As you know on Saturday both fighters took care of business and handled their opponents my question for the board is who do you want to see them fight next?

Maybe each other if golden boy takes the risk of putting in garcia with zab? I am Not sure if garcia has a mandatory and I know zab is slated to fight the khan/peterson winner but that plan may change if Khan wins and moves up to 147 but either way a lot of possibilities with these two at 140

Wouldnt mind seeing Zab fight Alexander. I actually think he'd give him all he could handle. (no homo)

At 140 why not maidana for garcia to "unify titles" and zab too to win the "regular" wba belt for 140..others for garcia Ajose Olusegun, Mike Alvarado or even Lucas Mathsysse judah peterson if he beats khan again.
Cshel86
I believe Garcia is gonna end up fighting Ajose next...since he's a mandatory. Oh, who am I kidding? It's the WBC and Golden Boy, duh Cshel, could you possibly be this dumb?

No way in hell Garcia gets put in their with Judah, since Zab is one of those "Ya never know" fighters, and he looked waaay too slick against Paris. Maidana will simply beat the shit out of Garcia and really have him crying after the fight and contemplating retirement by the following Monday morning.

I think that they will take it easy with Garcia, since he's a new champ. Besides, Morales made him look confused and hesitant on more than a few occasions, so hopefully Oscar and Richard took notes.

Matthysse definitely beats the shit out of Garcia, though I wouldn't mind seeing that fight. If they can work something out with Guerrero, then that would be a good fight Garcia in the fall.

As for Judah...I think everyone is pumping their brakes with him, in regards to putting their fighters in with him.
Hittman25
Or now that i think about it why not them selves

Garcia should fight Olusegun next. He's been the mandatory for three years.

Re. Zab, no preferences. I'm fine with the winner of Khan/Peterson etc. I'm pretty sure they'll pick a good match up for him. The limelight's back on Zab and I'd be shocked if Main Events doesn't take advantage and get him a big money match.

I'm not picking anyone until the match ups are confirmed.

Zab and Brandon Rios. Rios can make 140 easy. It will be the big name Rios is looking for and if Zab wins against Rios then the skies is the limit. Garcia I am not sold on. He could fight Maidana. That could be an interesting match. Or Zab can fight Bradley after his fight with Pac.

Zab vs. Rios would be good, but I'd prefer to see him fight one of the guys that are already at 140.

exactly I think golden boy learned from matching lucas matthysse with zab, even though that fight was close I just do not see Richard risking Garcia at this point when he really isnt even a name yet.

I have heard a lot of people wanting to see rios/zab I think it be exciting but a bad matchup for zab due to Rios non stop pressure.

I'd love to see Judah vs. Rios, but I think at this point, Zab is looking to fight for a title. I also wouldn't mind seeing Judah fight Marquez at some point. If Khan beats Peterson, obviously he'll move up to 147 and vacate the belts. Which would clear Zab to fight for the vacant title against whoever the #2 contender in the IBF is. A matchup between him and Garcia really intrigues me but I wonder if Golden Boy would put Garcia in there with Zab, especially seeing how Zab fought Paris and Garcia struggled early against Morales. That might be too much for him too soon. But Zab in against any of the belt holders seems interesting at this point. As for Garcia, his madatory is Olusegun, if he wins that I would love to see him fight Maidana

Zab vs Rios or JMM would be good but it'll never happen since both are with Top Rank. I'd like to see Zab vs Maidana. Garcia needs to improve so they'll probably baby him for now.

Absolutely! If he had a tough fight like that against Morales, and walked away with a bad cut and a broken nose, then yes, they'll baby him for the time being. Im assuming that Golden Boy is trying to keep those WBC belts as long as they can.

I know Arum likes matching his fighters against one another but I think the Marquez fight will come off...possibly. And I say that because I don't think he has a long term contract with Marquez, I think he just has options on him. And that's why we're seeing the fight next month which is supposed to lead to him and Rios in July. After those options are finished, who knows what Marquez will do

well zab has said he has a good relationship with Arum. I mean he ended the cold war between arum and Don King when they made mayweather/judah he also worked with top rank when he fought cotto.
so maybe if zab gets the IBF strap again arum will put marquez or rios in with him.

As a zab fan I would like to see him win his next fight then get another big fight and walk away before the speed and power erodes and he starts taking some beatings.

Great points! How do you think he fairs against Bam Bam?

The more I think about it, the more I wanna see Judah vs Alexander. To be honest, if I had to put my money on it, I hate to say it because he's such a disappointment at times, but I think I'd put my money on Zab.

I was hoping for this fight back in 2010 after the Urango fight, but Devon ended up hitting a speed bump named Kotelnik. I believe Zab will move up to WW for this fight or a Peterson fight...or hell, any fight with nice dollars signs attached to it.
