Yuri Foreman is happy with the pace of his progress after convincingly outpointing Alabama's Gundrick King in the second fight of his comeback at New York's Roseland Ballroom.

The 32-year-old former WBA world light-middleweight champion has adopted a low key approach to his ring return following a lengthy absence.

He came back with a points win over Brendan Baue in January and followed up by winning all six rounds on the cards of all three judges who scored him a 60-54 winner against King.

"I fought in January, my first after a two-year layoff and I felt rusty. This fight I felt much better," said the Brooklyn-based trainee rabbi, who is looking to get back to the top after losing his world title to Miguel Cotto in 2010 and subsequently undergoing knee surgery.

"I chose the path to go one step at a time, in smaller steps. I’m starting with six rounds, my next fight eight rounds and then 10 rounds," he added.
