'Negated' isn't the right word, as 'negated' is a specific term that applies to something else.

If the defending monster is destroyed or removed from the field before the Damage Step, then no, the attack is not negated. What happens is a 'replay' occurs. The attacking monster can pick another attack target, or if he really wants to, just choose to forfeit his attack altogether.

Replays can occur in other ways, basically if a potential attack target appears or disappears after an attack is declared but before the damage step, then a replay occurs.

Let's say you have "Sakuretsu Armor" face-down on your field and your opponent attacks you with their monster.When your opponent declares or states they are attacking with a specific monster, whether they are attack a monster you control or your Life Points directly, you may activate "Sakuretsu Armor". "Sakuretsu Armor" destroys the attacking monster and the attack is over.There are a few important things to note when using this card:If the opponent chains "SA" with a Spell/ Trap that flips the attacking monster face-down, when the chain resolves the monster will not be destroyed.If the opponent chains "SA" with a Spell/ Trap that changes the battle position of the attacking monster but it is till face-up, when the chain resolves the monster will still be destroyed. verified with yu-gi-oh wiki which has the tcg rules on that are the official rules.
