Ipinagyabang ni WBC at WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. na bugbog-sarado sa kanya sa tatlong five-rounds sparring ang muntik nang tumalo sa kanya noong 2006 na si dating world IBF welterweight champion Zab Judah.

Ngunit iba ang ipinahiwatig ni Judah, ang pagiging ismarte na lamang umano ang magiging kalamangan ng kanyang kababayan kay WBO titlist Manny Pacquiao kapag nagharap ang mga ito sa Mayo 2 sa Las Vegas, Nevada.

“I think that he’s probably not the same fighter he is when he fought me but he’s smart. He’s a very smart fighter you know what I’m saying?,” sinabi ni Judah sa Thaboxingvoice.com. “You watch his business, the way he handles his business, the way he handles his fights; he’s very, very smart that’s one thing you can’t never take away from him. He knows what he’s doing.”

Iniulat naman ni David Mayo ng mlive.com na pinaglaruan lang ni Mayweather si Judah sa sparring sessions kamakailan sa Mayweather Boxing Club sa Las Vegas.

“Just beat the (bleep) out of him,” ayon sa trainer ng pound-for-pound boxer at tiyuhing si Jeff Mayweather. “He beat Judah so bad, Judah was scared to let his hands go.”

“Everybody was just hyped because they thought Judah was going to be something different, but Judah was worse than the other guys,” giit ng nakatatandang Maywetaher. “It seemed like Floyd had something personal against him. He beat the (bleep) out of him. So then he quit, he let Judah off the hook, because Judah’s got a fight coming up and he messed his eye up.”

“In the second round, Judah didn’t have nothing left. He’s in shape. He’s got a fight coming up. But the thing is, Floyd, he’s on a different level right now,” dagdag ng trainer na dati ring world boxing champion. “It may be just his mind, and all the (B.S.) he’s been dealing with with Manny over the years. Obviously, he’s taken that in some kind of way, and I mean, he’s punishing these guys.”
