Danny Garcia is the undefeated and current champion of the WBC, WBA, and The Ring super light welterweight division. Garcia will put all of his title belts on the line on February 9 as he takes on challenger Zab Judah, who is coming off an IBF light welterweight eliminator win and is a past champion in his own right. Garcia vs. Judah will take place from the Barclays Center in New York on February 9.
Zab Judah has a career record of 51 total fights with 42 wins, 7 losses, and 2 no contests with the Boxing odds. Judah has 29 wins by knockout and has won a total of 5 world championships in his career between the light welterweight and welterweight classes and was once the undisputed world welterweight champion. Judah will feel right at home was he hails from Brooklyn, NY where the Barclays Center is located. Judah is a southpaw and 35 years of age standing at 5 feet and 7 and one half inches with a reach of 72 inches.
The 24 year old Garcia has a record of 25 fights with 25 wins and 16 wins by knockout with the Boxing odds. Garcia is from Philadelphia, PA and is an orthodox fighter. Garcia has a Puerto Rican heritage and takes pride in it stating that he wants to be the next great Puerto Rican fighter. He is coming off a knockout win over Erik Morales in 4 rounds at the Barclays Center on October 20.
It’s hard to oppose a younger fighter who is showing dominance and that is where Garcia makes for such an attractive choice. The intangible would be Judah fighting on his home turf in Brooklyn.
