Date : 09.02.2013 Time:
WBC World and WBA Super World Light-Welterweight champion Danny Garcia lines up a blockbuster defence of his belts against the four-time World champion Zab Judah. It's set to be a real grudge match after a stormy press conference between the two in December.
All hell broke loose at the press conference announcing the fight as Danny Garcia's outspoken father and trainer Angel reminded the world about Judah's humiliating 2001 defeat to Kostya Tszyu. Garcia Senior and Judah ended up nose-to-nose trading insults, before the 35-year-old Judah's entourage pulled him away from the conflict.
Garcia vs. Judah, a 12-round bout for Garcia’s Unified Super Lightweight World Championship, is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and supported by Golden Boy Promotions sponsors Corona and AT&T.
Judah isn’t ranked by the WBC, and he only has a #6 rankings by the WBA, meaning Garcia doesn’t have to fight Judah if he doesn’t want. It’s not as if Judah was Garcia’s mandatory challenger or anything. This was just a fight that Garcia’s promoters at Golden Boy Promotions wanted to put together because Judah is better known than most of Garcia’s contenders, and arguably a much lesser threat than Matthysse. While Judah does have a controversial victory over Matthysse two years ago while fighting at home in New York, there isn’t too many people who would give Judah any chance of beating Matthysse now, even by a controversial decision. Matthysse has gotten a lot better and Judah has aged.
