    Jorge Linares

    Hopefully its on May 12 because April 28 would be competing against Danny Jacobs on HBO. Makes sense to be on ESPN since Golden Boy has a contract with them as well.


    Arum, Lomacheko, Klimas, Honda, Linares, and Golden Boy are all interested

    BoxingScene has already reported this. Stop pushing that fat friend of yours (Fat Dan). The only inside scoop he has is at Baskin-Robbins.

    A better fight for Loma than who he has been fighting but I still think he wins pretty clearly.

    Let them counter-program Hearn. Would be enticing for the both of them (TR and GB). I bet that's the plan, or they dropped the ball.

    espn also reported, fight seems like its close
    i think arum thinks lomachenko, at this pt in his career will dominate everyone incl. linares and garcia
    thats why its not so hard to make deals

    could be his best opponent to date
    but still don't think linares brings anything new, that lomachenko hasn't seen before

    I think that this is a closer fight than people think. Obivously Linares has some question marks in his performance when I look at his past, and obviously Lomachenko is at the very peak of his game and he is just plain destructive. The tidal wave of money probably comes in for Lomachenko, but this is a legit fight and I really think that it will be competitive.

    That's a good fight and it helps build the Mikey fight

    If i comment on this thread will you be ok? I dont want to hurt your feelings anymore tonight, im not a bully.

    anyways this is a good fight.

    I see loma being more skilled and should have a fairly easy victory but linares size might come to play a little bit but he doesnt usually fight using his weight all that much...so easy fight for loma

    In before Seano finds a way to shit on this fight and shit and Loma and state his opinion in a way that means if the outcome is anything besides a first round stoppage it must mean Loma is a huge pile of shit!

    You dont question Loma’s power at 135?? Against Linares?

    I agree Linares style is talor made for Loma, but this is quite a leap for Loma’s first fight at 135

    Meh. Good enough fight. Linares is pretty inconsistent. Hard to imagine him putting it all together vs Lomachenko. I like this a lot more than the Rigondeaux fight though.

    Man, I have to say I can't recall ever getting so personally riled that someone didn't like my favorite fighters. Even at the peak of Floyd/Pac nonsense.

    Linares is probably the best fight out there other than Berchelt and Garcia (and they're not available). I'm of the opinion that Linares has mostly been feasting on mediocre fighters over the last little while at LW, but you can't deny that he has clearly separated himself as having the best resume at the weight right now.

    Linares will be a bit bigger than Lomachenko and he is quick and relatively sharp technically (although, his defensive shortcomings evident earlier in his career aren't exactly gone). That could cause some Lomachenko a few issues early, but I doubt it will be too significant. It probably won't be very competitive after round 5 or 6.

    Linares beats him by SD.

    If Linares can beat Campbell and Crolla I don’t see him having trouble with a midget like Lomachenko.

    Linares does have flaws, but he's a seasonned guy with decent output and accuracy and he's been a lightweight for years. For a first fight at 135 it's not the easy way to go. Very good fight. Loma via some hard fought JD.
