Preceding the scrap between Bolton, England's Khan (27-3, 19 KO's) and Diaz (40-7-1, 29 KO's), of Coachella, Calif., SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING will feature a pair of world title fights that will be televised live on SHOWTIME (9 p.m. ET/PT) from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Undefeated WBO Middleweight World Champion Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin (28-0, 20 KO's), of New York, will defend against hard-hitting Fernando Guerrero (25-1, 19 KO's), of Salisbury, Md., and in the main event, unbeaten Unified Super Lightweight World Champion Danny "Swift" Garcia (25-0, 16 KO's) will risk his world title belts against former Four-Time and Two-Division World Champion Zab "Super" Judah (42-7, 29 KO's), of Brooklyn, N.Y.

Khan will be making his second consecutive appearance on SHOWTIME. Last Dec. 15, he captured the vacant WBC Silver Super Lightweight Championship with a dominant 10th-round TKO over previously undefeated Carlos Molina in Los Angeles.

Anthony Ogogo is a former Junior Olympic Champion, Junior World Champion and Commonwealth Games Silver Medalist. In London this past summer, Ogogo beat representatives from the Dominican Republic, Ukraine and Germany to win a Bronze Medal, thrilling his fans from throughout the United Kingdom. On April 27, the charismatic middleweight will begin his journey as a professional.
