Linares-Solis showdown?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Sources report that Golden Boy Promotions is trying to line up a clash between former two-division world champion Jorge Linares and reigning WBA interim super featherweight titleholder Jorge “Coloradito” Solís. Zanfer Promotions of Mexico represents Solis, who won a unanimous decision over Mario Santiago in his first defense last Saturday in Aguascaliente, Mexico. Linares is coming off a unanimous decision over Francisco Lorenzo in La Guaira, Venezuela on March 27, his comeback fight after losing his full WBA 130lb title by knockout in October 2009 to Juan Carlos Salgado, who subsequently was dethroned by Takashi Uchiyama.
