Zab Judah Now Working as Nurses Assistant, Helping Patients

By TMZ Sports

Former world champion Zab Judah beat people up for a living ... but now he's got another job, assisting elderly patients with dementia, and helping teach a nursing class.

Judah -- a four time world champ -- is working at an adult day care facility during the day, and helping teach a nurses assistant class by night ... all the while still training as a pro fighter.

Teberah Alexander -- the director at Excelling Nursing Academy who also runs the day care facility -- tells TMZ Sports that Judah recently graduated the nurses assistant class (he's now CPR certified, and First-Aid trained) ... and now actually helps teach a class of students studying to get certified.

Alexander says Zab primarily works with people with dementia and Alzheimer's ... and has developed a bond with the elderly patients.

She says Zab does everything from catheters to taking vitals.

it's no secret that Zab has had his fair share of trouble in the past ... but we're told that Judah has changed his life, and has been a favorite of patients, staff and students at the nursing facility.

Judah (43-9, 30 KOs), 40 years old, has been out of the ring since January, when he made his comeback to score a two round KO win. It was Judah's first bout since losing to Paulie Malignaggi in December 2013. There is no word if Judah intends to resume his boxing career.

Good on him for going into a new profession like this, helping others. Takes a special kind of person to interact well with Alzheimers patients. And that they like him speaks volumes.

Roy Jones Jr. should learn from this and stop fighting.

Believe me, Judah is far from broke. That is a big front from a modest man. He is very wealthy, and probably has 50 or 60 million salted away in off shore accounts and diversified in a wide portfolio of…
