Angel Garcia plays many roles for his son Danny: father, trainer and, most importantly, best friend. The outspoken dad and his quiet-yet-confident son have been virtually inseparable since the undefeated rising star was born in a Philadelphia hospital with his umbilical cord wrapped around his neck. From that frightening beginning through Angel's inspirational triumph over Stage 4 throat cancer, the father-son duo has risen together to lay claim to the Unified Super Lightweight World Championship.
Tune in this Saturday, April 27, LIVE on SHOWTIME (9 p.m. ET/PT) to see if the Garcias can extend their unbeaten streak in hostile territory against former Two-Division World Champion and Brooklyn native Zab Judah at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
