It’s no secret that Angel Garcia talks a lot of trash as father and trainer of junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia, who Saturday will defend his two belts against former two-division champion Zab Judah at Barclays Center in Brooklyn (on Showtime).
Let’s just say that Angel Garcia rubs a lot of people the wrong way. The way Judah sees it, he can take care of both of them in a few days.
“It’s called killing two birds with one stone,” Judah said. “Angel Garcia’s a trainer. He’s a father. He’s the older man. I respect my elders.At the same time, I can’t get in the ring and fight Angel Garcia. What do I do? I fight. I knock people out. I can’t do that with Angel. I am going to knock Danny Garcia out and watch Angel come in there and pick him up.”
Judah, a 35-year-old southpaw, is from Brooklyn. The former junior welterweight and welterweight champion is 42-7 with 29 knockouts. Garcia, 25, of Philadelphia, is 25-0 with 16 knockouts.
This fight is being staged by Golden Boy Promotions.
