By Dan Ambrose: Zab Judah (42-7, 29 KO’s) turns a ripe 35-years-old today, and is heading for a nice payday fight against WBA/WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia (25-0, 16 KO’s) in January on the 19th. Judah doesn’t have a lot left in the tank, which is probably why he’s being selected by Garcia’s promoters to fight him.
Judah has a recognizable name among casual fans, and is one of the few fighters at 140 that the part time fans have ever heard. For this reason you can expect Judah to keep getting fights like the Garcia one until he wears out his welcome by getting too many times. Right now, Judah has been able to keep that from happening by beating most of the average fighters at 140 he’s faced in the last three years.
