Garcia v Judah postponed



A rib injury has forced Danny Garcia to postpone his title defence against Zab Judah.

The WBC and WBA junior welterweight champion was injured during training, promoters announced in New York.

The fight was scheduled for February 9 but the undefeated champion will now meet Judah in Brooklyn on April 27.

Garcia, who has not lost in 25 professional bouts and has knocked out 16 or his opponents, will defend both titles against the 35-year-old former champion.

Judah, who has compiled a record of 42-7, with 29 knockouts, will be fighting in his hometown.

Garcia beat Mexico's Erik Morales on points over 12 rounds to win the WBC title in March last year. In July he stopped England’s Amir Khan in the fourth round to take the WBA title.

In November, Garcia knocked out Morales in the fourth round of a rematch in the first boxing card at the new Brooklyn arena to keep both his titles and set up the bout against Judah.
