Maybe he’ll fare better in yeshiva than in the ring.

Yuri Foreman, boxer and aspiring rabbi, lost his first bout on Saturday night, the first defense of his World Boxing Association super welterweight title. Wearing a black brace on his right knee, a result of a previous injury, he slipped on the wet canvas in the seventh round and twisted the knee. Foreman fought on in pain, hobbled and limping, until the fight was stopped on a technical knockout in the ninth round.
