A lightweight fight between former two-time World Champion Jorge “Niño de Oro” Linares (35-3, 23 KOs) and exciting Japanese contender Nihito Arakawa (24-3-1, 16 KOs) that was originally scheduled to be a “freeview” bout leading into Saturday’s “Canelo vs. Angulo” pay-per-view event, will now open the PPV portion of the telecast. The change was made after an injury to Omar Figueroa forced the cancellation of his WBC lightweight world championship defense against Canelo’s brother Ricardo Alvarez, who will remain on the card and meet Sergio “Yeyo” Thompson (28-3, 26 KOs) on the non-televised portion of Saturday’s card at MGM Grand.
