Zab Judah: I Came To Fight, It Just Wasn't There

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - Two weeks after his 33rd birthday, Paulie "The Magic Man" Malignaggi (33-5, 7 KO's) picks up his 33rd win in a unanimous decision victory over Zab "Super" Judah (42-9, 29 KO's) in front of his hometown crowd at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The fight, promoted by Golden Boy Promotions, headlined a four-fight SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING event.

Despite being knocked down in the second round, Malignaggi was able to regain his stride en route to a strong 116-111, 117-110, 117-110 victory which earned him Brooklyn bragging rights and a potentially bright future in the stacked welterweight division. In addition, he was awarded a special Brooklyn's World Championship belt designed by SARTONK.

"This is an emotional win for me," said Malignaggi. "It definitely allows me to continue boxing. If I had lost, I don't know that I would have wanted to continue. But this big win puts me in the right spot to fight in this division for lots of money...lots.

"Walking to the ring was pretty surreal. As a teenager I watched Zab fight and to walk into the ring and fighting against him was very surreal. Not that I never expected myself not to be successful, but it was still something very surreal," continued Malignaggi. "I felt like this showed that this sport can unify everyone. I looked up to this guy when I was coming up in the sport and he's one of the greats."

Judah said, "I came to fight and so did Paulie. It just wasn't there. This was a great opportunity and a great event. I wanted to be the King of Brooklyn. He wasn't tougher than me. He stayed on the outside and didn't engage."

Zab has lack of heart and is affraid to get punched in the mouth. Paulie even said it before the fight "Punching Zab in The Mouth Breaks His Will" Meh. He wasn't lieing. Zab don't take licks well.

Proud

I am proud of the professional job these two "trash talkers" did. I am sick and tired of the ghetto trash jive circus. FMJ, Broner and the other classless acts are way old. They could take a lesson form the Russians. To call any boxer names and suggesting they laid down shows your are a mind...

This was Judah's best fight in a while. He didn't start a fracass to avoid getting that ass beat (Mayweather), he didn't stop fighting in the second (Kahn) he made it through and got his flash in the second....Judah is only getting better and will probably fight for even longer than four rounds ...
