Before his weekend bout at Barclays, Zab Judah took in a Mets game

Just days before his headline fight at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Zab Judah took a break from training to catch the Mets at Citi Field -- after all, Matt Harvey was starting.

Judah is well aware of his surroundings and boxing's history in New York City.

Muhammad Ali had classic battles at the old Yankee Stadium and Zab is eying a similar future for himself. "As I was standing here watching the guys practice, I was thinking about a ring in the middle of the field right there with seats all around it and seats going all the way up, I think I can pull it off," the former welterweight champ said.

As for his prediction of Saturday against Danny Garcia: "We're going to bring the crowns back here on New York soil."
