THE BRONX - Yankee Stadium will feature its first boxing match since the 1970s tonight when Miguel Cotto faces Yuri Foreman.

Nearly 34 years after Muhammad Ali defeated Ken Norton, Cotto and Foreman will step into the ring to battle for the super welterweight championship.

Foreman, who is an Orthodox Jew who trains in Brooklyn, is the current champion, though Cotto has held the title three times.
