Top Rank has reached a preliminary agreement to stage WBA junior middleweight champion Yuri Foreman’s June 5 defense against former welterweight champion Miguel Cotto on June 5 at Yankee Stadium. Nothing signed or finalized at this point, but it looks good.
The weigh-in for world champions Devon Alexander and Juan Urango will take place today at 5:30PM in the Mohegan Sun Shoppes concourse area (near the Coach store). The weigh-in is open to the public.
WBC #1 super welterweight Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. will be dropped from the WBC ratings until June while serving a six month suspension imposed by the NSAC. The “Son of the Legend” will have to take some tests when he returns to see if he can remain at the 154lb limit.
