Schaefer: Garcia to face Judah next
WBC and WBA light-welterweight champion Danny Garcia will defend his belts against former multi-time world title holder Zab Judah in a bout set to take place at The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer confirmed to WBN that the fight between the 140lb superstars is a done deal and only the venue availability is to be ironed out for the fight to be announced for February 9.
Garcia, 24, has had the year of his life after defeating Erik Morales twice and former pound for pound star Amir Khan and could be on his way to the accolade awarded to Andre Ward last year in the coming weeks.
35 year-old Judah has had contrasting fortunes in recent years, but the New Yorker never lies down from a defeat and has once again proved his longevity by clawing his way back to yet another title opportunity.
The fight would gain huge interest from the people of Brooklyn after a successful opening night on October 20 and realistically, there should be no problems with the venue being sealed in the near future.
