Zab Judah Doesn't Rule Out Adrien Broner Showdown

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Former two-division world champion Zab "Super" Judah (42-8, 29KOs) is friends with WBA welterweight king Adrien Broner (27-0, 22KOs), but that friendship would not stand in the way of a potential showdown at 147-pounds. Judah returns on December 7th against Paulie Malignaggi at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. A week later, Broner will defend his world title against Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Judah wants to use his fight with Malignaggi as a springboard to a bigger opportunity with one of the lucrative names in his weight division, like Broner

"I'm King Kong. I'm Godzilla. I am boxing. I'm the best at 147-pounds. I'm confident. I'm hungry. I'm strong, my hands are lightning fast. There has still not been a fight where people have said 'Zab's hands have not been fast.' That's never been a question. My hands are still fast, my power is still great. Adrien Broner is a young friend of mine. I have a lot of respect for him and he has a lot of respect for me. But we are warriors, this is what we do," Judah told

"I look at this fight with Paulie as the Roman days, where there is only going to be one king and that king is me. No disrespect to no other fighter out there [at welterweight] but when it comes to 147-pounds - I'm back."

Zab wouldn't rule out a Hulk Hogan fight if it paid enough money.

Broner will end up like Jeff Lacy if he take this @ 147, he aint ready yet.

Honestly I think Zab will cause problems for Broner in the first couple of rounds but after Broner adapts...Zab will get knocked out. Broner is too strong and too fast for Zab. Heck, he might not get past Paulie and…

I am not going to trash Judah. He fought pretty valiantly against Garcia. May not be the worst fight Broner could take, but I'm sure he is not looking past Maidana.
