Zab Judah Returns, Blasts Out Munguia in Two Rounds

By Carlos Boogs

Sun National Bank Center Arena in Trenton, New Jersey - Former two division world champion Zab Judah (43-9, 30 KOs), 39-years-old, finally returned to the ring and took out overmatched Jorge Luis Munguia (12-8, 4 KOs) in the second round of their welterweight fight.

This was Judah's first fight since December of 2013, when he lost a twelve round unanimous decision to Paulie Maliganggi at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

It was also Judah's first victory since 2013. Prior to the Malignaggi loss, Judah had dropped a twelve round decision in April of the same year to current WBC welterweight champion Danny Garcia. While there were competitive moments against Garcia, Judah appeared to have an empty tank when he faced Malignaggi.

Judah was previously scheduled to fight in Las Vegas last year. An issue broke out with the Las Vegas Athletic Commission, who claimed the promoter of the event had submitted false information on documents. The information in question was pertaining to Judah's child support debt.  As a result the entire event was canceled.

Judah is motivated to work his way back to a major fight or a world title opportunity. At the moment the welterweight division is wide open and Judah is still a former world champion with a very recognizable name.

In the co-feature of the card, super middleweight contender Derrick Webster (21-1, 11 KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over Thomas Awimbono (25-6-1, 21 KOs). The scores were 100-90, 98-92, 98-92.

Webster now wins his third fight in a row since suffering a decision loss to Arif Magomedov in July of 2015. Last year he picked up wins over Lenwood Dozier in June and then a Zoltan Sera in November.

[QUOTE=Francis M.;17371750]fighters prepare months in advance for fights so 25k is not just for one night in real terms. I do hope he got paid more.[/QUOTE] Yeah this is an important point. Some fighters (i.e., Floyd Cryweather) say they make…
