Zab Judah vs Kaizer Mabuza Boxing on 5 March
Zab Judah is going to have to pray he can get by Mabuza because this is a very dangerous fight for Judah at this point in his career. Mabuza is the type of opponent that gives Judah problems because of his high work rate. Judah’s best chance of beating Mabuza is to hope that he can survive to the final bell and hope that he can win another home town decision, like the one that Judah won in his last fight against Lucas Matthysse last year in November. This fight also took place at Judah’s home stadium in Newark, NJ. During the fight, Judah started off strong as usual, jabbing and landing power shots while using his speed to avoid Matthysse’s attacks.
Kaizer Mabuza is a South African fighter in the junior welterweight division that will be getting his first crack at superstardom if he can beat the well known veteran Zab Judah. Offering an all-action boxing style, Mabuza is currently riding an eight fight win streak that dates back to the beginning of 2008. During this eight fight journey, Mabuza has beaten a few modest fighters such as Jason Naule, Samuel Malinga, and Serhiy Fedchenko. Most notably though and what put him in this position, was his recent vistory over American contender and former champion Kendall Holt. Mabuza shocked Holt with his power and aggression, and ultimately ended up not answering the bell for the sixth round. Now, Mabuza has his sights set on another shocker if he can beat Judah on March 5th.
Zab Judah vs Kaizer Mabuza Boxing Fight
Mabuza is a busy fighter, and surely he knows that he must apply a lot of pressure to Judah to test whether or not he will wither in the later rounds. If Judah can stay focused and use his exceptional skills, putting his jab to use and counter punching Mabuza with hard, swift shots, I feel that Judah should win easily.
