Danny Garcia has been forced to delay the defence of his WBC and WBA light-welterweight belts against Zab Judah.
The undefeated Garcia suffered a rib injury in training, and the bout, which had been due to take place on 9 February, will now take place on 27 April.
The fight card will remain at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Judah's hometown.
Garcia beat Mexico's Erik Morales in a unanimous 12-round decision last March to claim the WBC crown, then took the WBA title from Amir Khan with a fourth-round stoppage last July.
In November Garcia knocked out Morales in the fourth round in a rematch in the first boxing card at the new Brooklyn arena to keep both his titles and set up the Judah bout.
