Jorge Linares vs. Adrien Broner To Be Ordered By WBC

According to the World Boxing Council, they fully intend to order a final junior welterweight eliminator between former world champions Adrien Broner and Jorge Linares - provided they comply with the Code of Ethics, says the sanctioning body.

The will also order a semi-final eliminator between Viktor Postol and Mohamed Mimoune.

The WBC junior welterweight champion is Jose Ramirez, and he already has a mandatory challenger interim-champion Regis Prograis - who is currently involved in the World Boxing Super Series tournament at 140-pounds.

Last month, Linares (45-4, 28 KOs) made his junior welterweight debut with a third round knockout of Abner Cotto. It was his first bout since getting stopped by Vasyl Lomachenko at lightweight in May.

Broner (33-3-1, 24 KOs), a former world champion at 130, 135, 140 and 147, fought to a twelve round majority draw with Jessie Vargas, at a catch-weight of 144-pounds, in April.

In other orders, the WBC will sanction a semi-final eliminator between Javier Fortuna and Zaur Abdulaev - with the winner falling in line for a crack at lightweight champion Mikey Garcia.

Garcia, who also owns the IBF title and is making a mandatory against Richard Commey, already has WBC mandatory challenger in the form of Luke Campbell.

Because WBC super bantamweight champion Rey Vargas underwent shoulder surgery and developed pneumonia, needing additional recovery time, the sanctioning body approved a November 12th final eliminator between Tomoki Kamada and Cesar Juarez in Tokyo.

WBC flyweight champion Cristofer "Latigo" Rosales will fight the winner of a final eliminator between Lee Selby and Julio Cesar Martinez.

WBC junior flyweight champion Ken Shiro, who stopped Mikan Melindo on Sunday, will face the winner of the final eliminator between Jonathan Taconing and Hirotoshi Kyoguchi.

WBC minimumweight champion Wanheng Menayothin, who has an undefeated record of 51-0, has been approved for a voluntary defense. He will then face the winner of a Simphiwe Knonco vs. Tsubasa Koura final eliminator.

Linares will light Broner up. Broner just shells up and doesn't throw any punches. How can you win like that against good fighters.
