Danny Garcia vs. Zab Judah II Is a Must!

I am not a fan of the “what if” articles, but if the fight was fifteen rounds instead of twelve, Zab Judah might have walked away with a ‘W’ on his record. I know that these types of arguments are absolutely futile, but I guess what I am trying to say, is that I want to see those two fight each other again.

Judah got comfortable and started fighting his fight after he got knocked down, which is something that none of us had expected. As mentioned during the telecast, he usually tends to start fading towards the end of the fight, but against Garcia, he did just the opposite. He not only started landing clean shots, but was avoiding Garcia’s counters beautifully. I guess his new clean family style of life is paying off.

Danny also fought like a champion, and won like one as well. He had the fight his way, and controlled the action during the entire stretch of the bout, even when he himself was being hit. I think that Garcia has yet to show the world what he is capable of, but he needs to clean up his offensive style just a little bit.

Those wide reaching right hand shots would have him in deep trouble if he was fighting a counter puncher like Marquez, Mayweather Jr., or even a former Zab Judah. They reach far, leaning him forward too far, making him very easy to hit for someone quick enough.

It was a great fight, and I believe that Judah ended up a people’s winner as well. He not only proved his heart and determination, but showed that his skill and speed remain steady. The fact that has was able to tag Garcia in such a clean fashion shows that Zab had the timing down towards the later rounds in the fight, and that’s one of the most important things to figure out when facing a power puncher.

I most definitely think that Garcia and Judah need to fight again, and it should happen sooner rather than later.

Danny Garcia vs. Zab Judah On Saturday, February 9, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn,NY.

According to various sources along with BoxRec, Danny Garcia will put his titles on the line against Zab Judah on Saturday, February 9, 2013, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

I don’t know about you, but this could end up being one of the most entertaining fights this year. Both fighters don’t mind trading shots as well as both of them are much more aggressive rather than defensive.

For Garcia, this is yet another great name to add to his record beside Erik Morales and Amir Khan. Having said that,Judah should be able to put up a much tougher challenge than either of the two. Despite Zab being older and in my opinion way past him prime, he is still impressively quick and accurate.

This is an important fight for both of them, with clear benefits of a victory and the consequences of a loss. For both Garcia and Judah, a win could spell an opportunity to demand a mega fight with a decent argument in favor of it.

Another way this could all go down is if Amir Khan ends up definitively beating Carlos Molina, than he would no doubt ask for the winner of Garcia vs.Judah. He had faced them both before, beating one and losing to the other, but a fighter against the winner only makes sense.


As far as my pick of Garcia vs. Judah goes, I think that Garcia should be able to pull this one of, and I would not be at all shocked if he knocks Judah down, and possibly out. But generally I like to hear more news, updates, and watched some videos before making a final prediction. Let’s see what we hear on this fight in the next few weeks.

Zab Judah Wants Danny Garcia Next. Sounds Like A Good Fight!

If not all of you, than most of you have already heard that Zab Judah (42-7-0) is trying to secure a fight against Danny Garcia (25-0-0). Garcia’s recent 4th round knockout of legendary Erik Morales did not come as a surprise to most, as Morales is well past his prime, and most certainly is in no shape to stand and fight with the much younger and hungrier champions.

Not Morales, but maybe Judah is. Of all the possible future opponents for Garcia, Judah actually seems like a viable option, as the fight would likely prove to be not only entertaining but most importantly competitive.

Garcia has done a lot in boxing in the recent past, yet I am still not sold on him. Beating Morales proved only one thing, and it’s that team Garcia sure knows how to waste precious time. I see a completely different fight if Zab faces Danny in the near future.

While Judah is not what he used to be my any means, his hand speed has certainly remained. Garcia is generally an offensive fighter, but against Judah, only power will be to his advantage, as speed and experience will play a very important role but not in his favor. If they happen to stand and bang, I believe that Judah will end up in the same situation as Morales did, but if Garcia has to spend half of the fight chasing Judah while being peppered with shots, it might turn out to be a rough night for the “Swift” Garica.
