Bradley's Promoter Wonders Where Zab Judah Has Gone

By Rick Reeno spoke with promoter Gary Shaw, who is clueless as to the whereabouts of former two division champion Zab Judah. WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley is scheduled to return on July 17 on HBO. He was going to fight Marcos Maidana, who recently withdrew with a back injury.

Judah was one of the names HBO had suggested as a possible replacement for Maidana. Last Monday Shaw reached out to Zab's father, Yoel Judah, to see if they were interested in a fight with Bradley on HBO. Yoel told Shaw that he would speak with his son and get back to him in a few days. More than a few days have passed and nobody has called. Shaw tried to follow-up with them but nobody has answered the phone and the ability to leave a message has been taken away because the voicemail was left full.

Judah has whispered around about the possible fight, but nobody from his side has contacted Shaw to express their interest. On more than one occasion, Judah publicly challenged the champions at the weight to step up, which makes Shaw scratch his head on why nobody from his side responded.

"HBO had mentioned his name. I called Yoel to see if Zab was available and asked him if they were interested in fighting Bradley. Yoel told me he would speak to his son and get back to me in a couple of days. That was last Monday. Nobody has called. I tried calling again, there was no answer and the voicemail was full," Shaw told

Alexander should just move up in weight and forget about this candy ass and fight Berto if Berto aint scared too. Then when Bradley doesn't have any other opponent at 147 and him and Alexander is the fight HBO might…
