At 31 and at the peak of his physical prime, former two-division champion Danny Garcia was hoping to close 2019 by taking his commercial value to the next level as a pay-per-view headliner.

Garcia (35-2, 21 KOs), who knocked out Adrian Granados in spectacular fashion on national television in April, was never quite able to capitalize on the momentum to get there, however. First, talks with Mikey Garcia for an August bout fell apart. Garcia then entered the ring following Errol Spence Jr.’s September unification win over Shawn Porter only to see their plans for a January bout disengage after Spence was charged with DUI in an automobile accident.

The new year has spawned a new strategy for Garcia to land a spring PPV date against either Spence or fellow welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao. To get there, Garcia is hoping to impress against another southpaw on Saturday when he faces Ivan Redkach (23-4-1, 18 KOs) in Brooklyn, New York (Showtime, 9 p.m. ET).
