Danny Garcia’s opportunity at an immediate fight with welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. ended after Spence sustained injuries in an auto accident in October. Nonetheless, Garcia salvaged his early 2020 fight date originally planned for Spence.
A former welterweight and super-lightweight champion, Garcia (35-2, 21 KOs) will fight Ukraine’s Ivan Redkach (23-4-1, 18 KOs) Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
“We picked Redkach because he’s dangerous and we knew he’d be tough,” Garcia said. “Redkach makes a lot of sense because he’s a southpaw and that would have me ready for Errol Spence Jr. or Manny Pacquiao.”
