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.
