Fight fans have grown accustomed to pre-fight brawls, scuffles at weigh-ins and even testy behaviour between two rival fighters after the fight, yet yesterday, light-welterweights Zab Judah and Hevinson Herrera took things one step further. Attempting to weigh-in ahead of today’s scheduled ten-rounder in New York – a fight that would have marked former welterweight king Judah’s first fight since December of 2013 – the New Yorker and the Colombian got into a heated exchange before having a chance to step onto the scales.
According to a piece by Dan Rafael of ESPN.com, the two fighters were stood next to each other filling out their medical forms, when the trouble started.
On Thursday, September 10, promoter Greg Cohen of Greg Cohen Promotions and Super Judah Promotions, in association with GH3 Promotions and David Schuster’s Winner Take All Productions, will continue GCP’s “Championship Boxing” series with a world-class event, once again at The Space at Westbury in Westbury, New York.
Zab Judah will return to the ring in September at 140 lbs after an almost 2 year layoff, which saw an out of sorts version of the former two weight world champ drop a wide points decision to fellow New Yorker Paulie Malignaggi in his last fight in December 2013.
Speaking to fighthype.com, Judah, who has inked a deal with Greg Cohen’s promotional outfit to co-promote his return alongside his own Super Judah Promotions firm, has addressed the Mayweather/Berto issue, insisting that whatever the result may be, Berto will grab the opportunity presented to him with both hands;
Although he is now 37 years old and hasn’t boxed since a decision loss to Paulie Malignaggi in December of 2013, former two weight world champion Zab Judah will return to the ring in September after signing with Greg Cohen’s promotional outfit.
Cohen will work alongside Judah’s own “Super Judah Promotions” to stage his return, which will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network, and following that, the New Yorker says he would like to win one more championship before finally calling it a day.
