Garcia could be a Brooklyn bridge too far for 'Super' Judah

WBA/WBC light welterweight Danny Garcia (25-0) meets Zab Judah (42-7) on Saturday night ready to settle over six months of animosity at Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York.

The two boxers online squabbling and the near brawl between the two camps have quite simply sold the fight.

After a double postponement Garcia-Judah is going ahead, in what could logically be Zab's final shot at world glory. 

Southpaw Judah, 35, eyes his seventh and eighth world title on home soil. Deep into his 36th year, Judah has plenty of experience, although his showing against former Garcia's foe Amir Khan is the worrying factor, and for that reason I can't see past a victory for the 140 pound champion.

Judah was comprehensively out-boxed by Khan over five rounds almost two years ago, and despite some claiming a low blow finished the fight, the Briton was well on his way to victory without it.

Garcia is the younger, fresher and stronger fighter at 25-years-old, and as with his dominating wins over Khan and Erlk Morales, who tested positive for the banned anabolic agent clenbuterol ahead of the fight, can continue his reign as the best light welterweight on the planet.

In the chief support, we could see the fight of the night as WBO middleweight title holder Peter 'Kid Chocolate' Quillin (28-0) battles Fernando Guerrero (25-1)  with the fight not necessarily on course to go the full twelve rounds.

While it lasts, I can see the fight being a enthralling tear up.
