Zab Judah Stops Jose Armando Santa Cruz in Three

By Mark Vester

At the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, junior welterweight Zab Judah (39-6, 27KOs) rocked Jose Armando Santa Cruz (28-5) in three rounds. After two rounds of boxing, Judah caught Cruz with a counter-left uppercut that sent the Mexican fighter down. He got up on unsteady legs, Judah finished him off with a barrage of punches against the ropes to get the stoppage.

Welterweight prospect Alex Perez (12-0, 7KOs) won a hard-fought eight round unanimous decision over Edvan Dos Santos Barros (10-10-1, 7KOs). Barros had his moments but Perez used his much taller frame and inside fighting skills to win most of the rounds. The scores were 77-75, 78-74 and 80-72.

Olympian and unbeaten welterweight prospect Sadam Ali (8-0, 4KOs) stopped Julias Edmonds (7-8) in three rounds. Ali dropped him once in the first, once in the second and finished him off in the third.

Have to see Zab in their with someone with mental toughness before people start jumping to conclusions. To me Judah was always good but the lack of focus was his biggest problem.
