2000-06-24 Zab Judah w pts 12 Junior Witter, Hampden Park, Glasgow, Scotland - IBF. Referee: Roy Francis. Scorecards: 116-112, 118-110, 118-111. Taking the fight at a week’s notice, the challenger showed no sign of nerves in his first major championship battle and at times made Judah (139¾) look quite ordinary as he made life difficult for the southpaw champion with his movement. Although Judah was constantly the aggressor he had great difficulty in getting solid shots on Witter (139¼), but while defending well the latter did not score enough himself and had to settle for being a very good loser whose time would come at a later date.
