Linares Hopes Next Fight Leads To Figueroa Clash

By Hisao Adachi

Former champion Jorge Linares (35-3, 23KOs) is hoping to eventually face WBC interim-champion Omar Figueroa (22-0-1, 17KOs) later in the year.

Up first for Linares, is a fight with Japan's Nihito Arakawa (24-3, 16KOs), who went to war for twelve rounds with Figueroa last year. The fight will take place on March 8th as part of the Saul Alvarez-Alfredo Angulo undercard at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

On the same card, talks are ongoing for Figueroa to face Canelo's brother Ricardo Alvarez (23-2-3, 14KOs).

If they both pull through on the show, Linares would like to land Figueroa in the following match.

Linares is pretty used up but he will still be a test for Figueroa.

[quote=Young Money] I still like watching Linares. He should of never gone with Roach and instead hired someone like Nacho Berestein. [/quote] If he's still with Salas, Salas can do some good things for him. If Linares' face wasn't made…
