For over a week, promoter Gary Shaw has been waiting for a call from Zab Judah's representatives. Shaw told BoxingScene.com that last Monday he contacted Judah's father Yoel to see if they were interested in facing WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley on July 17 on HBO. Yoel told Shaw he would speak to Zab and get back to him. To date, nobody has called Shaw.
Shaw began to wonder if Judah had gone missing. Shaw has to look no further because Judah has been found. In response to a story that appeared early this morning on BoxingScene.com, Judah issued a statement on his personal twitter page. Judah received numerous messages over BoxingScene's Bradley story and, in his own way, declined the fight but promised to go after Bradley and IBF/WBC champion Devon Alexander after a tune-up fight on July 16 at the Prudential Center in New Jersey.
"Bradley [is] not the first fight but he's going to get it too. First fight [is] a good tune-up, then Tim, then Devon. A good tune-up first, then these so-called punks are next," Judah said.
"I need New York and New Jersey to be real deep in the building [on] July 16 at the Prudential Center because its going down. I'm back!."
