Mares, Moreno, Linares Tripleheader Possible For April 21

By Rick Reeno

Richard Schaefer, CEO for Golden Boy Promotions, advised BoxingScene.com that an interesting tripleheader is possible for April 21st, on Showtime. Locations under consideration include Mexico City, Cancun, and the United States.

IBF bantamweight champion Abner Mares (23-0-1, 13KOs) is already confirmed for the Showtime date. Schaefer would like to add WBA bantamweight champion Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno (32-1-1, 11KOs), and former champion Jorge Linares (31-2, 2OKs).

Mares returns from a dominating twelve round unanimous decision over Joseph Agbeko last December. On that same card, which took place at Anaheim's Honda Center, Moreno made his American debut with a statement-making decision win over Vic Darchinyan.

Linares would return for the first time since last October's TKO loss to Antonio DeMarco. Linares-DeMarco stole the show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Although Linares was well ahead on the scorecards, he was unable to prevent a late charge from DeMarco. A rematch has been ordered by the WBC, but DeMarco has the option to make a voluntary defense before fulfilling that obligation.

"Abner Mares will be fighting on April the 21st. We sat down with his team, this week. We are looking at potential opponents. It could be part of a tripleheader, with Anselmo Moreno also on it, and Jorge Linares," Schaefer told BoxingScene.com.

I don't see anything wrong with showcase matchups in this particular case. Mares has had a grueling schedule lately, Moreno could use more exposure to hype a fight between the two, and Linares is coming off a tko loss.

Now thats a tripleheader to have all those three fighters on the same card. I like Mares since way back when he used to get train by Nacho I want to see him go up to 122 maybe that will…

I'm pretty sure Mares will fight Malinga, Moreno will face Morel and Linares will face Abril...that's not a bad fight card
