Judah: Alexander Best Have His 'A' Defense For Matthysse!

By Ryan Burton
IBF junior welterweight champion Zab Judah has been on a roll lately.  He has won his past five fights since dropping a technical decision to Joshua Clottey in August of 2008.
This past November Judah survived a knockdown to win a split decision over Lucas Matthysse of Argentina.  Matthysse is scheduled to face former WBC/IBF junior welterweight champion Devon Alexander in June.  Judah told BoxingScene that Matthysse is one of the biggest punchers he has ever faced and advised Alexander that he better be prepared when he steps in the ring versus the hard hitting Argentine.
"One thing about Matthysse is he is probably one of the hardest punchers I have ever fought.  Devon is a good boxer and that should be a good fight too.  Devon better bring his 'A' game on his defense and he might pull it off," said Judah.
