Former champion Yuri Foreman will return to the ring March 12 after rehabilitating from knee surgery.

Foreman will meet Top 10 contender Pawel Wolak at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev., according to a news release by the bout’s promoters, Don King and Bob Arum.

Foreman, a rabbinical student in Brooklyn, N.Y., injured his knee during his title defense loss to Miguel Cotto last June at Yankee Stadium. Cotto will headline the MGM Grand card in a title bout against two-division world champion Ricardo Mayorga.

The card will be announced Wednesday morning at a news conference in New York City. Showtime will televise the pay-per-view event.
