Jorge Linares Would Love a Fight With Adrien Broner

By Ryan Burton

Former super featherweight champion Jorge Linares (32-3, 20KOs) recently spoke to BoxingScene.com about his future plans.  The Venezuelan is scheduled to return to the ring next month but doesn't know who he will be facing. 

"I don't know who my opponent is yet but I know I am supposed to be back on March 16th in Panama," Linares stated.

Linares dominated Antonio DeMarco throughout the majority of their October 2011 fight before being stopped by the Mexican in the 11th round.  DeMarco successfully defended the belt twice before losing it to Adrien Broner (25-0, 21KOs) this past November. Linares said that a rematch isn't at the top of his list of priorities.

"I wouldn't mind fighting DeMarco again but really unless he gets a title I am not that interested.  He isn't a champion anymore.  It would make more sense if he gets a title back," said Linares.

The 27-year-old is however interested in facing the undefeated, two division champion Broner. The two have sparred in the past and Linares thinks that an actual fight would be even better.

"Broner is a great fighter.  He is very strong.  I have sparred with him in the past and if a fight can be made with him I would love it. That would be a great fight.  I think the fans would enjoy it as well," Linares told BoxingScene.com
