Jorge Linares

Jorge Linares (born 22 August 1985) is a Venezuelan professional boxer. Linares compiled an 89-5 record as an amateur, winning several national junior championships in Venezuela. At the age of 17, Linares moved to Japan at the suggestion of his countryman, WBA president Gilberto Mendoza. Linares wanted to turn pro as soon as possible, and he would’ve had to wait until he turned 18 in Venezuela. As a pro, he has held multiple world championships in three weight classes, including the WBC featherweight title from 2007 to 2008; the WBA super featherweight title from 2008 to 2009; and the WBA, WBC and Ring magazine lightweight titles between 2014 and 2018.*
