BoxingScene.com caught up with former two-division champion Zab Judah immediately following his confrontation with Angel Garcia, the father/trainer of WBC/WBA 140-pound champion Danny Garcia.
During the official press conference to announce the Garcia-Judah fight for February 9th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn - Judah and Angel started trading words and the exchange of verbal bombs nearly escalated to the point of an all-out brawl between both camps.
Judah felt Angel was trying to put on a show for the cameras and the press. The day before the Saturday press conference, Judah claims the two sides saw each other and Angel was "very humble."
"You see him yesterday, you see him today, it's a whole different story. Now when we're around with the security and everybody, where it's contained, it's a whole different situation. I don't wanna put nothing out there, but I seen them yesterday. They seen me yesterday. A no security environment. Everybody, including his father, was humble," Judah told BoxingScene.com.
"Now he gets here in front of all this media and the press today, and they wanna put on this big show. That's not them, man. They're not really like that. That's why I got so mad. Everybody thinks, 'Oh, Zab got mad for no reason.' No, y'all don't understand. I seen these people yesterday, it was a whole different situation."
"Now we get today in front of the cameras, he wanna put on some big shenanigan show. That's not cool. You picked the wrong person for that. You don't do that. But February 9th, y'all come watch me torture Danny Garcia, from round one to round whenever it's all over."
