Lem's latest: Angry Angel says Judah gets KO'd in five
Angel Garcia, the father and trainer of Danny Garcia, called Zab Judah "a sissy" who is going to get his "ass whupped" for spoiling his son's promotional signing event at a Brooklyn sports outlet on Tuesday.
BROOKLYN -- The father and trainer of RING, WBA and WBC junior welterweight champion Danny "Swift" Garcia says that his son will score his third straight knockout against Zab "Super" Judah on Saturday night at Barclays Center, and that he will do so in five rounds or less.
Reached on Wednesday at the hotel where he and his son are staying, Angel Garcia expressed outrage that Judah interrupted a Tuesday promotional event involving Danny Garcia and a couple other fighters on the Garcia-Judah card at a nearby Modell's sports outlet.
"Danny's a quiet guy. But it's gotten personal now, with Danny. Zab offended us by showing up when he wasn't even supposed to be there. They were considering it crashing the party and all of that, but that was Modell's, and there were little kids there and all of that and ruin an appearance. So basically, that's why I know that he's a sissy. He ain't no real man," said Angel Garcia.
