    A lot of good fights announced lately. Gamboa probably stops him if he wasn't ruined in that Crawford fight (and I doubt he was).

    Should make for some moments of excitement. Both are vulnerable, and both can punch, but I think Gamboa has more class and finesse and should be able to out box Linares on his way to a stoppage sometime from the 7th or 8th round onwards.

    I like it! Two truly awesome offensive fighters with major defensive flaws and chin issues.

    I thought Gamboa was going back to 130, where I feel he can do better but I like this fight though

    Linares himself would have been better served sticking to be 130lbs years ago. But in terms of size and styles Linares is one of the more beatable guys in or around world level at this weight.

    honestly, I know Gamboa lost to Crawford, but he looked good, I think he might get a career revival, at least if he stays serious. He should go back to 130, I still want to see him settle matters with Uchi.

    Fun fight, I think Linares is getting stopped here. Too chinny and Gamboa is still pretty good even without his PEDs.

    I'm rather attached to both, but I'm happy for some sort of friendly wager.

    I think il area is technically better and he throws more combinations. I expect him to wear Gamboa down and stop him late, but it's a competitive fight where anything can happen. I'll watch for,sure.
