Zab Judah loses unanimously to Danny Garcia
Danny Garcia unanimously outpointed Brooklyn’s Zab Judah on Saturday night at Barclays Center to retain the WBA and WBC junior welterweight titles.
Garcia (26-0, 16 KOs) dominated the 35-year-old former champion, although Judah came back in the 10th and 11th rounds to land some hard shots and shake the champion from Philadelphia.
The judges scored the fight 116-111, 115-112 and 114-112, with all three giving Judah the last three rounds when Garcia seemed to tire.
“I love the atmosphere. I love the fans. In order to take over someone’s territory, you’ve got to beat the guy from there,” Garcia said in the post-fight news conference.
