I've been watching Judah's career for years. The guy is known as a 4 round fighter. He fades in every single fight in the late rounds.

This is the same guy that got demolished by "no chin" to save his life, Amir Khan.

Now all of a sudden this guy is going 12 strong rounds with brutal body punchers like Mathyese and last night, Danny Garcia?

Something is not right.

Garcia destroyed Judah's body early, in the middle rounds, and late. Not only that, but he landed some serious shots to Judah's head, but instead of folding, Judah got stronger in the late rounds, despite maintaining a dedicated work rate early, and missing the vast majority of his punches.

I don't believe it. No way a 35 year old Zab all of a sudden became a late round monster, especially when his opponent was digging serious shots into his body and basically, giving him an all around beating.

They have got to mandate more PED testing in boxing. It's not fair when a guy has an obvious artificial advantage.

A true 38 year old man looks like Martinez who clearly showed his age last night. Marquez, a guy who took a number of beatings in his career, more than Martinez, is somehow becoming better at 40 when everyone else is slowing down.

The same thing happened last night with Judah.

Peterson is a guy in the same boat. How is Peterson still in the sport? How many times do you have to get caught using steriods before they ban you from the sport?

I believe Peterson started using when Bradley beat him pillar to post.

Speaking of Bradley, I feel sorry for him. I hope he asks for VADA testing. Marquez is going to come out juiced to the eyeballs and he may do serious, career ending damage to Bradley.

I never liked Judah and the loudmouth way he presents himself. Sick to death of that Brooklyn "better than everyone else" bravado. But until he gets tested and they discover PEDs, I'm not going to assume that he used them because he put on an uncharacteristic performance against Garcia by lasting the distance. Could be that he, recognizing that his days are numbered, was more motivated than at any previous time in his career. He's been humbled in the ring over the years. He has kids now. He has matured. Frankly, it was the first time that I was hoping that he'd win. I've never been impressed with Garcia.

Marquez was not on PEDs. He was most familiar with Pacman than any fighter, and made the adjustment. He's a smart fighter, but not even PEDs can overcome Father Time and an unfamiliar opponent who brings more to the table that he was prepared to face.

I don't know much about Bradley and Peterson.

We also don't know how Zab trains now compared to how he's trained in the past. And I don't think we can say Marquez is markedly better (or better at all) as a 40-year old version of himself. His stamina didn't seem so great when Pac was beating him in the early rounds.
