Zab Judah With New Deal, is Set To Return in September

Greg Cohen of Greg Cohen Promotions proudly announces the signing of  five-time world champion and former Undisputed World Welterweight Champion Zab "Super" Judah (42-9, 29 KOs) of Brooklyn, New York, to a co-promotional agreement, along with Judah's Super Judah Promotions.

Judah, 37, will compete in the super lightweight division with an eye toward returning to his elite status in boxing.

His first appearance under the new promotional banner will be in September, on a GCP televised card.

"I am overjoyed to be adding a superstar of Zab's caliber to my promotional roster," said Greg Cohen. "Zab has been in with every great fighter of this era and beaten many of them. He is a Brooklyn boxing legend and still a force to be reckoned with at 140 lbs."

"Super Judah Promotions is looking forward to working with such a reputable and time-tested promoter in Greg Cohen and the Greg Cohen Promotions team, said Bill Halkias V.P. of Super Judah Promotions. "Zab is physically and mentally stronger than I have ever seen him. He wants to win a sixth world title for his fans. They won't be disappointed."

The southpaw Judah won the undisputed welterweight championship in February 2005 with a ninth-round stoppage of Cory Spinks. Judah won his first championship, the IBF Light Welterweight Championship in January 1999 with a fourth-round knockout over Wilfredo Negron.

"We will feature Zab on our Championship Boxing series and keep him active," continued Cohen. "He still has the speed and reflexes of a top fighter and after a few comeback appearances, he will be ready for another assault on the current kings of the division."

Judah's opponent in September will be announced soon.

If Zab and Mosley are both back in the game trying to make sideshow attraction old man fights, then they might as well get in there together. Always wanted to see that one, even if it's meaningless now. No PPV…

Not really sure what Zab still has to offer in the ring, but looks like his first fight with Cohen will be on CBS Sports, which means it'll have a small budget, with most of it going to Judah, so…
