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.
