Garcia & Judah are kept apart during weigh-in; Quillin-Guerrero make weight
BROOKLYN, N.Y. (April 26, 2013) – Both undefeated Unified Super Lightweight World Champion Danny “Swift” Garcia and former Two-Division World Champion Zab Judah weighed in separately Friday, and made the weight. Undefeated WBO Middleweight World Champion Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin and challenger Fernando Guerrero weighed in together and both did not.
In what should be a passionately contested main event tomorrow, Saturday, April 27 live on SHOWTIME (9 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast) from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Garcia (25-0, 16 KO’s), of Philadelphia, will defend his WBA Super, WBC and Ring Magazine 140-pound World Championships against the local favorite, Judah (42-7, 29 KO’s), of Brooklyn.
Quillin (28-0, 20 KO’s), of Manhattan, will risk his 160-pound belt against the hard-hitting Guerrero (25-1, 19 KO’s), of Salisbury, Md., in the co-feature.
Like Thursday’s press conference, Garcia and Judah were kept far apart and did not appear on the stage together. Friday, at Barclays Center, Garcia weighed in first and tipped the scale at 139.8 pounds. A few minutes later Judah weighed in at 140. Judah, wearing only underwear and socks, was initially a few ounces over but he removed the socks and hit the division-limit.
Both Quillin and Guerrero came in heavy on their first attempts. Quillin was 1½ pounds over the 160-pound limit, Guerrero weighed 160.4. An hour later they both returned to the scale and weighed 160.
