Final details are nearly ironed out for the Zab Judah (39-6, 27 KO's) vs. Lucas Matthysse (27-0, 25 KO's) fight. The fight will take place at Newark's Prudential Center on November 6th and will be televised on HBO's "Boxing After Dark". More details will follow.
People who have already purchased tickets for the October 2nd Judah fight can return them to Prudential Center box office and either exchange them now for the same seat on November 6th, or receive a full refund as soon as tickets for the November 6th card go on sale later this month.
Kathy Duva, Main Events CEO, said, "We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing HBO to Prudential Center for the first time. When the opportunity arose, everyone involved worked very hard to reschedule Zab's next appearance in Newark to Nov. 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 VP, 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 matchup that boxing needs. We have great fans and only want to give them the best possible fights we can offer."
Zab Judah spoke of his match against Matthyesse, "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..."
