Zab Judah: Mayweather Jr. Will Knock Ortiz Out Early!

By Chris Robinson

There has been a definite buzz in the sport of boxing ever since Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced his forthcoming fight with Victor Ortiz. Mayweather will look to snatch the WBC welterweight crown from the 24-year old champion on September 17th inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in one of 2011’s biggest events.

At as Mayweather trains at his personal boxing gym just a few miles from the strip, some notable luminaries have stopped by to pay him a visit, including legendary DJ Clue, artists Flo Rida, Pleasure P, and Ray J, and fellow pugilists Andre Ward and former champion Zab Judah.

A little over five years ago, Judah and Mayweather used to have serious disdain for one another, dating back to an alleged sparring session between the two that had got out of hand. They settled their differences inside of the ring in April of 2006, with Floyd surviving a strong start before taking control and securing a comfortable decision.

A small riot would ensue in the tenth round of that bout after Floyd’s Uncle and trainer Roger Mayweather took to the ring to confront Judah, who moments earlier had cracked his nephew with illegal shots to the groin and behind the head. But time heals all wounds and there are no hard feelings from either side, with Judah paying Floyd a visit on numerous occasions during his training in this particular camp.

Judah is less than a few months removed from a disappointing 5th round TKO loss to Amir Khan, a fight that saw him relinquish the IBF belt he had regained just months prior. Often one of the more vocal characters in the sport, Judah had a much more somber tone when I spoke with him last month but insists he will fight on.

For now Judah seems content just watching his buddy Floyd prepare rigorously and even feels a stoppage victory isn’t out of the question.

“My boy Floyd Mayweather is looking real good. I’m thinking we [are] going to see a knockout, early!” stated Judah via his personal Twitter account.

As for his personal future, Judah had mentioned that he was interested in luring Oscar De La Hoya out of retirement.

I think Floyd would've eventually stopped Ortiz regardless.

I've come to realize Floyd haters and Tea Party Republicans are exactly the same people. Irrational, ignorant, and easily swayed.
