A veteran of nearly 17 years in the pro game, Judah owns wins over Micky Ward, Junior Witter, DeMarcus Corley, Cory Spinks, and Lucas Matthysse, while also battling the likes of Floyd Mayweather, Amir Khan, Kostya Tszyu, and Miguel Cotto.

Makes no sense to sign Jab as all Jab does is cause trouble and controversy and at 37 not worth it. :bottle:

Zab has pull at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn so it's easy to see why GBP might be interested. He needs to win some good fights however.
