NEW YORK – A rib injury sustained during training has forced undefeated champion Danny Garcia to postpone his scheduled February 9 title defense against Zab Judah to April 27, promoters announced on Sunday.

Garcia, 25-0 with 16 knockouts, was to have defended his World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association junior welterweight crowns against 35-year-old Judah, 42-7 with 29 knockouts, in an all-American showdown.

The fight card will remain at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Judah’s hometown.


Garcia beat Mexico’s Erik Morales in a unanimous 12-round decision last March to claim the WBC crown, then took the WBA title from England’s Amir Khan with a fourth-round stoppage last July.

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