Zab Judah is still looking to get back in the ring, and his fourth attempt at a comeback fight is set -- for now.

Zab Judah is still trying to make a comeback fight, and has yet another date set, as he's penciled in to return on March 12 against Jose Torres in Las Vegas, after a weird period where he was promoted by Greg Cohen but never actually got into a ring before the relationship fell apart.

Judah, 38, hasn't fought since December 2013, when he lost to Paulie Malignaggi. To be quite frank, Judah (42-9, 29 KO) looked pretty finished in that fight, not so much like he can't physically still do it but like he just didn't have the hunger at all anymore. He was downright lethargic on that night, not looking at all like the fighter we'd seen just seven months prior in a quite spirited loss to Danny Garcia.

Judah signed with Greg Cohen Promotions last year and had a return set for September, but that fell through, and the same thing happened with a November date against Juan Carlos Salgado. He was recently set to return on a card this Friday, but had a falling out with Cohen and pulled out of that card.

For his fight against Torres (15-4-2, 7 KO), he's working with Roy Engelbrecht Events, who is looking to establish a monthly boxing series at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center.

The card, which will air on CBS Sports Network, will also feature lightweight prospect Jesus Gutierrez (14-0-1, 4 KO) taking on Leon Spinks III (11-3-1, 7 KO), the grandson of Leon Spinks, great nephew of Michael Spinks, and nephew of Cory Spinks.
