Linares VS Campbell fight is an upcoming bout for the WBA lightweight championship. The current WBA lightweight champion Jorge Linares is all set to make his mandatory title defense against a worthy challenger Luke Campbell who is from UK. Linares has been quite ruthless with the British Boxers in the recent years as he has beaten Anthony Crolla twice and stopped Kevin Mitchell in the 10th round in 2015 and left him with a swollen eye.
Having a stellar record of 42-3-27 KOs, the 32-year-old Linares has been world champion in three different weight classes and is still going strong by winning his last 11 fights in a row and now all set to defend his title against Luke Campbell.
Luke Campbell, on the other hand, has a quite decent record of 17-1-14 KOs and is a 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist. He too is on a five-fight winning streak and is all set to face Jorge Linares on September 23rd, Saturday at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
