Mikey Garcia vs. Jorge Linares Ordered By The WBC

At their ongoing convention in Baku, the World Boxing Council has ordered a mandatory fight between WBC lightweight champion Mikey Garcia (37-0, 30 KOs) and WBC Diamond lightweight champion Jorge Linares (43-3, 27 KOs).

In his last fight, Garcia moved up to the junior welterweight in July to win a dominating twelve round decision over former four division champion Adrien Broner.

Linares was in action last month, when he won a twelve round split decision over Olympic gold medal winner Luke Campbell.

In other World Boxing Council decisions earlier today, WBC minimumweight champion Wanheng Menayothin  makes a voluntary defence in November.  The number one contender remains Leroy Estrada.

In the light flyweight division, champion Ken Shiro fights number one contender Pedro Guevara. The winner of that must then face Ganigan Lopez.

In the flyweight division champion Daigo Higa fights Thomas Masson in a voluntary defence on October 22nd.

In the super bantamweight division, champion Rey Vargas fights mandatory contender Julio Ceja, who won the final eliminator.  Diego De La Hoya ranked at number two and Hugo Ruiz, who's number three will fight a final eliminator. 

At welterweight champion Keith Thurman who was injured, returns to the ring in January, Mandatory contender Shawn Porter fights Adrian Granados on November 4th for the silver title. 

At super middleweight champion David Benavidez, aged just twenty in support of the Super Series, will fight  a rematch  against Ronald Gavril.  This Saturday number ranked Avni Yildirim fights number four Chris Eubank.

At light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson fights a mandatory against number contender Eleider Alvarez in December.

At cruiserweight champion Mairis Briedis is in the Super Series. So it's whoever emerges as the winner.

In the bantamweight division the WBC Clean Boxing Program still has to rule on the findings on a positive test for champion Luis Nery.  Number two Emmanuel Rodríguez will fight a final eliminator against third ranked Petch Sor Chitpattana.

Mikey is better, but Linares is good enough to have a chance. Excellent fighters. I expect Mikey to win, but expect a nice competitive fight. I am still unsure of Mikeys chin

[QUOTE=Heromaker;18115113][B]After watching Garcia's incredible timing against a must faster Broner[/B] I see Garcia winning. Great fight, I'll be watching. I don't know why anyone wants to watch Broner though. He looked terrible against Garcia and Just hasn't looked special since…
