At their ongoing convention in Baku, the World Boxing Council has ordered a mandatory fight between WBC lightweight champion Mikey Garcia (37-0, 30 KOs) and WBC Diamond lightweight champion Jorge Linares (43-3, 27 KOs).

In his last fight, Garcia moved up to the junior welterweight in July to win a dominating twelve round decision over former four division champion Adrien Broner.

Linares was in action last month, when he won a twelve round split decision over Olympic gold medal winner Luke Campbell.
