TRENTON, NJ — Zab “Super” Judah was victorious in his return to the ring after three-plus years away. The 39-year-old picked up a second-round knockout over Jorge Luis Manguia at the Bridge Wars: The Kingdom of Judah main event at the Sun National Bank Center in Trenton, N.J.
This was Judah’s first knockout since he defeated Vernon Paris on March 24, 2012, his last win. He improved to 43-9 in his career with 30 career knockouts.
His win snaps a two-fight losing streak for the Brooklyn, N.Y. native. Manguia — who fell to 12-8 in his career — put up little fight as Judah dominated the entire two rounds.
Manguia has now lost five straight fights.
Derrick Webster won a unanimous decision to win the vacant United States Boxing Organisation’s Super Middleweight title over Thomas Awimbono in the co-main event. One judge had the fight 100-90 in favor of Awimbono, while two judges had it 98-92 with Webster winning.
This is the 34-year-old Webster’s first major championship. He lost his previous title fight on July 17, 2015, when he lost in a unanimous decision to Arif Magamedov in the Sands Bethlehem Event Center in Bethlehem, PA.
In a special six-round feature — which took place after Judah’s main event — Trenton native Mike Hilton defeated Eric George via knockout at 2:33 in the fifth round of their cruiserweight bout. Following the fight, Bryan Daniels — who fought earlier on the card — called Hilton out for a fight.
Hilton improved to 5-0 in his career, all knockouts — and this is his second win in his hometown, as he also had a win at home in Oct. 2016. George fell to 4-14 and he has lost four straight fights.
Daniels won via unanimous decision over Damian Lewis in their cruiserweight fight. Two judges had the fight 39-37 in favor of Daniels, while the other judge had the fight 40-36.
Daniels moves to 3-0 with the win. Lewis will look to pick up his first win in his next fight, as he fell to 0-3.
Jimmy Kelleher got a second-round knockout of Courtney McCleave in their super welterweight bout. McCleave appeared to give up, before the referee stopped the fight at 2:26 in the second round in their middleweight fight.
Kelleher improved to 3-0, all knockouts. McCleave fell to 2-6.
Andy Gonzalez improved to 1-1 with a TKO just 32 seconds into his fight with Jason Ward in a lightweight fight. Gonzalez went to 1-1, while Ward fell to 0-2.
Brandon Robinson defeated Jermaine Corley in a first-round TKO at 2:59 in cruiserweight. Robinson improved to 1-1, while Corley is winless at 0-5.
