Jorge Linares To Return on 10/6 in Northern California

By Ryan Maquiñana

Jorge Linares (31-3, 20KOs) will make his return on Oct. 6 in Northern California on Fox Sports, according to promoter Don Chargin, who said “the site is still up in the air.”

Chargin doubles as a consultant for Golden Boy, who co-promotes Linares with Japan’s Teiken Promotions.  A native of San Jose, Calif., the Hall of Fame promoter has returned to the region to co-promote shows with Golden Boy in San Francisco, Fairfield, and Woodland.

The co-feature is likely to include undefeated Japanese welterweight Yoshihiro Kamegai (21-0, 18 KOs) in his American television debut.

I want to see Linares again, he sure has massive skills, but Roach just wasn't the right trainer for him. I hope he looks a lot better now that he has gone back to his roots.
