Prediction,

Judah should have retired a while back in my opinion, I think he did retire after the Malignaggi loss, but he came back after 3 years out, had a fight, took another year out, fought again, and that was 16 months back, so he has been very inactive over the last 5 years. Judah is 41, he's very old, and he will probably not fight for a world title again. Judah's 2 comeback fights were 10 round fights, against opponents with winning records, but not good records (21-13, 12-7). Judah won both comeback fights easily, because he has come a long way down in level of opposition.

Seldin is not on Judah's level, Judah, before he retired in 2013, fought a lot of opponents who were a level above Seldin, but Seldin is 22-1, he can punch, although I don't think he hits as hard as his record suggests because he hasn't fought many durable opponents, but he can punch, he is tough, has a very aggressive mindset, likes a fight, and he is a level above Judah's two previous comeback opponents, so this is an interesting fight.

It is hard to rate Seldin at world level, because when he fought Yven Ulysse, he lost almost a shutout, got dropped 3 times, looked terrible, and I think a prime Judah was a level above Ulysse, I think Seldin is technically very poor. There is no comaprison between Judah now and Judah in his prime, Seldin probably isn't much worse than he was when he fought Ulysse, he has big age advantage, Seldin.

I think Seldin will win this, I would not surprised if Judah won, because there is a big difference in calibre, might be such a difference in overall ability that even at 41, coming off 16 months out, Judah still beats Seldin, but I don't think so, because I think Judah is a shot fighter, and Seldin doesn't have to be world level to beat him now.

I think this will be a good fight, very competitive, Judah will win rounds, might be ahead on the cards, but Seldin will stop in 6 or 7.

Unless the rumours are just speculation, which I doubt they are, Judah has suffered a bleed on the brain, is in hospital. There needs to be an age limit on boxing, 40 year olds shouldn't be going past 10 rounds, Stevenson and Judah are proof of that. Prayers for Zab Judah, hopefully he makes a good recovery like Adonis Stvevenson.

2 days after my previous comment, Judah is out of hospital and will be fine, which is great news! Judah must retire, I'm sure he will after the brain bleed scare. Judah should walk away from boxing, a proud man, he has achieved a lot in boxing, has a great career to look back on.

This was the win of Seldin's career, it will put him in a better position for bigger fights, he is not world level, and he couldn't have beat a prime Judah, but he does have power, his output, stamina was good in this fight, and he is an entertaining fighter, so he is a good opponent, should get more opportunities.
