Yuri Foreman will have his second comeback fight at New York’s Roseland Ballroom on April 4.

The 32-year-old former world light-middleweight champion will face Gundrick King, winner of 18 of his 27 fights, over six rounds.

Brooklyn-based Foreman ended a two-year absence from the ring with a convincing six-round points victory over Brendan Baue in New York in January.

Suffering no reaction from the knee which required surgery after he suffered back-to-back defeats against Pawel Wolak and Miguel Cotto, Foreman is anxious to fight regularly to climb back up the world rankings.
