Danny Garcia Has Rib Injury, Withdraws, To See Doctor

By Mike Coppinger

As BoxingScene.com first reported last night, WBA/WBC junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia was considering pulling out of his scheduled February 9th fight with Zab Judah - and we can now confirm Garcia suffered a rib injury [though the extent is unknown].

Garcia's managerial team led by Al Haymon hasn't returned calls for comment. Golden Boy Promotions' Robert Diaz has not been able to officially confirm the withdrawal.

Garcia's team members have advised Judah that Danny won't move forward on the February date due to the rib injury. Garcia reportedly suffered the injury over the weekend [rumored to have happened during a sparring session] and he was trying to sleep it off.

If is unclear if Showtime will go with a late replacement against Judah. The scheduled co-feature pits WBO middleweight king Peter Quillin against another Haymon client in Fernando Guerrero. Both Garcia and Judah believe their fight will be postponed to a later date.

A source tells BoxingScene that Garcia will see a doctor on Monday to determine when he is capable of returning.

The Showtime televised event is scheduled to take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

No fans had shown any interest in watching Garcia or Judah. Fake injury to delay the bout for promoters to get a better undercard. They might have to give the tickets away to get fans to come out.

So everyone knows, the whole card is postponed for Feb. 9th... SO NO FIGHTS ON FEB. 9th.... new date could be April 27, since Golden Boy Promotions already has that date taken at Barclay's Center in New York... And whatever…
