I looked up some video on Youtube about Lineker and he is one tough little guy. Maybe Mike Dolce could help him loose weight or a team change would benefit him. He shows promise and with the right team could become a force at 125.

some people grow slowly into their mid 20's. I did, i was 5'7 when iwas 17 , then grew slowly to 6 foot by 25. However most people don't grow so late. A lot of males in my family had delayed growth spurts

I wish he would get a Dolce or somebody to help him with the cut. FlyW needs contenders. The division lacks depth as it is and Lineker is a blast to watch.

John is a future contender for the belt, I would hate to see him have to go up to 135 because I don't think he will be successful there. Due to that hes 5'2 and there are guys like George Roop, Johnny Bedford, who are 5'10 and 6'1. I love his fighting style he is very entertaining to watch, I hope weight issues don't come with into play with his future success at the Flyweight Division. I think he needs to leave his camp "Parana Vale Tudo." No disrespect to them and there fighters, but I think he would be more successful at a camp like Greg Jackson's or Black House. He would have guys that could help him with his Nutrition and ect to cut the weight and make it easier. Good luck to Lineker on Saturday should be a great fight as always.
