Yoel Judah Confident Zab Will Stop Paulie Malignaggi

By Ryan Burton

Former champion Zab Judah is currently in the middle of his training camp for his December 7th showdown against fellow Brooklynite Paulie Malignaggi that takes place at the Barclays Center and will be televised by Showtime.

BoxingScene.com recently caught up with Judah's father and trainer Yoel to get his take on the fight. Judah said that even though the fight is still a month out, his son is in tip top shape and with him back in his son's corner there is no doubt that he will come out on top in the Battle of Brooklyn.

"It is going to be a good fight as long as it lasts. Zab is tremendous shape. He has a lot of confidence, he has his old Pops back in his corner. I shut it down. Paulie already know what it gonna be. Listen man we are going to do what we gotta do in this fight. We ain't taking no prisoners," the elder Judah explained.

In his last fight, Judah started slow against Danny Garcia but came on in the later rounds. When I asked Judah if he felt that was the version of Zab we will see on December 7th, he replied by saying that we will see the vintage Zab from the past.

"You are going to see the old Zab from like 10 years. The old Zab who threw punches in bunches with all the slick movement. Your going to see the while package," Judah stated while hinting that the fight won't go the distance. 

"This fight will go as long as it lasts. That's all I'm going to say."

Malignaggi has been stopped twice in his career, against Ricky Hatton and Amir Khan but both of those times the fights was stopped with him on his feet.  Yoel feels that his son's combination of power and speed make a stoppage victory very likely.

"He has never been hit by someone this fast, who hits this hard and this quick with this type of pressure," Judah told BoxingScene.com.

No way he stops Paulie, I don't see it. I see a close fight and it can go either way via decision.

The winner by a split decision........not sure who but that's my guess.

I think Zab could stop him if he comes in like he did for Garcia. This card might be worth the trip lol
