Jorge Linares Heading Back to Teiken Gym in Japan

By Ryan Maquiñana

Former two-weight beltholder Jorge Linares is scheduled to return to Tokyo in preparation of his next move.

“He’s going back to the Teiken Gym in Japan to get his life in order and see where he’s at in his career,” said WBA vice president Gilberto Jesus Mendoza.  “Jorge has been there before with [Teiken president Akihiko] Honda, and I wish him all the best.”

Linares had previously honed his craft at Teiken but in recent times had been training with Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood.  However, back-to-back stoppage losses to Antonio DeMarco and Sergio Thompson have landed him in a career crossroads.

Still not giving up on Linares but he should take a few months away from the sport.

Sounds like this will benefit him. He should take some significant amount of time off. Seems like he's not durable anymore, too bad because he had everything going for him.

linares is never going anywhere in boxing. if he wants to become the B side of a card he'll have a short career. he's not durable. gatekeeper/opponent types are durable. he's not suited for anything but star type matchmaking. and…
