Judah Likely Back in The Fall, Not Against Peterson

By Mike Coppinger

Zab Judah is targeting a fall return, likely September or October, with a fight against a top junior welterweight the goal.

The former undisputed welterweight champion has been linked to possible bouts against Mike Alvarado and Lamont Peterson, but a source with knowledge of the talks for both fights says that Peterson doesn't have much interest in the matchup. Maxboxing's Steve Kim first reported that the proposed Judah-Peterson bout wasn't gaining traction.

Judah (42-8, 29 KOs) is coming off a loss to Danny Garcia in a spirited effort.

Judah is never gonna be much more than a gatekeeper at this stage.

Judah should fight peterson on the undercard of garcia matthysse but because gbp gunna protect garcia, they gunna give matthysse a rematch with judah. Garcia gunna hide forever

[QUOTE=bigdaddysback;13483232]Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't Alvarado a Top Rank fighter and Zab Judah is with Golden Boy?[/QUOTE] Nope, Super Judah Promotions (usually Main Events or whomever the bigger promoter is for the event).
