Boxing : Student Rabbi Scores his 9th Knock-out!

First, a correction: In the previous article, it was reported that Yuri Foreman would be fighting Michael Oliveira on Nov 12. He actually fought against Javier Gomez.

Chabadnik Dmitriy "Star of David" Salita lost a ten-round bout against Gabriel Bracero on Nov 9 in Brooklyn. It was by unanimous decision that went the full ten rounds, as his opponent scored a lot of points in the 8th--10 rounds. On Nov 12, Russian / Israeli Rabbinical student Yuri Foreman recorded a resounding first-round knockout against Javier "Pelon" Gomez in their scheduled 8-round fight in FL. Salita's professional record stands at 35 wins, 2 losses, and one draw, with 18 knock-outs, and Foreman's record is 32 wins, 2 losses, one no-contest, and 9 knock-outs.

Ice Hockey (NHL)--Nashville Predators' Eric Nystrom has scored 5 points (4 goals and an assist) in 18 games this season. He has been assessed 21 penalty minutes. Calgary Flames' Michael Cammalleri has 11 points (8 goals and 3 assists) in 11 games, and only has 4 penalty minutes this season.
(DEL)--Evan Kaufmann has 14 points (6 goals and 8 assists) in 14 games with the Neurmberg Thomas Sabo Ice Tigers this season. He has 12 penalty minutes and has a +9 rating thus far this season.

May all the Jewish Jocks continue to make us proud and continue their winning ways.
