Zab Judah makes his return to the ring tonight after a one-year layoff on ESPN2's Friday Night Fights, taking on 34-year old Hammond, IN, native Ruben Galvan. Judah hasn't fought since losing handily to Floyd Mayweather, Jr., a few months after being upset by Carlos Baldomir. Galvan's career features losses to former featherweight champion Jorge Paez and ex-sorta contender Marty Jakubowski. Should be nothing more than a simple tune-up for Cotto in June, but Baldomir was supposed to be nothing more than a mandatory and tune-up for Mayweather.
(34-4, 25 KO, Brooklyn, NY)
