Premier Boxing Champions: Danny Garcia v. Ivan Redkach

Premier Boxing Champions returns to Brooklyn when Danny Garcia faces Ivan Redkach on January 25.

Two-division world champion Danny “Swift’’ García returns to the ring to take on hard-hitting slugger Ivan “El Terrible’’ Redkach in a 12-round WBC welterweight title eliminator Saturday, January 25 at Barclays Center.

Garcia (35-2, 21 KOs), 31, of Philadelphia, has been out of the ring since his seventh-round knockout of Adrian Granados on April 20. He rebounded from a unanimous decision loss to Shawn Porter for a vacant welterweight world title in September 2018 at Barclays Center. Garcia will be fighting at Barclays Center for the eighth time since it opened in 2012.

Garcia was initially slated to challenge welterweight world titleholder Errol Spence Jr. in the main event of a Fox pay-per-view card on Jan. 25, but those plans were called off when Spence was injured in a car accident in early October and charged with driving under the influence. His return remains up in the air.

After Spence-Garcia was out of the picture, there was talk that Garcia could be the next opponent for welterweight world titlist Manny Pacquiao. Sean Gibbons, the president of Pacquiao's MP Promotions, told ESPN at the time that Pacquiao likely would next fight in the first third of 2020 and identified Garcia and former four-division titlist Mikey Garcia (no relation) as the top candidates to get the bout.

Redkach (23-4-1, 18 KOs), a 33-year-old southpaw from Ukraine who fights out of Los Angeles, was once a top prospect but failed to live up to the billing.

At one point between 2016 and 2017 he went 1-3, including a fourth-round knockout loss to John Molina Jr. But since that defeat, Redkach has won three fights in a row, including a very impressive sixth-round knockout of former junior welterweight and welterweight titleholder Devon Alexander on June 1 in San Jacinto, California.
