Zab Judah: "I'll Need About 5 Rounds To Beat Cotto"

Zab Judah is running 8 miles a day, sparring 10 or more rounds daily, taking on spar partners who studied Miguel Cotto video tapes "for weeks" said promoter Brian Young today in Memphis.

"Zab is fully prepared," said Young, president of Prize Fight Boxing which promotes Judah. "Zab just sparred 10 hard rounds at our gym in Memphis. He went in against sparring partners who studied Cotto video tapes for weeks."

The sparring partners include high-energy Lamont Peterson, a 20-0 junior welterweight, and Anthony Peterson, a 22-0 lightweight.

"When we announced Zab was fighting Cotto I went right to the film library," Young said. "I got six good Cotto tapes, gave them to Lamont and Anthony, told them to look at videos over and over. Our ultimate goal is to get every Cotto move down and win this fight.

"The Peterson brothers previously worked with DeMarcus Corley before he fought Cotto and looked at what happened in that fight," Young said. "As far as Judah goes, it's pretty much understood that the fight against Cotto will not be going the distance. That's how confident Zab is."

"Cotto chose the wrong fighter," Judah said. "I'll need about five rounds. New York is my town, not his."

judah will be gassed by four, especially with the body attack. Judah is one very entertaining fighter and if delahoya/mayewatherwas entertaining, this fight will definently destroy it in bang for the buck. I see this as a definent toe to toe battle. Its a toss up still. I think if it last past 6, cotto will win,
Judah will come out to try to finish Cotto early cause like tysonjones said NO ONE can stand Cottos body punches for 12 rounds.

I wouldnt be surprised if this was a toe-to-toe war but i think Cotto has the superior power and skills and will take it.
Wow Zab called it like I see it. My original prediction was 8 rounds but I said maybe 5.
haha, great minds think alike :dunno: :cheeky4: lol. Think about it.

No problem at all man. I enjoy taking shots at everyone every now and then!!!:)
If “SUPER JUDAH” shows up, it’s a definite win. If ZAB shows up it’s a toss up.
Hell I think Zab can beat the most overrated guy in the sport.
we'll see how overrated he is come june 9th. Can we make another bet shane? if cotto wins, you stop saying he's overrated, whether it be sd, ud, or knockout. if it comes to draw somehow, you can keep talking.
Absolutely. If he wins he is not overrated. If he loses you must admit he is overrated. Deal?
You got a deal there shane.
:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

You get two thumbs up. ONe for each thousand you will be owing me.
funny guy you are. if you wanan keep pushing it we will, how about we add on to this as well, hmm how about an avatar bet on it, judah wins, ill put judah as my pic, if cotto wins, you do the same.
I am not quite that confident my friend! And I don't really have the same hatred PREFIGHT for Cotto as I did for Oscar so it wouldn't make me as nervous. I really didn't want a pic of Oscar as my avatar, but I wouldn't mind a Cotto one too bad. The only thing is it's gotta stay with the pretty boy. I can't be called PrettyBoyFloyd and have a Cotto picture.
