World-ranked junior welterweight contender and knockout artist Lucas Matthysse (27-0, 25 KOs) of Argentina began preparations this week, along side fellow countryman and current WBC middleweight champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez, at the World Crown Sports Training Center in Oxnard, CA for his next bout as he is set to return on Saturday November 6th and take on former undisputed welterweight champion and 2-time junior welterweight champion Zab “Super” Judah (39-6, 27 KOs) of Brooklyn, NY at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, which will be shown live on HBO’s ‘Boxing After Dark’.

In his last outing the undefeated Matthysse made quick work of Rogelio Castaneda, Jr. winning via first round knockout back in August of this year and prior to that defeated former world champion “Vicious” Vivian Harris via fourth round TKO in February.

Also being featured on HBO’s doubleheader is 3-time world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (27-1-1, 18 KOs) of Gilroy, CA taking on 2004 U.S. Olympian and top lightweight contender Vicente Escobedo (22-2, 14 KOs) in a 10-round lightweight bout.

Judah vs. Matthysse is scheduled for 10-rounds for the NABO junior welterweight title and is being presented by Golden Boy Promotions, Main Events and Super Judah Promotions. Tickets priced at $53, $78, $103 and $253 (ringside) and can be purchased at Prudential Center Box Office, at or by calling Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000.
