ResultJudah wins by split decision

Zab Judah vs. Lucas Matthysse was a fight on November 6, 2010[1] as the main event of an HBO card.[2] The IBF has said that the winner of this bout could fight number one challenger Kaizer Mabuza, if current champion Devon Alexander is stripped of his Light Welterweight title.[3]

Build up[edit]

Zab Judah has not fought on HBO in more than two years. Judah, whose last HBO fight was a ninth-round technical decision loss to Joshua Clottey for a vacant welterweight belt in August 2008, returned to 140 pounds in July and stopped Jose Armando Santa Cruz in the third round at the Prudential Center on ESPN2.

In February, Matthysse scored his most notable win, a controversial fourth-round stoppage of former junior welterweight Vivian Harris.

Schaefer said former featherweight and junior lightweight titlist Robert Guerrero is slated for the televised co-feature. Schaefer said he could challenge Vicente Escobedo.[4]
