Schaefer Likes The Idea of Zab Judah-Mauricio Herrera

Zab Judah hasn't fought since a lopsided loss to Paulie Malignaggi in December, but the former two-division champ still has one of the biggest names in the sport. Not only does he have the name recognition, but Golden Boy Promotions CEO believes Judah has something left in the tank.
