Jorge "Niño de Oro" Linares, World Boxing Council Diamond champion, will be clashing with Filipino Mercito Gesta, on January 27th  at the Inglewood Forum in Los Angeles, USA.

The Venezuelan fighter starts the year with the goal of conquering the American market, but also, being recognized as the best fighter on the lightweight division.

Linares (43-3-0, 27 KOs) has got victories since 2012, when he defeated Mexican Hector Velasquez on points. That streak led him to conquer the WBC vacant lightweight belt by knocking out Mexican Javier Prieto, in four rounds in Tokyo, Japan.

Later, he successfully defended the belt twice by beating English Kevin Mitchell and Aztec Ivan Cano.

Then, he suffered an injury on one of his hands not being able to make his mandatory until receiving medical instructions.

British Anthony Crolla became his rival on September 24, 2016 and with an amazing performance he managed to defeat him on what was an amazing duel.

In March of last year, he had a rematch with Crolla and despite the efforts of the local fighter, Linares prooved why he was the champ.

Then, on September 23, 2017, he faced another Englishman, Luke Campbell, but in California, getting a split decision victory.

Now, the WBC Diamond champion, will start 2018 with an attractive combat against the dangerous Filipino Mercito Gesta, a fighter who has a record of 31 wins, one loss, two draws, and 17 knockouts.

In case Linares gets the victory, we can start thinking in one of the most expected clashes of the last years between him and Mikey Garcia.
