Boxing: Yuri Foreman loses junior middleweight title

NEW YORK — Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico stopped Israel’s Yuri Foreman in the ninth round to win the junior middleweight title, at the Yankee Stadium on Saturday night.
Foreman slipped in the seventh round and badly twisted his right knee, then slipped to the mat again later in the round. He gamely survived to the end but could hardly move around the ring, limping on a right knee that was already covered by a black brace and getting tagged by Cotto at will.
