Linares-Juarez in Vegas?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The possibility exists that former WBA/WBC world champion Jorge “Niño de Oro” Linares could be fighting Ricardo “Rocky” Juárez on July 31 in Las Vegas. Linares and Juarez both fight under the banner of Golden Boy Promotions and have been offered the fight, which would be a ten-rounder at 132lbs (between the super featherweight and lightweight divisions). The winner could get a title shot next. The fight would be the co-feature underneath Juan Manuel Márquez vs Juan Díaz for the WBA/WBO lightweight world titles.
