Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer confirmed the news to WBN today, along with dismissing any possibility of a rematch between Quillin and Frenchman Hassan N’Dam at the same venue where the two fought an entertaining battle last October.
The Barclays Center bill, which is topped by the grudge match between feuding light-welterweights Garcia and Judah, will be the second huge card to feature at the impressive venue since it’s completion this year.
Also taking a slot on the undercard is the in-form Danny Jacobs, who has stopped two opponents since resuming his career following a life-threatening illness and will aim to improve his 24-1 record on the night.
Jacobs, 25, stopped Josh Luteran in just 73 seconds the last time he graced the arena and could potentially be in-line for another world title in 2013, against all the odds – if he can continue his progress on February 9.
Both fighters’ opponents will be announced in the near future.
