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.
