Former champion Jorge Linares (32-3, 20KOs) will return on February 23rd in Detroit, according to Golden Boy Promotions matchmaker Robert Diaz. Linares was previously being announced to return on a March date in Panama.
The card is taking place at the Mosaic Theatre and Cornelius "K9" Bundrage (32-4, 19 Kos) will defend hs IBF junior middleweight title in the main event against Ishe Smith (24-5, 11 KOs). Showtime is televing the card.
"[Linares' return] will be in Detroit, Michigan, on February 23, but I still don't have an opponent," Diaz said.
Linares is now training in Las Vegas with Cuban trainer Ismael Salas.
