Judah: "Margarito is basic and one dimensional!"

Judah: "Margarito is basic and one dimensional!"

"As the undisputed king looking down on these queens, I wasn't impressed!"

Immediately after ESPN's PPV had concluded, Boxingtalk.com received a call from undisputed welterweight champion Zab "Super" Judah. As you could imagine, Judah had a lot to say about WBO welterweight champ Antonio Margarito's domination of Kermit Cintron, as well as Shane Mosley's victorious return to the welterweight division he rules. "Kermit the quitter Chingone better watch who he calls out, because there's no way he ever wanted any of this over here. He saw his own blood and he froze up. He's a chump." You definitely don't want to miss what the welterweight king had to say in this must read interview ONLY on Boxingtalk!

GL: Can you tell us what you thought about Margarito's performance and Mosley's return to welterweight?

Zab Judah: "Antonio Margarito is one dimensional, he's very basic and Nosley...man. If David Estrada had a little bit more heart and wasn't so scared of those body shots he could've probably done a lot more damage to Nosley. I wasn't impressed with nobody and as the undisputed king looking down on these queens I wasn't impressed at all.

"The only thing that impressed me tonight was Calvin Brock's heart, that's it. He put on a great performance and I respect his heart. But the rest of these dudes should work their way up because they've got a long way to go before they're ready to come in there with me. And that's for real."

"Mosley was saying he was going to be a monster and he couldn't do nothing against a deadman. Estrada did good, he stepped up and with eighteen fights he took Mosley ten rounds. You have to give him a lot of credit for that. Mosley is still on my radar but he needs to work his way up. He ain't did nothing to impress me and show me that he deserves a shot at the undisputed."

GL: Does Margarito deserve a shot at the undisputed?

ZJ: "Yes he does. He beat up a fighter that was a lot of hype and I want to be known as the Mexican assasin. First it's going to be Cosme Rivera, then I want De La Hoya and Antonio Margarito. And after I beat them all I may change my nickname to the Mexican assasin."

GL: Even though you feel Margarito deserves a shot at the titles, he's still behind guys like Oscar De La Hoya and Kostya Tszyu on your things to do list, correct?

ZJ: "Right now I'm being real with you I want Cosme Rivera, then Oscar De La Hoya and then Margarito. If Kostya Tszyu comes to my house, you know that's a fight that I want more than anything except De La Hoya."
