This weeks key match takes place at Yankee Stadium in New York City, where Miguel Angel Cotto 34-2 (27), takes on undefeated Yuri Foreman.

For Foreman, 29, it will be a huge step-up in competition while Cotto, who hails from Puerto Rico, is also 29, has been only stopped twice and has faced much stiffer foes.

Foreman, 28-0, a native of Belarus, now living in Brooklyn, N.Y., has another problem, in that he only has a few recorded knockouts, and Cotto’s only vulnerability seems to be his chin.

Cotto has a secondary problem, as he gives up four inches in height and five inches in reach.

Tough fight to pick, as boxer (Foreman) vs. puncher (Cotto) usually are.

As a pick is needed, I’ll stick with the heavier punching Cotto by late TKO.
