Garcia-Judah, Quillin-Guerrero is Moving To April 27th

By Rick Reeno

While the finishing touches are still being worked out, Golden Boy Promotions' February 9th event is being postponed to April 27th. The card will still take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The card took a major hit when the headliner, WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (25-0, 16KOs), was forced to withdraw on Sunday with a rib injury. Garcia was scheduled to face two-division former champion Zab Judah (42-7, 29 KOs) in the Showtime televised main event of the evening. The boxer was injured during a sparring session with former champion DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley.

"We are working on everything as we speak. But it looks like the entire card with move to April 27th at Barclay Center. People who purchased tickets can either get a full refund or roll the tickets over to April 27th," Schaefer advised BoxingScene.com.

Other fights, which were part of the Garcia-Judah card, and will now move to the new April date, include the following - WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin (28-0, 20 KOs) defending his title against Fernando Guerrero (25-1, 19 KOs) in the televised co-feature, middleweight Daniel Jacobs (24-1, 21 KOs) facing Billy Lyell (24-11, 5 KOs), and Dmitriy Salita (35-1-1, 18 KOs) going up against Hector Camacho Jr. (54-5-1, 29 KOs).

WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi was originally scheduled to headline the April date at Barclays, also televised on Showtime, but his fight with Shane Mosley fell through a few days ago. Malignaggi was not satisfied with the financial terms. At the moment there has been no determination on when, or where, Malignaggi's next fight will land.

Garcia disposed of Khan in 4 ****ing rounds. If he takes a rematch with Khan over a fight with Matthysse, it is an inexcusable disgrace. Utter horse****.

[QUOTE=wazaa.;12964865]Garcia is ducking Matthysse. Let there be no doubt. The only reason they rescheduled it to April is so they can shortly after introduce Khan-Garcia II. Had Garcia beaten Judah in February, he would have HAD to fight Matthysse next…
