Zab Judah Talks Career Status, Loss To Amir Khan

By Chris Robinson

On Friday afternoon, former champion Zab ‘Super’ Judah could be found inside of the confines of the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas, Nevada. Judah was in the building to check out his former foe Floyd Mayweather Jr. get down to work in preparation for his September 17th clash against Victor Ortiz at the nearby MGM Grand but also had a few thoughts he wanted to get off of his chest.

Judah was last seen inside of the Mandalay Bay on July 23rd as he suffered a TKO loss to WBA and IBF junior welterweight champion Amir Khan. In the fifth round Khan would catch Judah with a right hand that appeared to be on Judah’s beltline and the Brooklyn native went down on his knees before being counted out by referee Vic Drakulich.

As he interacted with the sparse crowed inside Mayweather’s gym, including his old buddy and Mayweather sparring partner Kassim Ouma, Judah seemed in good spirits after having a few weeks to reflect on how everything played out.

“I’ve been great,” Judah said, updating me on his life. “Just maintaining, chilling with the family, just enjoying my life.”

Looking back at how the fight unfolded, Zab feels slighted to not have seen the contest go on.

“I trained very hard for that fight and only five rounds were completed of a boxing match that was scheduled for twelve rounds. I still feel cheated and I still feel like I owe my trainer another seven or eight rounds,” said Judah.

Immediately after the loss, people began to take shots at Judah, claiming that the blow he suffered from Khan in the 5th wasn’t an illegal shot and that he was simply looking for a way out of the fight. Answering his critics, Judah took everything in stride while pointing to his track record as a fighter.

“Like I said, people can say what they want to say. That’s ok, I don’t worry about that. The only one who was in there who felt the pain was myself. Zab Judah’s heart and integrity of a person, I’ve withstood tougher things than that. For somebody to say that Zab would just quit in a fight? That’s unrealistic.”

No word yet on Judah's immediate plans but he made a point to say that his career is far from finished.
