Statement from Lou DiBella on Yuri Foreman’s shock retirement

“Yuri Foreman has been training hard for his fight on June 7th against Jorge Melendez. At this moment, there is a dispute within Yuri’s team that does not involve DiBella Entertainment. Yuri has worked very hard on his comeback to get to an opportunity like this. Lou DiBella and DBE have a great working and personal relationship with Yuri. We are awaiting a phone call and hope to see him fight on June 7th at MSG. This will be resolved very shortly.”

Editor’s Note: Melendez vs. Foreman is one of the TV fights announced for the Cotto-Martinez pay-per-view telecast, but Foreman posted the following on his Facebook page about an hour ago:

Dear Friends! Unknowingly I signed a very harmful contract regarding my boxing career. I tried all possible ways to free myself from it, but nothing else I can do, than announce my retirement from boxing. So from now I’m on to bigger and better things. Much blessings!
