BRONX, NY (April 15, 2010) - Tickets to the "Stadium Slugfest," Yankee Stadium's inaugural brawl featuring the world championship rumble between three-time world titleist MIGUEL COTTO and undefeated World Boxing Association (WBA) super welterweight champion YURI FOREMAN go on sale Tomorrow!  Friday, April 16, at Noon ET.

Promoted by Top Rank, in association with Miguel Cotto Promotions and Yankee Stadium, tickets to Cotto vs. Foreman are priced at $400, $300, $200, $100, $75 and $50, and can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com and all Ticketmaster outlets.  To charge by phone, 877-469-9849 or Tickemaster TTY 800-943-4327.  Foreman vs. Cotto will take place Saturday, June 5 at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, and will be broadcast live on HBO, beginning at 10:15 p.m. ET / 7:15 p.m. PT.

Foreman (28-0, 8 KOs), a 29-year-old from Brooklyn, NY, became the first orthodox Jew to win a world championship in nearly seventy years.  Born in Gomel, Belarus, and raised in Israel, Foreman emigrated to Brooklyn.  The 2001 New York Golden Gloves Champion turned pro in 2002 and began studying to become a rabbi three years ago.  Foreman knocked down defending champion Daniel Santos in the final round en-route to a decisive and unanimous decision victory and Israel's for world title.

Cotto (34-2, 27 KOs), from Caguas, Puerto Rico, has held a world title every year since 2004 and will be looking to extend that streak with his challenge of Foreman.  Puerto Rico's most exciting fighter, Cotto held the World Boxing Organization (WBO) junior welterweight crown from 2004-2006, successfully defending it six times before vacating it to capture the World Boxing Association (WBA) welterweight title at the end of 2006, a title he held for nearly as long.  He won his second welterweight title in February 2009, knocking out Michael Jennings in the fifth round to become the WBO welterweight champion.  He lost the title in his second defense, last November, to Manny Pacquiao.  Notable scalps on Cotto's belt include Sugar Shane Mosley, Zab Judah, Joshua Clottey, Paulie Malinaggi, and Demarcus Corley.
