Two-division world champion Danny Garcia returns from a 19-month layoff on Saturday. And will do it in a new weight class as he makes his junior middleweight debut against Jose Benavidez Jr. from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Garcia, a former unified junior welterweight champion and former WBC welterweight titlist, last fought in December when he lost a wide decision to current three-belt 147-pound belt holder Errol Spence Jr. Now, Garcia looks to a new division and fresh set of opponents. That starts on Saturday with the brother of the former two-time WBC super middleweight champion David Benavidez.

Benavidez is a former welterweight title challenger, losing to WBO titlist Terence Crawford by 12th-round TKO. He's only fought since then, going to a majority draw with Francisco Emanuel Torres in his 154-pound debut. 

For Garcia, Benavidez is supposed to be nothing more than a speed bump towards getting a crack at championship gold. Can Benavidez spoil the plans?
