Thomas Gerbasi tracks down Zab Judah, 41 years old and on the comeback trail, to ind out why he is inding it so hard to say goodbye

STAY in anything long enough and the details of the past start to fade from memory. Some things you don’t forget, though.

August 2000. Zab Judah is 22 years old, 23-0 as a pro and the IBF super-lightweight champion of the world. Already making headlines in his native New York, his profile was rapidly rising on the international scene and he knew it. A win over former champ Terron Millett would move him closer to a dream fight with fellow title-holder Kostya Tszyu, and a victory there would complete “Super” Judah’s coronation as boxing’s latest superstar.

But first was Millett, and Judah wasn’t giving out predictions, but he did promise something special.
