Zab Judah Pumped To Headline Card in Canada on Saturday

Former two division world champion Zab Judah (43-9, 30 KOs), 40 years old, is returning to the ring for the first time since picking up a quick win last January in Trenton, New Jersey.

Judah is taking the show on the road, as he headlines an event taking place at the Grey Eagle Resort and Casino in Calgary, Canada.

This will be Judah's second fight since losing a twelve round decision to Paulie Malignaggi in December 2013. Judah had also lost a twelve round decision earlier that same year to Danny Garcia.

Judah will face Mexican veteran Noel Mejia Rincon (21-13-1, 12 KOs), who fights quite often in Canada and is 2-3 in his last five fights.

Despite being a mismatch on paper, Judah is not taking his opponent lightly.

The last time Judah took an opponent lightly, he was upset by Carlos Baldomir back in 2006 - which at the time was set as a stay busy fight to keep Judah for an April bout with Floyd Mayweather.

“I’m from a martial arts background, and we’re taught that a scared man is a very dangerous man, so at no time will I be looking at this guy as someone I can just walk over or walk through,” Judah said to the Calgary Herald.

“I’ll look at him as if I’m fighting Floyd Mayweather or as I’m fighting a Manny Pacquaio … you know what I mean? I’m going to take this guy the same way. In preparation and my training, this is how I prepared myself, as if I’m fighting a big fight. I don’t know what this guy’s been doing — he could’ve been in the mountains of Mexico, just preparing like ‘I’m going to kill Zab Judah,’ so I don’t know, I have to be on my A-game.”

Judah still has fond memories of the fight with Mayweather - and states that he's constantly asked questions about that fight to this day.

“It’s always great because we fought in ’06, so for that time, that situation, for my name (to still be remembered) and still be buzzing like that, that was great for me,” Judah said.

“That was a great feeling, to just know that something I went out and put my heart into, years later, it still stood as something that stood for something. That was great — I appreciated it.”

I didn't even know he was fighting in Calgary. It's only 3 hours away but I'm not going. We just got a ton of snow last night & the highways are bad. Never thought I would see Zab Judah fighting…
