Weights From Brooklyn: Malignaggi 147, Judah 146

By Jake Donovan

Showtime is set for the first of back-to-back Saturdays of boxing quadruple headers to conclude a terrific 2013 season. 

Headlining this weekend's quartet of fights, Zab Judah squares off against Paul Malignaggi in a battle of ex-champions fighting for bragging rights as Brooklyn's best. 

The show takes place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The venue hosted Friday's weigh-in, with all of the televised fighters successfully making weight.

Malignaggi came in at the welterweight limit of 147 lb. for what marks his third straight appearance at Barclays Center. Saturday is his first fight back since losing his belt to Adrien Broner this past June. 

Judah's lone appearance at Barclays also ended in defeat, offering a brave showing in dropping a competitive decision to unbeaten 140 lb. champ Danny Garcia. Saturday marks Judah's return to the welterweight division, where he once reigned as lineal champ. The 17-year ring veteran came in light yet shredded at 146 lb. for Saturday's affair.

SHOWTIME Weigh-In Results:
Zab Judah, 146 lb. vs. Paul Malignaggi, 147 lb. - 12 rounds, welterweight
Austin Trout, 153.8 lb. vs. Erislandy Lara, 153.2 lb. - 12 rounds, super welterweight
Devon Alexander, 146.4 lb. vs. Shawn Porter, 146.8 lb. - 12 rounds, for Alexander's welterweight belt
Sakio Bika, 166.6 lb vs. Anthony Dirrell, 167.4 lb. - 12 rounds for Bika's super middleweight belt

Damn I just watched the bum ask Knicks vs Nets in my city now I gotta watch 2 more bum hometowners lol. Smh.

I can't see either knocking out the other so it will probably go the distance. Due to Pauli's speed and work rate, I can see him outworking Judah at this point.
