Linares-Juarez Confirmed

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Golden Boy Promotions has closed the deal on a fight between former WBA/WBC world champion Jorge Linares and five-time title challenger Ricardo “Rocky” Juarez on July 31 in Las Vegas. The bout will be the co-feature underneath the rematch between Juan Manuel Marquez and Juan “Baby Bull” Diaz. Sources inform that the two contracts were signed by the boxers and the fight will be at a weight between the super featherweight and lightweight divisions. On March 27, Linares returned to the ring after losing the world title in 2009 and won a majority decision over Francisco Lorenzo.
