According to Canelo Promotions, unbeaten WBC lightweight champion Omar Figueroa has withdrawn from this coming Saturday's fight with Ricardo Alvarez due to a hand injury. Figueroa was scheduled to face Alvarez on the Saul Alvarez-Alfredo Angulo Showtime Pay-Per-View undercard from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Figueroa has been suffering from a left hand injury since last July's win over Nihito Arakawa. He once again injured the hand in camp a few days and felt there was no way he could move forward with the match.

With Figueroa out, former two-division champion Jorge Linares (35-3, 23 KOs) will get a chance to shine, ironically against Arakawa (24-3-1, 16 KOs). The fight was going to take place as part of the non-PPV telecast, but now it moves up as part of the main card.

If Lineres boxes instead of brawling he should win this fight by decision.

Good fight, I like both guys but I think Linares will show his superiority.

Does anyone think this might be bcuz he couldn't make the 135 weight limit? Pull out of the fight instead of losing the belt at the scales
