Junior middleweight contender Jose Benavidez Jr. has received another chance to pull off a major victory.
On July 30 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Benavidez will collide with former two division world champion Danny Garcia.
Garcia, who is making his debut at 154-pounds, is fighting for the first time since losing a one-sided decision to unified welterweight champion Errol Spence in December of 2020.
Benavidez saw action on November 13 of 2021, when he fought for the first time since suffering a knockout loss to welterweight champion Terence Crawford in October 2018.
He was unable to get the result he wanted, as the bout with Francisco Emanuel Torres ended in a draw.
A win against Garcia, in a Showtime televised main event, would put Benavidez's name right back in mix for big things.
"Words can't even explain how happy I am for this fight. It's going to be a war," Benavidez said to Arizona Central. "He (Garcia) stands there, he bangs. I love to bang. The previous guy I fought just kept running and running and I was focused on trying to take him out, and it didn't happen. I looked bad. I'm not going to lie or make excuses. I tried to do too much and I didn't do enough.
"The winner of this fight is going to go back up on the map. It's going to be fight of the year, 100 percent."
Garcia holds a tremendous edge in experience with fights against Spence, Keith Thurman, Shawn Porter, Amir Khan, Erik Morales, Paulie Malignaggi and several others.
The fight is do or die for Garcia, who would likely face the scenario of retirement if he suffers a loss.
