Zab Judah Signs With Main Events, Returns in July

Totowa, NJ - Main Events and Super Judah promotions are pleased to announce they have entered into an agreement to co-promote Brooklyn's electrifying, Zab "Super" Judah.

Judah (38-6, 26 KO’s), the former undisputed welterweight champion, former IBF and WBO junior welterweight champion will return to the ring in mid-July, when he makes his first ever appearance at Newark's Prudential Center.

The 32 year old Judah began boxing at the age of six and compiled an amateur record of 110–5. Zab was a two-time US national champion and three-time NY Golden Gloves champion. In his last professional bout on November 6, 2009 Zab scored a second round TKO over Ubaldo Hernandez.

He has decided to go back down in weight and begin campaigning as a junior welterweight, with an eye toward recapturing the championship in what has become boxing’s hottest division.

Zab is looking forward to fighting so close to where he was born. The speedy, southpaw, summed it up by saying, “I like to finish how I started so we teamed up with Main Events, we crossed the water to team up with Prudential Center and I'm back!!!”

“We at Main Events are thrilled to welcome Zab back home," said Kathy Duva, Main Events' CEO. "We were fortunate to have been involved with Zab throughout much of his early boxing career, so we know first hand what a compelling personality and exciting fighter Zab is. Zab brings with him the kind of fan base necessary to fill a big arena and we look forward to packing Prudential Center when he makes his debut there in July."

Bill Halkias, VP Super Judah Promotions, added, “Super Judah Promotions is very excited to team up with such a respected and experienced promoter in Main Events and a fantastic facility and crew at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.  Zab ‘Super’ Judah is entering 2010 with more focus, heart and dedication than ever before. He will once again dominate the junior welterweight division.”

The opponent and on sale info for Zab’s upcoming fight will be announced shortly.
