Short hooks: Judah back on ESPN2

Updated: January 26, 2007, 1:53 PM ET
• Zab Judah's April 27 comeback fight in the Memphis suburb of Southaven, Miss., will be televised on ESPN2's "Friday Night Fights." The former undisputed welterweight champ will face an opponent to be named, although Prize Fight promoter Brian Young told ESPN.com that Gilberto Reyes or Hector Munoz are possible opponents. Judah (34-4, 25 KOs), who has lost two fights in a row, will be coming back from the one-year suspension he received from Nevada officials for his part in the melee that erupted during the 10th round of his eventual decision loss to Floyd Mayweather last April.

• Former cruiserweight titlist Wayne Braithwaite (21-2, 17 KOs) returns from a 16-month layoff to fight an opponent to be named on the untelevised Tomasz Adamek-Chad Dawson undercard Feb. 3 in Kissimmee, Fla. Braithwaite made three title defenses before losing a decision to Jean-Marc Mormeck in an April 2005 unification fight. Braithwaite lost his next fight, too, a fourth-round knockout to Guillermo Jones in September 2005, and he hasn't fought since.

• Exciting featherweight prospect Jason Litzau (20-1, 18 KOs), who suffered his first loss when he was stopped by Jose Hernandez in the eighth round of a fight he was easily winning Dec. 16, is set to return. Litzau, 23, will face an opponent to be determined in his hometown of St. Paul, Minn., on the April 25 episode of ESPN2's "Wednesday Night Fights."
