Alex Luces reporting from New York: Angel Garcia, father of undefeated WBA and WBC light. welterweight champion, Danny garcia, was as quotable as ever. While he apologized for the manner in which he handled Zab Judah’s impromptu appearance at a Brooklyn signing model session, where sparks flew involving the Garcia and Judah’s camps. The elder Garcia was still upset about it and voiced his opinion on the whole situation.


"I don’t hate the man. I don;t hate anyone in life," the elder Garcia said. "I hate arrogant people. He’s very arrogant and very dumb and very stupid. The things he did yesterday with little kids around."


Angel then went on to give his prediction of the in both Spanish and English when his son defends his titles against Judah at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn


"Judah is nobody special. He’s just a fighter like any other fighter. People aske me can Danny fight a southpaw? Can Judah fight a right hander? We know the answer to that. Everytime he fought a right hander he lost."


"I want his body to ship all over the next way. Danny said four rounds. I give him consideration I give him five rounds, but if he gets fresh he’s going down early!


The undefeated welterweight champion (WBC & WBA titles was his usual calm self and simply said, "I feel good. I’m ready to go." He also gave a message to his Puerto Rican people. "Greetings to all my people in Puerto Rico. Support me and I love you."


Two other fighters looking to make a splash Saturday night are Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin and Fernando Guerrero.


The undefeated Quillin made no secret when asked if he was going to go for the knockout.


"I always do that," he said. "If they can’t stand up there with me then they’re going right away. I’m mentally prepared and physically prepared."


Quillin also said how important the legendary nickname is to him and his heritage is.



"Chamaco (Spanish for Kid) Chocolate is one of the greatest in Cuba and I gotta represent the name proudly."


Guerrero was more low-key though confident throughout.


"We’re so experienced now that this camp was close to perfection," Guerrero said.


Guerrero also said he would like to fight in his native Dominican Republic one day. He said he would like to inspire the youth from D.R. through boxing.


"(Dominican Republic) has never had a middleweight champion before. I want to make history. Do you know what we can do with a champion? Another young kid can want to become champion, they are the future. Dominicans are not only for baseball, we are a part of many things. We need one (a middleweight champion) and the proof will be on the 27th."


But before Garcia can become a PPV headliner, before Quillin can bring even more clout to a legendary name, and before Guerrero can make a triumphant return to his native country as a champion, each must get through their toughest test this Saturday night, April 27, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
