According to BoxingScene.com, the expected fight between WBC lightweight champion (up to 61.2 kg), American Davin Haney (25-0-0, 15 KO), and Venezuelan ex-champion in three weight categories Jorge Linares (47-5- 0.29 KO) will take place May 29th.
The venue will be the Mandalay Bay Arena in Las Vegas.
At the moment, the show, according to the decree of the state of Nevada, can be visited by no more than half of the number of spectators for which the arena is designed, which in this case will be about 12 thousand people.
Haney made his second title defense in November, outboxing Cuban veteran Yuriorkis Gamboa (30-4-0, 18 KO). Linares last February knocked out unknown American Carlos Morales in the 4th round (19-5-4, 8 KO).
