Arum called a possible date for the battle Lomachenko – Linares

Арум назвал возможные даты для боя Ломаченко – Линарес

Jorge Linares – Vasyl Lomachenko

According to the promoter, the talks will start soon.

The Vasyl Lomachenko’s promoter, Bob Arum, sees no obstacles to holding the match between Ukrainian and Jorge Linares, announcing soon the start of negotiations.

“Negotiations have not started yet because we need to be sure that Linares is fully healthy: in the last battle he received a small cut and a slight hand injury. It is foolish to start to negotiate on the basis of too optimistic forecasts about the physical state of the fighter

As soon as we receive a report on the health status of Linares, I’m going to talk to the chief promoter Akihiko Honda – it was he who first suggested that we fight against Linares. After talking with him we certainly will get in touch with Golden Boy.

The fight could take place on April 28 or may 12. Most likely it will be on may 12 so we were confident in the physical condition of Linares” – quoted by Arum to BoxingScene.
