Yuri Foreman To Fight Helen Thomas

Yuri Foreman To Fight Helen Thomas

Purim Spoof 2011

Yuri Foreman, the Belarus-born Israeli raised boxer has announced that his first fight after losing his championship belt to Miguel Cotto will be against recently retired White House correspondent Helen Thomas for the Heavyweight Title of Lebanese Descent.

“I just want to start rebuilding my career while doing something good for the Jewish people,” stated Mr. Foreman, who recites Psalms during his bouts.

Not one to be easily intimidated, Ms. Thomas stated, “I will knock him back into Germany and Poland, where he belongs.”

Mr. Foreman retorted, “I will only hit her in the face so as to not affect her on-camera appearance.”

Ms. Thomas has been training for years, she said, by beating up on Israel regularly.
