Five-time, two-division world champion Zab Judah and two-time, two division world champion Paulie Malignaggi officially announced their fight for Brooklyn bragging rights on December 7 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY live on SHOWTIME.
Zab Judah: My main edge over Paulie will be hand speed and power. Paulie has quick hands too. He throws a lot of punches, but he has nothing to hold me off. It’s been proven in the past that you have to know how to hold me back. He can punch; we’re going to see.
Paul Malignaggi: Zab’s a crafty guy, a veteran, very versatile and still has those fast hands and southpaw stance. He’s been around for a long time because of his ability and craftiness and his ring intelligence. So there’s some stuff to deal with. But that’s why you go to training camp, devise a game plan and then you put it all on the line, you put it all together.
