Zab Judah returns to action tonight!

against Edwin Vasquez on ESPN2.

Former Undisputed Welterweight Champion Zab "Super" Judah returns to action tonight against the unknown Edwin Vasquez. If Vasquez was laying down on the sidewalk in front of your house, and you stepped over him walking to your car, you probably wouldn't even know who he was.

But you know what they say about the unknown and unlikely tuneup: sometimes he or she can tune you up. However, I do not see that happening tonight against Judah, but who knows. As long as Judah is focused on the task at hand, and no black cats have crossed his path, he should be able to deal with Vasquez and move on to bigger things.

Judah is coming off an exciting but punishing 11th round TKO loss at the hands of current WBA Welterweight Champion Miguel Cotto. Hopefully Judah can stay busy from here on out and fight durable opponents to get some rounds in and keep himself sharp. Judah has made a name for himself, so he's the type of prizefighter who can fight a stay busy fight or two and then climb right back into a big fight. We saw that, after a year of inactivity due to his suspension, when Judah fought Cotto for the title after a short and sweet one round no-contest against Ruban Galvan.

Chances are, should Judah emerge victorious tonight, we could find him in a match against Antonio Margarito, Kermit Cintron, or possibly even Joshua Clottey later this year.
