Zab Judah Returns, Decisions Noel Rincon in Canada

Grey Eagle Resort and Casino in Calgary, Alberta, Canada - Former two-division world champion Zab Judah (44-9, 30 KOs) snapped a one year layoff with a ten round unanimous decision over Noel Mejia Rincon (21-14-1, 12 KOs) of Mexico.

All three of the official judges had it 99-91 in favor of Judah, who simply outboxed the overmatched boxer with few issues.

Judah made a very eye catching entrance with a light show, and brought out most of the titles that he captured during his long career.

The contest started slow as Judag was feeling his opponent out.

Judah began to let his hands go in the second round with quick combinations that forced Rincon to hold. The Mexican boxer was having trouble dealing with Judah's speed. A low blow in the fourth round sent Judah to a knee. Judah would resume the fight with jabs and accurate punches through the defense of Rincon.

Judah appeared to hurt him with a series of body shots at the end of the sixth round, and he was in full control by the seventh and many had expected a knockout ending at some point, but Rincon was able to last the distance.

The 40-year old boxer was returning to the ring for the first time since picking up a quick victory last January in Trenton, New Jersey.

This was also 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.

Rincon, who fights quite often in Canada, was 2-3 in his last five fights coming in.

Prior to the contest, Judah made it clear that he wasn't taking his opponent lightly - despite the contest being a mismatch on paper.

“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.”
