Mayweather was interested in promoting DeMarcus Corley vs Zab Judah rematch

corley76By Brendan Taylor: DeMarcus “Chop Chop” Corley (44-27-1, 26 KO’s) has had a career which has seen him fight in 15 countries across the globe. The height of that career took place in the early part of the 2000’s as he picked up the WBO super lightweight title and would later pick up a quality victory over the hard punching Randall Bailey. Following his win against Bailey he took on Zab Judah and lost a competitive split decision to Judah back in 2003.

Both fighters have reached the point of “Father time” in their career and only Corley has remained active through the years. Judah’s last fight was a unanimous decision loss from Paulie Malignaggi back in 2013. Despite the long layoff, Judah has tried returning to the ring on numerous occasions only to have his fights cancelled. So with all that being taken into account, understand that Judah needs to shake off some ring rust.

Yesterday in an interview I did with DeMarcus Corley he expressed to me his desire to not just continue his fighting career, but to also make a rematch with Zab Judah happen. Through out the course of our conversation he details a sparring session that took place last year in Las Vegas between himself and Zab.”I put it on Zab for 2 rounds, all he gave me was 2 rounds” said Corley.

Aydin stops Corley

aydin654By Jim Dower: 30-year-old former WBC Silver welterweight champion Selcuk Aydin (26-2, 19 KO’s) battered and stopped 39-year-old journeyman DeMarcus Corley (39-21-1, 23 KO’s) in the 4th round on Friday night to capture the vacant WBC Mediterranean light welterweight title at the Atatürk Spor Salonu, Tekirdag, Turkey.

After the 4th round, Corley quit on his stool rather than come out for the 5th round.

It had been 11 months since Corley last fought, and he didn’t show the stamina and conditioning that he had in the past. Corley stood directly in front of Aydin in all four rounds, and was getting hit with some big shots.

The veteran looked dangerous throughout and McCloskey was badly wobbled towards the end of the 10th round by a crisp right hand which prompted referee Ian John Lewis to jump between fighters.

Corley stops McCloskey in 10th round!

Image: Corley stops McCloskey in 10th round!By Scott Gilfoid: As I predicted earlier in the day, the power punching southpaw DeMarcus Corley (39-19-1, 23 KO’s) was simply too much for Ireland’s Paul McCloskey (23-2, 12 KO’s), busting up his nose early and knocking him out in the 10th round on Saturday night at the Kings Hall, Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom. I hate to gloat, but I told you what was going to happen, didn’t I?
