Zab Judah's Fall Cancels May 31 Fight With Sugar Shane Mosley

Looks like the top poll question here is going to need to be replaced. The AP and other media outlets are reporting that the Shane Mosley-Zab Judah fight is off after Judah fell and injured his right arm, requiring 50 stitches.

Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, is quoted as saying that efforts will be made to reschedule the fight. You have to wonder, though, if Mosley can afford to wait for Zab to heal. At 36, he's closing in on the end of his career, and unless he doesn't have any other options that make sense, he may not have the luxury of remaining inactive until Judah is ready to go. The AP story says Judah will have to miss training for four weeks.

An interesting side note to the story concerns exactly how Judah suffered the injury. Early reports claimed he hurt it while training, but MaxBoxing/BoxingScene.com now has a source that reports he fell in the shower.
