Mosley/Judah

Welterweights Shane Mosley and Zab Judah meet on May 31 in Las Vegas, Nev. Judah has had a career of mixed results.
He has beaten the likes of Junior Witter, Micky Ward and DeMarcus Corley. He also gave sluggish performances in losses to Carlos Baldomir and Cory Spinks. He's also given top notch fighters like Miguel Cotto and Floyd Mayweather tough times.
The fight with Mayweather could be the 30-year-old's last big fight unless he pulls off the win. Judah has a good skill level, but the longer the fight goes against good fighters as of late, it seems as if he tires.
Judah needs a good training camp and if he goes into the fight with Mosley in the best of shape, he will give Mosley a good fight.
But expect Mosley to win. He gave Cotto everything he could in their meeting last year and he still looks like has plenty in the tank. Plus, Judah is not as strong a puncher as some of the others that Mosley has faced.
Mosley isn't in his prime like he was 10 years ago, but he's still one of the best around and he is still a dangerous welterweight and still a danger to the top fighters in his weight class.
Judah will give Mosley a battle early on, but Mosley will be too much late in the fight and will win by a comfortable margin on all three scorecards.
