Zab Judah back with Main Events

Jab "Super" Judah is back with Main Events.

It's the second time Judah will be fighting under the promotion arm of Main Events.The former undisputed welterweight champ began his career with Main Events.

The Brooklyn native is expected to make his return to the ring sometime in July at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ against an opponent that has yet to be determined.

"We at Main Events are thrilled to welcome Zab back home," Main Events CEO Kathy Duva said in a statement. "We were fortunate to have been involved with Zab throughoug much of his early boxing career, so we know first hand what a compelling personality and exciting fighter Zab is...We look forward ot packing the Prudential Center when he makes his debut there in July."

Judah (38-6, 26 KOs) scored second round TKO over Ubaldo Hernandez last November.

"I like to finish how I started so we teamed up with Main Events," said Judah. "We crossed the water to team up with [the] Prudential Center and I'm back."

But things won't be the same. Judah, who's fought as a welterweight the last six years, plans to fight at 140 pounds.

He last fought at 140 pounds in December 2003, a first-round knockout of Jaime Rangel.
