The World Boxing Association (WBA) effort to grow Latino boxing continues to rise. Thanks to the management of the oldest sanctioning body in the world, three-time world champion Jorge Linares will deliver a closed-door clinic at the MMA Colombia gymnasium in Medellin this coming Monday, September 23rd.
The opportunity to bring different figures into world boxing is a great benefit for Colombian boxing. The activity will be aimed at different fighters from various disciplines that are dedicated to Mixed Martial Arts and who want to improve in the boxing field.
However, boxing technique is not the only thing that attendees can learn. Linares will provide learning from the emotional point of view with his experiences inside and outside the ring to help young fighters to forge the necessary character in order to become high-level athletes.
The clinic is the second in a row after a couple weeks ago world-class coach Jorge Zerpa also shared with the boys of MMA Colombia. Linares, a native of Barinas in Venezuela, was champion of the featherweight, super featherweight, and lightweight classes. He has faced several of the best in the world, including Vasyl Lomachenko.
