Alexander-Matthysse: Zab Says a Mistake For Devon

By David Rosenberg

During a recent interview, former two time champion Zab Judah on variety of topics including a possible clash between former WBC/IBF junior welterweight champion Devon Alexander And Lucas Matthysse.

In November Judah tasted the canvas in a very competitive fight in which the  former champion won a split decision versus the Argentina native. 

Boxingscene's Ryan Burton recently conducted an interview with Alexander's manager Kevin Cunningham and Mathysse's trainer Gabriel Sarmiento who both said they like the idea of a showdown between their fighters.

Judah, who has been in the ring with the likes of Miguel Cotto and Floyd Mayweather told fighthype.com's Ben Thompson - "Like I keep telling people, Lucas Matthysse was one of the hardest punchers that I ever fought in my life."

The Brooklyn native feels that Matthysse will be a tough matchup for Alexander.  He also feels that after a couple more fights that Matthysse will make a name for himself in the U.S. 

"Now Devon's going to take him on? I mean, Devon's a good, quick fighter, but after the showing he put on with Bradley, I don't know. One thing Matthysse is going to do, he's a hard puncher and he's going to bring it. Hopefully we'll see something big come out of it. Keep watching Matthysse, you'll see. After a couple of fights, then people will start saying, 'Okay, we gotta give Zab his credit because Zab did beat him.'"
