Doth Not A Competitive Fight Make: Danny Garcia vs. Zab Judah Preview

One of the more interesting things about the Danny Garcia vs. Zab Judah bout this weekend, is that if you were to ask fans at random, you'd get varying answers as to whether or not the fight itself is all that interesting.

In many sporting realms, rivalries can serve to add interest to what is otherwise an drab match up. And if rivalries do indeed aid in rescuing sporting events from the world of the mundane, Garcia vs. Judah may prove to be salvageable in that regard. 

Much of the bout's intrigue, if there was much to begin with, has been amplified by the constant feuding between Judah and both Danny Garcia and his father, Angel. Writer George Eliot said in "Middlemarch," her highly regarded novel dealing with social issues, "It's a father's duty to give his sons a fine chance." And indeed, it would seem to be the quirks and eccentricities of the fathers that have led the sons to the gate they now stand before.
