Zab Judah Wins Comeback Bout
Former welterweight world champion Zab Judah stepped into a boxing ring and competed for the first time in just over three years on Saturday night.
Judah defeated Jorge Luis Munguia via TKO at the Sun National Bank Center in Trenton, New Jersey. After hurting his opponent in the first round, Judah blasted off a flurry of shots to earn the stoppage halfway through the second.
Prior to this bout, Judah last fought on Dec. 7, 2013, when he lost to Paulie Malignaggi by unanimous decision in an NABF welterweight title bout. That bout gave Judah his third loss in four bouts, prompting questions of if Judah had anything else left in the tank.
Prior to this bout, Judah talked with ESPN about how he got into shape for this bout.
"I have a lot left, and even though I’ve been off, I’ve been through numerous training camps," Judah said. "I sparred with [Floyd] Mayweather when he was getting ready for the [Manny] Pacquiao fight [in 2015]. I got in tremendous shape.
"A couple of fights fell through because of different difficulties, but I was always prepared, always in great shape. Still to this day, I’ve never been as heavy as 160 or 165. I have 20 years in the game, and I’m still at 140 pounds. I feel like I am a very disciplined fighter."
