Former undisputed welterweight champion “Super” Zab Judah was awarded a narrow split decision victory over Lucas Matthysse November 6th at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.Judah (40-6-0-2, 27 KOs), who won his fourth consecutive bout since he lost to Joshua Clottey by a technical decision in August 2008, controlled the majority of the action against Matthysse (27-1-0-1, 25 KOs).However, Matthyse rallied late and managed to knock a bloodied Judah to the canvas midway through the 10th round.Judah ultimately held on before Matthyse could land a knockout blow.“He was a strong fighter,” said Judah, 33, a southpaw who was born and raised in Brooklyn. “I kept my jab and that’s what worked for me in the end. I’m not ever going down, ever.”The crowd booed lustily when the decision was announced.“Zab never hurt me, I fought my fight and pressured him the whole time, and I closed the championship rounds. What more do they want?” said Matthysse, 28, a native of Argentina. “I clearly won. This must be because we’re in his backyard.”Judah has a following in Brookline because he is a practicing Jew.“It was a close fight,” said Nick Greene, 27, of Brookline. “But, I definitely think Zab deserved the win.”Judah has expressed interest in battling the winner of the Devon Alexander versus Tim Bradley showdown in January.Unfortunately for Judah, he is no longer in the same class as either Alexander (21-0, 13 KOs) or Bradley (26-0-0-1, 11 KOs) and both welterweights would punish him with ease.At this stage, Judah is a slightly above average welterweight and he’s delusional to proclaim he’s “not ever going down, ever.”Zab Judah is far from a “super” pugilist.
