Judah gets OK to fight again in Nevada after 2006 brawl at

Zab Judah was cleared to reapply for a license to fight in Nevada state, a move that paves the way for a bout against Shane Mosley in Las Vegas in the next few months.
Judah's license was revoked two years ago for a melee during a welterweight title fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The Nevada Athletic Commission was satisfied that the 30-year-old Judah (36-5) had behaved well in four recent fights elsewhere, but warned it would come down hard on him if he's involved in any more problems.
The commission also issued a 2008 license for the 36-year-old Mosley (44-5).
The panel revoked the Judah's license for his role in the April 8, 2006, fracas in the ring in Las Vegas. Judah was fined $250,000 (euro169,000). Yoel Judah, his father and trainer, was fined $100,000 (euro67,500).
Zab Judah was punished for punching Mayweather in the back of the head and for joining a fracas that ensued when Mayweather's trainer and uncle, Roger Mayweather, burst into the ring.
Yoel Judah was fined for being the second person to illegally rush into the ring and for punching Roger Mayweather.
The incident was the second involving Zab Judah in Las Vegas.
In 2001, he put his gloved fist on referee Jay Nady's throat after Nady stopped an IBF junior welterweight title bout between Judah and Kostya Tszyu in the second round and awarded Tszyu a technical knockout. Judah later also threw a stool at Nady. He was suspended for six months and fined $75,000 (euro51,000).
