Judah-Malignaggi slated for Dec. 7


Golden Boy Promotions has officially announced the welterweight bout between Brooklyn-born former titleholders Paulie Malignaggi and Zab Judah at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Dec. 7 on Showtime.

Malignaggi (32-5, 7 knockouts) was last in the ring for a split-decision loss to Adrien “The Problem” Broner, who dethroned Malignaggi as WBA welterweight beltholder in June.

Judah (42-8, 29 KOs) is coming off a unanimous decision loss in April to RING, WBA and WBC junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia.

A press conference will be held on Tuesday at Barclays Center.
