The undefeated Garcia suffered a rib injury in training, and the bout, which had been due to take place on February 9, will now take place on Apri 27l.

The fight card will remain at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Judah's hometown.

Garcia beat Mexico's Erik Morales in a unanimous 12-round decision last March to claim the WBC crown, then took the WBA title from Amir Khan with a fourth-round stoppage last July.

In November Garcia knocked out Morales in the fourth round in a rematch in the first boxing card at the new Brooklyn arena to keep both his titles and set up the Judah bout.
