Daniel Harvey Judah (born August 8, 1977) is an American professional boxer. He is the brother of Zab Judah and Josiah Judah, who are also professional boxers.

Boxing career[edit]

Judah had his pro debut on June 18, 1999.

Although Judah has never fought for a major title, he has fought several notable foes, including former Light Heavyweight champ Glen Johnson (boxer) (Draw), Julian Letterlough (Draw), Elvir Muriqi (Decision Loss), Eric Harding (Decision Loss),[1] and Darnell Wilson (TKO loss).

The TKO loss in 2006 to Wilson was his first KO loss, and occurred after a serious injury. According to ringside reports, "just 33 seconds into round four, a right hand from Wilson landed on the shoulder of Judah, and a cracking sound could be heard at ringside. Judah turned away writhing in pain, his shrieks could be heard throughout the ballroom. Referee Malik Waleed, like many in attendance, seemed miffed by the occurrence, he then summoned the ringside physician to inspect the injured fighter. Judah shrieked as soon as his stiffened arm was touched by Doctor Douglass Frankel, M.D."[2]

He was slated to have shoulder surgery in April 2007.[3]

Family[edit]

Judah's father is an avowed Black Hebrew Israelite, which is a sect of Christianity.[4] though Judah's family has declared themselves "Jewish".[5][6] Judah's brother Zab has been referred to in the press as "the best Jewish fighter of all time." [7]
