Zab Judah's Promoter Sees Salgado as Good Return Bout

By Steve Kim

Former two-division champion Zab Judah, who will be fighting on November 13th at the D Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, will have a dance partner who recently promised the Mexican press that he's coming to wage war.

Promoter Greg Cohen just recently signed Judah to a promotional contract and told that he expects a good fight when his fighter steps in the ring with Juan Carlos Salgado.

"Zab is facing Juan Carlos Salgado, former world champion who knocked out Jorge Linares in the first round to win his world title. It's a nice fight for Zab and it's at 140."

Salgado (26-5-1, 16KOs) did briefly hold the WBC 130-pound belt after stopping Linares in 2009 but then lost that title in his first defense against Takashi Uchiyama a few months later. Currently, the 30-year old from Mexico is on a four fight losing streak.

Judah was scheduled to face Hevinson Herrera in September but a scuffle at the weigh-in left Herrera unable - or unwilling - to fight.

For this upcoming fight, Cohen says - "I hope the weigh-in is incident free."

This card which will be televised nationally by CBS Sports Network will also have Joseph Agbeko, Ava Knight and Jesus Gutierrez on it.

A true definition of the phrase: a cat (no pun intended) with nine lives.

Well... At least a smart move for Zab to go back down to 140. Unfortunately, the move is about 9 - 10 years too late

Zab should have called it a career once he lost to cotton fist malignaggi.
