Zab Judah is one of professional Boxing’s most controversial fighters. He is regarded as one of the WBA’s brashest characters, yet his colorful personality has won him a dedicated fan base. Judah, coming out of Brooklyn, has been fighting since he was a teen-ager. Trained by his father, a former kick boxing world champion, Zab entered the professional boxing world at the age of 18 where he knocked out his first opponent in the second round. Judah has developed into a very skillful fighter. With his southpaw stance, Judah is quick on feet and capable of packing a very powerful punch. In the ring, he’s a relaxed fighter, allowing his punches to flow more freely. He’s been known to show off in the ring, where he loses concentration and sometimes his composure if he’s losing a fight.

Zab Judah will battle Miguel Cotto for the Welterweight title this coming Saturday night on June 9 in New York City at Madison Square Garden. Cotto has a record of 29-0. Standing shorter than most welterweights at 5’7” with an arm reach of 67 inches (5 shy of the average for his fighting class), Miguel Cotto has still managed to knockout 24 of his opponents. He’s quick and able to avoid attacks and delivers incredible body punches. Judah is looking forward to the contest at Madision Square Garden with confidence saying of his opponent, "Cotto is a one-dimensional fighter. He is a robotic fighter, and when you match a great, great fighter against a robot there's going to be a malfunction."
