Yoel Judah Talks Zab’s Return, Mayweather-Canelo and Garcia-Matthysse

008 Zab speed bag IMG_5150After the Zab Judah loss to Danny Garcia in April, the Brooklyn product received much praise for his efforts. Judah battled back from two knockdowns to come on strong late, while the much younger Garcia faded. There is however one person who isn’t so impressed with Judah’s performance that night.

His father and former trainer Yoel Judah.

“I thought Zab should’ve won the fight, I really thought Zab should’ve knocked Garcia out,” Judah said. “That’s what he should’ve did. All this talk that he came close and he looked good, he knows I’m not going for none of that.”


Garcia defeats Judah; Quillin defeats Guerrero in mismatch

35-year-old Zab Judah (42-8, 29 KO’s) gave it a good shot tonight but in the end he was beaten by WBA/WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia (26-0, 16 KO’s) in a 12 round unanimous decision loss at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Judah was in command of the fight in the last three rounds of the fight, but unfortunately for him he ran out of time and ended losing. The scores were 115-112, 114-112, 116-111.

Garcia fought well in the first 8 rounds in using his right hand to do most of the damage. Judah did a good job of neutralizing Garcia’s left hook and jab. Garcia’s right hand proved to be enough for him to control the rounds and build up a big lead. However, the crowd seemed to motivate Judah to another level starting in the 9th round when he was able to land some really big shots that stopped Garcia in his tracks.

Judah continued to land the far bigger punches in rounds 10, 11 and 12 to dominate the rounds. Garcia kept firing back, but his punches weren’t nearly as significant as Judah’s.


Danny Garcia injured in sparring, fight with Judah moved to April 27th

By Rob Smith: WBA/WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia suffered a rib injury while sparring with journeyman DeMarcus Corley a little over a week ago, and the injury isn’t healing quick enough for the 24-year-old Garcia to defend his titles against Zab Judah in their previously scheduled fight on Showtime on February 9th at the Barclays Center, in Brooklyn, New York.


Judah to Garcia: You faker!

Zab JudahBy Jeff Sorby: Former two division world champion Zab Judah was ready to give WBA/WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia the benefit of the doubt that he had suffered a rib injury and that he wouldn’t be able to face him on February 9th in their previously scheduled out at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

However, after hearing an interview at theKoncretejungle.com by Garcia’s chief sparring partner DeMarcus Corley, who said that Garcia injured right thumb, not his ribs, Judah is now wondering why Garcia mentioned a rib injury as his excuse for not being able to fight him.

Corley said Garcia hurt his right thumb when Corley blocked a right hand from Garcia during a sparring session. Garcia then had to ice his thumb and it continued to give him problems all week. Corley said Garcia went to the doctor to get his thumb treated, and when it became clear that the thumb wasn’t going to heal in time for the February 9th fight with Judah, Garcia then postponed the fight.


Danny Garcia vs. Zab Judah Predictions

1214By Chip Mitchell and Robert Uzzell:

Robert Uzzell:

Danny “Swift” Garcia

Danny Garcia is a hot ticket fighter right now. Fresh off of an upset victory over Amir “King” Khan, Danny’s last outing saw him ice Erik Morales in a rematch last October. His confidence is at an all-time high. He has wins over Khan, Morales (twice), Kendall Holt, Nate Campbell, and Mike Arnaoutis.

Danny has fought guys who were considered a little past it (Kendall Holt) and far past it (Morales twice). No matter how you see it, the WBA/WBC light welterweight champion is 25-0 heading into the showdown with Judah.


Judah: I’m going to take Garcia’s ‘O’ away on February 9th

By Bill Phanco: Former two division world champion Zab Judah (42-7, 29 KO’s) sees himself beating WBA/WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia (25-0, 16 KO’s) on February 9th in Brooklyn, New York and handing him his first defeat of his still young career. In analyzing Garcia’s game, Judah feels that all Garcia has is a left hook and he sees him as a fighter that has been over-hyped by boxing fans.
