LOS ANGELES, April 19 – Before Danny “Swift” Garcia defends his Unified Super Lightweight World Championship against former World Champion Zab Judah on April 27 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. live on SHOWTIME, the two super lightweight stars will be featured on FOX Deportes Classics on Saturday, April 20 at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT.
In the main event, Garcia squares off with future Hall of Famer Erik “El Terrible” Morales in their first of two bouts that took place in 2012 and in the co-feature, Judah faces one of the most feared men in boxing, Argentinean knockout artist Lucas Matthysse in their 2010 showdown.
Despite his success in the 140-pound division, no one outside of his team knew how Danny Garcia would react to facing a legend like Erik Morales when they met in Houston, Texas on March 24, 2012. In his first world title fight, Philadelphia’s Garcia rose to the occasion, dropping Morales in the 11th round en route to a 12-round unanimous decision win that earned him the WBC 140-pound crown.
Former Two-Division World Champion Zab Judah had to walk through fire when he faced off against Lucas Matthysse at New Jersey’s Prudential Center on November 6, 2010. Judah rose from the canvas in the 10th round against his then-unbeaten foe to secure a 12-round split decision win and position him for a shot at the vacant IBF Junior Welterweight crown which he won four months later.
