Junior middleweights Yuri Foreman and James Moore to clash for Foreman’s NABF title in Atlantic City on December 13 on Showtime.

In a sensational matchup of foreign-born, New York-based junior middleweights, unbeaten Yuri Foreman, 26-0 (8 KOS), a native of Belarus who has also lived in Israel, will battle the very popular James Moore, 16-1 (10 KOS), a native of County Wicklow, Ireland, on Saturday, December 13, at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

At stake will be Foreman’s NABF title. The 10 round fight will be part of a Showtime broadcast headlined by the rubber match between WBO junior welterweight champion Kendall Holt and Ricardo Torres. Promoting the show is Top Rank, Inc.

The well-conditioned Foreman, 28, is a perpetual motion machine who in his last five outings won decisions over fighters with a cumulative record of 118-17-2. The hard-punching Moore, the former captain of the Irish national amateur team, won an 8 round decision over Christian Lloyd Joseph in his last bout in August.

“I’ve always said I wanted tough fights, and Yuri is a great challenge for me because he’s fast and elusive,” said the 30-year-old Moore, a highly regarded body puncher who is trained by Lennox Blackmoore.

“We both came to the United States with the same dreams, so this is a great crossroads fight for both of us. I am really looking forward to it.”

Ticket information will be available shortly.

James Moore is rated #97 on BoxRec, and not ranked by any sanctioning organization. Why doesn't Foreman fight the English Jamie Moore, ranked #10 by BoxRec, and a much better fighter than the Irish James Moore? Yuri Foreman is ridiculously overprotected.
