Tensions flared over the last few months as Unified Super Lightweight World Champion Danny ‘Swift’ Garcia and former Four-Time and Two-Division World Champion Zab ‘Super’ Judah geared up for their Saturday, April 27 world championship fight at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, which will be televised live on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING. Garcia, Judah and their camps had to be separated mid-way through the initial press conference at Gallagher’s Steakhouse in New York City after Garcia’s father Angel made comments while addressing the media. Judah took offense to Angel’s promise that his son, the WBA Super, WBC and Ring Magazine Super Lightweight World Champion would knock out the Brooklyn native. 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 sponsor Corona.
