    Ive seen a few Zab Judah fights and all he does is yell "You gotta throw more punches" at Zab

    Well, that's better than "empty the tank" and "lions in the camp".

    Yes. I feel like with a better trainer, Zab could've pulled out a win over Cotto, for example. He would also lose focus in fights, Baldomir, for example. Whom he had no business losing too.

    I think Zab needed a more cerebral trainer, someone who could help him make the adjustments along the course of a fight. Virgil Hunter comes to mind.

    Exactly Yoel Judah would just yell at Zab "Throw your hands more" over and over again

    Judah is just another dad who had no business training his kid, and Zab needed the help.

    But his pops has a lot of company in the bad training department. "Double the ****ing jab" became a meme on here.

    He showed what he was capable of in the early part of the Mayweather fight. Faster and hit harder, but lacked discipline and focus.

    Zab is the only guy I have seen beating Mayweather to the punch.

    In fairness, that was often the only real advice he required and he didn't listen to it. He had most things down. Because he was well-trained.

    He could have been mentioned with Pac and Mayweather as the best of that era.

    Virgil Hunter is too cerebral for a hothead like Zab. I think a fiery trainer like Barry Hunter would be a good fit. I'd also like to see what the equally fiery Kevin Cunningham could do with a southpaw boxer/puncher like Zab. Cunningham has an outstanding track record with lighter punching southpaws (Cory Spinks and Devon Alexander).
