With two such volatile characters it was no surprise that Saturday’s press conference to publicize the February 9 showdown between Danny Garcia and Zab Judah turned into a brawl when Garcia’s father, Angel, stated that his son would knock out the Brooklyn native. Judah took offense and the fighters and their camps had to be separated.
“Zab’s a crafty fighter, but I’m on top of my game and I’m ready to perform on February 9th,” Garcia said. “It’s crazy because all the guys I grew up watching I’m fighting now. It’s a blessing to be in the ring with these guys and I’m taking over.
“My dad was just stating true facts. Every time he [Judah] took a tough fight, he failed. Zab got mad, it broke out and there was a little riot at the press conference. My dad motivates me, he talks crap and I got to go back it up. If a fight breaks out, then I got his back.”
Garcia vs Judah takes place at the Barclays Center in New York and will be broadcast live on Showtime
