Linares and Campbell will fight for the WBA Lightweight title
Linares will defend his WBA title against Campbell on Saturday.

The World Boxing Association lightweight champion, Jorge Linares, will defend his title for the second time against Luke Campbell next September 23 in Los Angeles, to comply with the resolution issued by the WBA Championships Committee.

Linares won the lightweight title on September 24, 2016, when he defeated the British Anthony Crolla. Later in March this year he repeated the doses against the “Million Dollar” in the first defence of his title.  This will be the first mandatory title defence since he became champion.

Campbell managed his first title opportunity of his career in a elimination bout against Colombian Darleys Pérez, whom he defeated by TKO 9 on April 29. He was Commonwealth 135 lbs champion.

“The Golden Boy” record is 42-3, 27 KO’s, while Campbell’s 17-1, 14 KOs.
