Wanna brush up on some basic boxing strategy? Yuri Foreman—the middleweight champion of the world who in his spare time is studying to be an Orthodox rabbi; and who in the meantime is preparing for a June 5 bout against Puerto Rican superstar Miguel Cotto—teaches you that the secret, particularly if you’re fighting a bigger opponent, is the counter-punch. When your opponent’s going for you, that’s when your opponent is most vulnerable.
Oh, you may recognize his sparring partner.
