Judah-Herrera KO'd Following Pre-Fight Weigh-In Brawl

By Steve Kim

Zab Judah's return to the ring was scheduled for Thursday night at the Space in Westbury in Westbury New York against journeyman, Hevinson Herrera. After an altercation at the weigh-in earlier today, however, he won't be facing Herrera or possibly anyone at all.

Promoter Greg Cohen explained to Boxingscene.com: "(Zab) and his opponent got into a scuffle at the weigh-in and the opponent is saying his jaws hurting, his heads hurting. He's not fighting. It's insanity."

Herrera has ruled himself out of the fight.

"The kid is not fighting," confirmed an irate Cohen, who is now presented with the task of finding a new dance partner for Judah literally at a moment's notice. 

Judah has not fought since December '13, when he was outpointed by Paulie Malignaggi in a matchup of Brooklyn-bred former two-division champs at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

"The fight's off and I have about an hour to try to get a replacement," said Cohen, who is working feverishly to find someone to take Herrera's place.

"What are the odds of me finding somebody who's medically cleared, on weight, in an hour to get over here to the weigh-in?"

The rest of the show will still go on as planned. Leading the rest of the bill, Miami's Steve Geffrard squares off with veteran Cory Cummings in a scheduled 10-round light heavyweight clash.

Among the card's leading local attractions: 
  • Amanda Serrano—a Boricua southpaw from Brooklyn—meets Fatuma Zarika in a rematch to their first meet in May, in which Serrano won a six-round decision;
  • Long Island's own Tommy Rainone faces Francisco Reza, in a welterweight bout also scheduled for six rounds

Zab is borderline retarded. He should always be reigned in or this can happen. Now the stuttering idiot has done it! This is the same idiot who stoped roadside, like you or I might see fresh peaches for a good…
