Golden Boy Promotions matchmaker Robert Diaz has confirmed to BoxingScene.com that a deal was finalized for Jorge Linares (34-3, 22KOs) to challenge Richar Abril (18-3-1, 8KOs) for the WBA lightweight championship on November 10th in Tokyo, Japan. Promoter Mr. Honda of Teiken Promotions, who co-promote Linares with Golden Boy, is staging the show.

Abril last fought in March, winning a twelve round decision over previously undefeated Sharif Bogere. Linares, a former world champion, has won three in a row since suffering back to back defeats to Antonio DeMarco and Sergio Thompson.

"We know this is going to be a tough fight because Abril has a difficult style, but I'm confident Linares can win. Linares learned from the mistakes that he made in his past fights and gained valuable experience to prepare him for a fight like this," Diaz told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=El Angel]That Thompson fight, reminded of Gatti's skin almost. Great comparison BTW :lol1: Who do you got winning this one, fellow Lomo?[/QUOTE] Linares by outworking imo. Abril is a VERY good boxer and utilizes the clinch well. I can see Linares feinting him into clinches and respon...

this is probably Linares last chance to make something of himself. Linares is seriously one of the most gifted fighters I've ever seen
