Super lightweight knockout artist Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin (24-1, 20 KOs) stopped six-time world champion Zab “Super” Judah (44-10, 33 KOs) in the eleventh round on Friday night to claim the vacant NABA title in the Event Center at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York.
From the opening bell, Seldin concentrated on the body and was doing so effectively. In the third round at the 10-second clap Seldin landed an overhand right that had Judah wobbled but the bell negated any follow-up. The next round Seldin again went to the body and spent the majority of the round in close. The fifth round was all Seldin as he put his head into Judah’s chest and ripped at the body.
The middle rounds slowed as Seldin’s punches were landing but not with the same steam. Judah’s was relegated to occasional combinations. The eleventh round started with Judah obviously slowed from the body attack and Seldin starting to regain steam. After the “Hebrew Hammer” lost his mouthpiece, he went on the attack and hurt Judah with combinations to the head. Seldin jumped at the chance and battered Zab against the ropes until referee Charlie Fitch had no choice but to stop the fight. Time was 1:40.
And just saw this, so he isn't as bad off as first reported, though a brain bleed is always bad....
Glad he's doing fine.
Probably should call it quits after that. I actually had no idea he was still fighting.
dont let @Toelocku find out the hebrew hammer did this
Yeah, was surprised he’s still fighting
Am I correct in my memory bank that there was a vid of him on the street gambling back in the day where he and his “boys” got in argument with some street people?
Why doe, he said he luvs da juice
Never liked Zab but this is unfortunate news. Cannot believe he is still fighting...
Scary shit. Hope he retires.
Wow, Zab was big drama show back in the day.
Really hope he gets well, reinvents himself & a positive becomes of this.

Zab Judah released from hospital
Star Boxing has announced that today former world champion Zab “Super” Judah was released from the hospital after being admitted after Friday night’s fight at Turning Stone Resort Casino. While he will need rest, the prognosis looks promising.
Hope he fully recovers. He volunteers teaching a nursing assistance class and helps at an adult day care facility treating patients with dementia.
Was this related to this? Guess that guy had hands.
