Zab “Super” Judah will fight Paulie “The Magic Man” Malignaggi in New York in a welterweight boxing match on December 7. I think this a great boxing match for both fighters. They both lost their last fight and their nearing the end of their career. So this is a must win for both boxers to get another shot at a more popular boxer and a big pay day. Now the question is who’s the better fighter, who will win?
Paulie Malignaggi Advantage
Malignaggi has fast hand speed and is naturally quick on his feet. Against Judah he will be the quicker fighter. In his lost against Adrien Broner he threw more punches than Broner and kept Broner moving his legs throughout the fight.
Paulie Malignaggi Weakness
Malignaggi has little punching power with only 7 KOs in 35 wins. This means he will definitely need to outpoint Zab by landing my clean punches because he will not knock him out.
Zab Judah Advantage
The obvious advantage Zab will have in this fight is punching power. He is a southpaw with a powerful left hand that hurt Danny Garcia in the later rounds of their fight. He probably won’t be able to knockout Malignaggi who has never been knocked out, but he can win rounds by landing my power shots.
Zab Judah Weakness
Zab Judah tends to lose focus which makes him look discouraged during his fights. He may have been able to beat Danny Garcia if he got off to a faster start.
I’m picking Zab Judah to will this fight. I think his advantages in punching power will overcome his disadvantages in staying focus during the fight. Malignaggi is faster, but not by a wide margin. Zab also has some quickness of his own. It should be a great fight and scene in New York.
