On Sep. 10, two-division world champion Zab Judah is set to return to the ring against Columbia’s Hevinson Herrera, who he faces in Westbury, New York.
Judah (42-9, 29 KO’s), a Brooklyn native, has been living in Las Vegas for several years now and once again he has regained his focus towards training.
City Athletic Boxing in Las Vegas played host to Judah’s training camp ahead of the Herrera matchup, as he frequented the state-of-the-art facility late at nights typically.
Hustle Boss was with Judah on Friday night, as he put in some of the finishing touches on what was a very spirited training camp.
