Yoel Judah tries to con the media.
Judahs Con On Conference Call
By Boxing News May 23rd, 2007
Today’s “Zab” Judah media conference call was too good to be true.
It started on time. Media attendance was record-breaking. Oh, and the trainer, formerly known as Zab during the call, was, in reality, his father and trainer, YOEL Judah.
Shades of Clifford Irving!
Yes, the call was a plain old-fashioned hoax.
“Mea culpa,” said a still-stunned Lee Samuels, boss-publicist for promoter Top Rank. “I called Zab’s number 10 minutes ahead to make sure he would be ready and I assumed the person I was talking to was Zab. I’ve been doing conference calls for Top Rank since 1982 and I’ve NEVER been snookered like this before. I would have made a lousy contestant on the game show “To Tell The Truth.” But I do apologize to the media for this.”
Judah’s opponent, undefeated World Boxing Association welterweight champion Miguel Cotto, who hosts his own media conference call next Wednesday, May 30, at 3 P.M. ET / Noon PT was not surprised at all by Judah’s shenanigans.
“I’ve been saying all along that Judah was a fraud, this media conference call only confirmed it,” said Cotto from his training camp in Puerto Rico.
Now we know where Zab get's all of his loonie-nees from.
The acorn does not fall far from the tree.
