Stadium Slugfest a winner

HBO announced that Saturday night's junior middleweight bout between Yuri Foreman and Miguel Cotto drew the highest rating of any of its boxing telecasts all year, a 3.9, and was watched by approximately 1.9 million viewers. The live crowd was a somewhat disappointing 20,272. Foreman, who was stopped in the ninth round after suffering a knee injury from a slip in the seventh, will undergo reconstructive surgery to repair a torn ACL Friday in New York.
