Ex-champ Zab Judah trains as a nurse, now caring for the elderly
Former world champion Zab Judah is now a trained nurse working with dementia patients despite returning to boxing from a four-year hiatus earlier this year.
The 40 year-old has completed a course with Excelling Nursing Academy and now helps primarily elderly patients, according to director Teberah Alexander who spoke with TMZ Sports.
Judah himself is embracing his work and is reaping the rewards that come with devoting some of his time to helping others.
“To touch another’s life brings out the true champ in me! I have grown to humble myself and in return it’s appreciated by our students. Congrats students you all are my champs!” said Judah before urging others who wish to follow him to sign up for the course.

During his long career, Judah claimed the world super-lightweight crown on four separate occasions, unifying the division in 2005 at the height of his tenure.
A year later, Judah went up against Floyd Mayweather in bad-blooded affair before losing out on points to the world’s number one fighter.
‘Super’ Judah initially retired in 2013 before returning in January 2017 to knock out Jorge Luis Munguia in two rounds at the Sun National Bank Center in Trenton.
In May of this year, Judah escaped prison on a domestic violence charge and is yet to announce if he will launch another attempt to secure a fight in 2018.
