A source with knowledge of the negotiations has advised BoxingScene.com that former junior middleweight champion Yuri Foreman (28-1, 8KOs) has accepted the proposed fight with Pawel Wolak (28-1, 18KOs), which is going to take place on the pay-per-view undercard to Miguel Cotto vs. Ricardo Mayorga on March 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. This will be Foreman's first fight since suffering a nine round TKO defeat to Cotto in June 2010.
Both Foreman and Wolak are expected to attend Thursday's Cotto-Mayorga press conference in New York City. Cotto, Mayorga, promoters Bob Arum and Don King, and female legend Christy Martin - will also be on hand.
