Zab Judah, one of the greatest boxers of his generation, has launched Celebrity Championship Boxing. The new promotion is set to feature stars of reality TV, social influencers and street fighters and debuts live on Fite.TV on April 3.
Judah spoke to Boxing Scene about his new venture. “I started this league to give rivals in sports & entertainment the opportunity to settle their differences in the ring,” said Judah. “There’s so much unnecessary gun violence, especially in Hip Hop. As a six-time World Boxing Champion, I want the youth to know that you can put the guns down and lace up the gloves.”
Judah’s first show is headlined by Don Bishop, a cast member of tattooing reality show Black Ink Crew: Chicago, versus SlapMaster, a champion from the world of slap-fighting.
Also on that card is a fight between Raz B, a member of the boy band B2K, and YouTuber Chris Sails. Rounding out the card is a bout for the CCB ‘Queen of Hip Hop’ title that pits Love & Hip Hop cast member Bianca Bonnie versus Miami based rapper Blanca La Fina and a fight that features Abira from the reality show Little Women of Atlanta taking on Left Cheek, who is on the show Little Women of Dallas.
