Las Vegas, NV (June 11th, 2019)– Referee Charlie Fitch got it right Friday night, June 7, 2019, in the welterweight main event at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York, when he stopped the bout in the eleventh round with Zab Judah taking a pummeling, declaring Cletus Seldin the winner of their vacant NABA Super Lightweight title.
After the bout, Judah felt faint and went to a local hospital with bleeding on his brain. He responded to treatment well enough to be released, but his boxing career is over. Judah won world titles at super lightweight, welterweight and super welterweight during his 23-year career which began in 1996. Judah’s career record is 44-10 with 30 knockouts.
Judah’s fall from grace can be seen in his inactivity, Zab having fought only three bouts in the past six years, and entering the ring against Seldin after 17 months of inactivity. Say a prayer for my friend Zab Judah, who gave the boxing game a great deal of attention and publicity during his career, and helped revitalize the sport in the lower weight classes.
