Zab Judah: Has been in training since November
Zab Judah believes the extra time he has had to prepare for his fight with Danny Garcia will pay off on Saturday night.
Judah takes on the WBC and WBA light-welterweight champion in Brooklyn, New York almost three months after they were first expected to get it on.
The February clash was called off when Garcia suffered a rib injury in training, but veteran Judah says the delay will work to his advantage.
"Actually I think it was a blessing in disguise," he said. "God is the best planner of everybody. We think that we have plans, but apparently he plans better than us.
"I took training camp very seriously from November all the way up until now. I think the extra preparation is the icing on the cake.
"Mentally and physically, I give myself an A-plus. I feel very calm, very at ease, very comfortable in this environment. Everything seems to be working out the way that it should work out. We ready for it."
This could be the last chance for 35-year-old Judah to prove he is still at the elite level after a highly-decorated pro career that has seen him become a world champion on four separate occasions.
He has remained in the mix despite losing in five rounds to Amir Khan last year but an eighth career defeat would be very difficult to come back from.
