Note for the purposes of this thread lets consider Max Baer a jew on the basis that he identified himself as such and wore the star of david on his trunks

Heavyweight: Max Baer
Light Heavy: Battling Levinsky
Welterweight: Barney Ross
Lightweight: Benny Leonard
Featherweight: Abe Atell
Bantamweight: Abe Goldstein

Any thoughts, who am I forgetting.

Max Baer was half Jewish from his mothers side. Although any amount of Jewish blood coming from the maternal side makes a person a legitimate Jew.

Judah is not a jew, he is a member of the israelites, a religious sect that accepts jesus as its savior. I believe they do keep kosher, but based on its acceptance of jesus in this fashion, Zab is clearly not a Jew.
