Zab Judah Return Card in Las Vegas is Cancelled

By Steve Kim

The return of former two-division world champion Zab Judah under the Greg Cohen Promotions banner is off to a rocky start. What was supposed to be his debut with GCP in early September was cancelled after a weigh-in scuffle left his opponent Hevinson Herrera unable to fight.

A new date was set and Judah was scheduled to return this Friday night at the D Hotel Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas against another former world champion, Juan Carlos Salgado, on a card that was going to be nationally televised on CBS Sports Network.

But, Salgado pulled out citing an injury. Then the Nevada State Athletic Commission and the promotion couldn't come to an agreement on a suitable replacement.

According to multiple sources, this card which was scheduled to feature the likes of Ava Knight, Joseph Agbeko and Jesus Gutierrez - has been cancelled.

Looks like Nevada is for real with this "suitable opponent" stuff. I could understand Ward having trouble finding a world class opponent 3(?) weeks before a fight, but it seems like it'd be not so hard to find a journeyman…
