competing today, was also training to be a Rabbi. Now that would be something -- a Rabbi who also holds a world boxing title.

Foreman faces off against Contender alum Cornelius "K9" Bundrage (29-4, 17 KOs) in an IBF junior middleweight eliminator. I'd like to say it will be an interesting fight, but both have a tendency to stink up joints -- albeit in different ways: Bundrage loves to hold and fight dirty on the inside, whereas Foreman is feather-fisted and is content to spend a fight pecking away with his jab.
