Promoter Bob Arum was all aglow in the press room as he introduced Israeli fighter Yuri Foreman of Haifa, who is the new WBA Super Welterweight Champion.  Haifa defeated Daniel Santos of Puerto Rico tonight in an undercard fight on the Pacquiao-Cotto card at MGM Grand.  As a Jewish American himself, Arum was very proud of Israel producing its first boxing championship.

Arum then brought on Manny Pacquiao who was bandaged from a procedure to drain blood from his ear. Pacquiao was in great spirits and even sang a chorus of ‘Sometimes When We Touch’ as a teaser for his concert later tonight at Mandalay Bay.

Cotto was ordered to UMC by the boxing commision as a safeguard. Cotto said he was feeling alright, “Just beat up but nothing unusual”.
