Top rated junior welterweight Zab Judah states that he apologized to his former foe, hall-of-famer Kostya Tszyu, during their ten year reunion in Moscow, Russia. Back on November 3 2001 in Las Vegas, the two boxers met in a very important fight with the WBC, IBF and WBA junior welterweight titles at stake. Judah started fast in the first, but he was knocked down and stopped by Tszyu in the second round. After the stoppage, Judah was very angry and became violent. He threw a chair, was pushing people and grabbed the throat of referee Jay Nady.

Judah traveled over to Moscow as a special guest of promoter Vladimir Hyrunov, who stages a show on Wednesday with Khabib Allakhverdiev challenging IBO 140-pound champion Kaizer Mabuza. Tszyu is the head trainer of Khabib.

When Tszyu and Judah came together, Zab apologized for his behavior in the aftermath of their fight.

"How can I hate a man who gave me the opportunity to take part in such a fight and earn money for my family? I did the same thing for him, so why should he not love me? We helped each other. I apologized to Kostya for how I acted after our fight. We shook hands and embraced each other as friends. We haven't seen each other in all this time. This is an absolutely amazing story. Eleven years have passed. And now we meet in Moscow, and what a way to meet. I thought this would be impossible. It was one of the best moments in my life," Judah said.

[QUOTE=mushahadeen]That is a really cool story. I wish Zab wasn't such a F-up. He had all kinds of talent.[/QUOTE] He was too green at the time but very talented , if he had of fought real smart he probably would have won , he hurt KT in the first and then was trying to stop him and it back...

A son apologizing to his daddy, it brings a tear to one's eye.
