NEW YORK - His legs were fine, Danny Garcia said, but his arms were tight. The unified light-welterweight world champion was burned out in the later rounds of his bout Saturday night. But he had to go on. And he did. The 25-year-old from Juniata Park turned in an inspiring performance en route to a unanimous 12-round decision over Zab Judah at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. Garcia (26-0, 16 knockouts) scored a crucial eighth-round knockdown and held on as the 35-year-old Judah desperately sought a knockout.

Danny Garcia, Juniata Park's lightweight world champion, was unable to raise his hands above his head. It was just a cramp, Garcia thought after a January afternoon sparring session. But the red welt on his left rib worsened, and a hospital trip revealed that Garcia had bruised his ribs just two weeks before a scheduled title defense. Unable to train, Garcia postponed his fight and, after a six-week layoff, the 25-year-old will defend his unified lightweight titles in a 12-round bout against Brooklyn's Zab Judah on April 27 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Danny Garcia follows his father up the narrow, wooden staircase at Harrowgate Boxing Club in Juniata Park. Angel Garcia has led his son into the rugged gym on East Venango Street since 1998, when Angel Garcia saw boxing as a way to be a better father after his release from prison. This is the only gym the father and son, the unified light-welterweight world champion, have ever called home. But after Saturday night they will bid Harrowgate farewell. Danny Garcia (25-0, 16 KOs)

Undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. got past a slow start and dominated Zab Judah late, en route to claiming the IBF welterweight title last night in a fight marred by an ugly incident in the 10th round. Coming off a listless loss to unheralded Carlos Baldomir in January that saw him relinquish his WBC crown, Judah came out the aggressor and made critics second-guess their assertion that he did not deserve a shot at Mayweather (36-0, 24 KOs). By staggering Mayweather in the second with a powerful right and pinning his opponent to the ropes in the fourth, Judah (34-4)

THE LIST IS LONG and infamous. Roy Jones Jr., James "Buster" Douglas and Floyd Mayweather Jr. are just part of a countless stream of boxers who began their careers with fathers firmly entrenched in their corners and then pushed them out, the combustible child-parent dynamic ignited by money, meddling and the pressures that accompany the pursuit of a championship. Danny Garcia will turn 26 only 5 days after a March 15 stay-in-shape fight in Puerto Rico with Maricio Herrera, his first foray into the 147-pound division.

TO SAY THAT things are moving swiftly in the career of Danny Garcia would not be a play on the nickname of the Philadelphia world boxing champion. In a little more than a calendar year, "Swift" Garcia went from being a rising prospect to the unified champion at 140 pounds - with two impressive title defenses. On Sept. 14, Garcia (26-0 with 16 KOs) has the chance to vault into the realm of superstardom as he faces No. 1 contender Lucas "The Machine" Matthysse (34-2, 32 KOs) as the co-feature on the biggest fight card of the year.

Lucas Matthysse speaks little English and does not have a Twitter account. He prefers to communicate with his right hand. And the 30-year-old Argentine has ridden it to become boxing's most powerful puncher. Nobody wants to fight him, said Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe. Nobody except for Juniata Park's Danny Garcia, who will defend his unified light-welterweight world titles against Matthysse on Sept. 14 at Las Vegas' MGM Grand. "Danny Garcia stepped up and said, 'I want to be the one who beats this guy,' " Ellerbe said.

Before the first fan in line plopped his red Everlast boxing glove onto the table, he had a question for world champion Danny Garcia. "What's next for you?" he asked as Garcia signed autographs Thursday afternoon at Dr. Denim on South Street. It is one of boxing's burning questions after reports circulated this week that Garcia would defend his unified light-welterweight titles in a rematch with Zab Judah instead of meeting Lucas Matthysse. Garcia, a 25-year-old from Juniata Park, said he had no idea where those reports came from.
