Roundup (June 11, 2019): Zab Judah update, GGG, more
Zab Judah is headed home, GGG doesn’t care about Oscar’s tweets, and more.
Miss anything on Monday? The roundup will catch you up.
Good news for Zab Judah, who was released from the hospital in New York and is headed home. The 41-year-old Judah was admitted after Friday’s fight with Cletus Seldin, and a brain bleed was discovered.
Gennadiy Golovkin doesn’t much care about Oscar De La Hoya’s tweets, which is probably the right attitude to have. Oscar and Canelo still have power, obviously, but not the power they had in previous Golovkin negotiations. DAZN is everyone’s ruler now. DAZN foots the bill. Or at least it would seem that way from the outside.
- Reminder: new rankings up tomorrow at Noon ET.
- Michael Woods wonders if DAZN may have made a mistake in signing Demetrius Andrade, not because Andrade isn’t good, but exactly because he is really good.
- Josh Warrington returns Saturday in a title defense against Kid Galahad, and says that fame hasn’t gone to his head at all. “I still pick up the dog poo.”
- Tyson Fury, who also returns Saturday, compares himself to a dildo.
- Katie Taylor says she’s open to a rematch with Delfine Persoon, which personally I hope is her next fight. Persoon deserves it.
- Murat Gassiev’s move to heavyweight for July 27 is official and he has an opponent in Joey Dawejko, a fighter tougher and better than his record, kind of a heavyweight Gabriel Rosado, for a contemporary comparison.
- Denis Lebedev and Arsen Goulamirian, who both have WBA cruiserweight titles through kind of absurd means, are headed to a June 20 purse bid.
- Ryan Karl and Leduan Barthelemy are set to return on the June 23 Charlo-Cota card.
- Jack Massey sees some weaknesses in Lawrence Okolie, and feels he can exploit them when they meet on July 6.
- Liam Conroy, who lost to Joshua Buatsi in March, hopes to use his June 21 return to get back to British title level.
