It seems that the December 7th fight between Amir Khan and Devon Alexander won’t be happening after all.
Instead of the fight there’s talk that a bout between 35-year-old Zab Judah (42-8, 29 KO’s) and former two division world champion Paulie Malignaggi (32-5, 7 KO’s) could happen instead on that date, according to Steve Kim.
It’s a decent fight if it can get made. With Malignaggi, you never know. The possible co-feature could be Keith Thurman vs. Jesus Soto Karass. Continue reading
After the Zab Judah loss to Danny Garcia in April, the Brooklyn product received much praise for his efforts. Judah battled back from two knockdowns to come on strong late, while the much younger Garcia faded. There is however one person who isn’t so impressed with Judah’s performance that night.
His father and former trainer Yoel Judah.
“I thought Zab should’ve won the fight, I really thought Zab should’ve knocked Garcia out,” Judah said. “That’s what he should’ve did. All this talk that he came close and he looked good, he knows I’m not going for none of that.” Continue reading
Danny Garcia & Peter Quilln Retain Titles In Thrilling Night of Brooklyn Boxing; Khan Wins Unanimous Decision From Sheffield, England
(Photo credit: Naoki Fakuda) NEW YORK (April 28, 2013) – In a thrilling night of boxing before an excitable crowd of more than 13,000 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, Danny “Swift” Garcia won a hard-fought unanimous decision over veteran Brooklynite Zab Judah to retain his WBA Super, WBC and Ring Magazine 140-pound titles. In the co-feature, Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin outworked Fernando Guerrero to retain his WBO Middleweight World Championship via a the seventh round technical knockout.
Garcia and Judah entered the arena with a trail of bad blood stemming from animosity throughout the event promotion. While both fighters started slow in a feeling-out process, Garcia began to gain momentum, visibly hurting Judah for the first time in the fifth. In the eighth round Garcia landed a crisp straight right hand that sent Judah to the canvas. The punch seemed to awaken something within the crafty Judah who turned the fight around in the tenth round. Continue reading
35-year-old Zab Judah (42-8, 29 KO’s) gave it a good shot tonight but in the end he was beaten by WBA/WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia (26-0, 16 KO’s) in a 12 round unanimous decision loss at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Judah was in command of the fight in the last three rounds of the fight, but unfortunately for him he ran out of time and ended losing. The scores were 115-112, 114-112, 116-111.
Garcia fought well in the first 8 rounds in using his right hand to do most of the damage. Judah did a good job of neutralizing Garcia’s left hook and jab. Garcia’s right hand proved to be enough for him to control the rounds and build up a big lead. However, the crowd seemed to motivate Judah to another level starting in the 9th round when he was able to land some really big shots that stopped Garcia in his tracks.
Judah continued to land the far bigger punches in rounds 10, 11 and 12 to dominate the rounds. Garcia kept firing back, but his punches weren’t nearly as significant as Judah’s. Continue reading

“He [Zab Judah] is just another guy in my way. They all say the same thing. They think they’re going to beat me…until we get into that ring.
