One of the premier boxers of this era, Zab “Super” Judah has won five world titles in two weight divisions, but he still has plenty of goals left, including winning another championship and continuing to give fans more exciting fights. So it is with great pleasure that Golden Boy Promotions is announcing a joint venture with Super Judah Promotions to co-promote Judah and make sure the world continues to see this boxing superstar on the sport’s biggest stages.
“Super Judah Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions working together is phenomenal,” said Judah.
“I have been doing business with Golden Boy Promotions for a number of years, working both with them and against them and I know what it’s like to be on both sides. Through those times, I see that we are a perfect fit. This joint venture will give me the experience I need as a promoter and get me the big fights I want at this point of my career.”
“I am very happy to welcome Zab to the Golden Boy team,” said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions.
He is without question not only one of the most exciting fighters in boxing, but he also has tremendous name recognition with reaches into the general market. In his thrilling fight against Danny Garcia, Zab showed that he belongs in the absolute top level of the sport. I am looking forward to be working with Zab and his team and have him participate in the biggest fights in the junior welterweight and welterweight divisions.”
Offered Bill Halkias, Vice President of Super Judah Promotions, “Zab Judah and Super Judah Promotions are looking forward to working with boxing’s premier promoter in Golden Boy Promotions. We understand the importance of partnering with the best promoter in the business. It’s the difference between having Zab in good fights and having Zab in great fights. Zab only wants to fight the best and Golden Boy Promotions stable of fighters is the best in boxing. ”
Zab Judah’s next bout will be announced shortly.
Judah signing with Golden Boy makes sense for both sides. Golden Boy promotes much of the top 10 of the junior welterweight division, and Judah has a history in the ring with many of those fighters already. He holds a previous win over Lucas Matthysse, a close and somewhat controversial decision, recently challenged Danny Garcia, and previously fought Amir Khan.
So he’ll have plenty of options in his new stable, including potentially a fight against Lamont Peterson, which had been rumored before. Each man needs a big win to get back into the thick of things immediately.
