Barclays Center will host two of the borough’s favorite sons, former Five-Time, Two-Division World Champion Zab “Super” Judah and former Two-Time, Two-Division World Champion Paulie “The Magic Man” Malignaggi, on Saturday, Dec. 7 to decide who is the true King of Brooklyn.
“I am happy to be back fighting in front of my hometown crowd,” said Judah, who is from Brownsville. “Paulie and I have known each other for a long time and we have a mutual respect for each other, but with this fight on Dec. 7 it is going to be like the ancient Roman days. There has to be a leader and that position belongs to me.”
“I have always admired Zab’s skills and his resume speaks for itself,” said Malignaggi, a native of Bensonhurst, “But this is the ‘Battle of Brooklyn’ and winning this fight is worth more than any world title.”
In the 12-round co-main event, the WBA Super Welterweight Championship is on the line as interim titleholder Erislandy Lara battles former champion Austin “No Doubt” Trout. The Cuban star, Lara, is coming off a ‘Fight of the Year’ candidate in his 10th -round title-winning stoppage of Alfredo Angulo in June, but the gifted Trout is hungrier than ever to regain his world title. Additionally, 2012 U.S. Olympian Marcus Browne, who will be featured at Barclays Center for the fifth time in his professional career, will face an opponent to be determined.
