The February 9 fight between unified super lightweight world champion Danny “Swift” Garcia against former two-division world champion Zab “Super” Judah almost took place Saturday afternoon at a press conference in New York that turned into a brawl when Garcia’s father, Angel, and Judah traded insults and the fighters and their camps had to be separated. “My dad was just stating true facts,” Garcia said during Saturday’s Showtime telecast. “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.”

During the presser Garcia told Judah, “On February 9th I’ll teach you to respect people older than you. I’m going to punish you. I’m going to leave you lying in the ring.”
