Zab Judah, Englebrecht in Hot Water Over Falsifying Documents

By Edward Chaykovsky

Earlier today, BoxingScene.com reported that the Nevada Athletic Commission pulled the plug on Saturday’s card at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center.

The card, which was going to be televised by CBS Sports Network, would have featured the return of former two division world champion Zab Judah, who would have faced Josh Torres at a catch-weight of 143-pounds.

The NSAC took action after they discovered that Judah and promoter event Roy Englebrecht provided false information on Judah’s licensing application.

According to the Executive Director of the NSAC, Bob Bennett, Judah and Englebrecht claimed that there were no current financial liens against the boxer - but Bennett learned that Judah owes child support.

“Per NRS 467.117, we temporarily suspended Mr. Judah and Mr. Englebrecht late Thursday after it was confirmed they had provided a false licensing document,” Bennett said to the Las Vegas Review Journal.

“I met with (NSAC) chairman (Anthony) Marnell and we’re not going to compromise our integrity or the integrity of the sport for people who provide false information.”

Judah and Engelbrecht will have to appear before members of the NSAC at a disciplinary hearing on March 23.

Bennett is not pleased with the actions of Judah and Engelbrecht.

“The other fighters don’t get to fight; the fans who bought tickets don’t get to see the fights, Mr. Stevens put a lot of time and effort to have his facility ready as did our office to handle all the paperwork,” Bennett said. “We all lost out.”

Is a promoter supposed to know about a boxers child support situation? That seems like an impossible thing to track. I gotta believe Englebrecht gots something else going on here than that or did I miss something in that story???…

This was Jim Ross's debut also. So are the fans getting their money back? I don't know, honestly, the NSAC looks worse than Judah right now. Great timing, why waste everyone's time and do this last minute? That's messed up…
