On November 6th at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., Zab "Super" Judah (39-6, 27 KO's) will battle Lucas Matthysse (27-0, 25 KO's). The fight will be televised on HBO's "Boxing After Dark" series.
Previously, Judah was scheduled to face Michael Clark on October 2nd.
Judah stated, "Matthysse is a good young fighter with good speed and power. I look forward to making this an exciting fight for all my fans. GOD SPEED - Here we go!"
"We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing HBO to Prudential Center for the first time," said Kathy Duva, Main Events CEO. "When the opportunity arose, everyone involved worked very hard to reschedule Zab's next appearance in Newark to November 6th to coincide with HBO's schedule. Judah-Matthysse will be a spectacular event, and as always, the Prudential Center fans will be treated to another great night of boxing."
Bill Halkias, Super Judah Promotions Vice President, added, "Matthysse will make for an exciting fight. He is a young fighter that possesses decent hand speed and plenty of power. He has never faced an opponent like Zab, who has the fastest hands in boxing, crushing power and a level of experience that only comes from fighting the cream of the crop. This is the type of match-up boxing needs. We have great fans and only want to give them the best possible fights we can offer."
Tickets for Judah-Matthysse will go on sale later this month.
