Devin Haney vs. Jorge Linares Fight Weights
Michelob ULTRA Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada 29/05/21
World Boxing Council lightweight champion Devin Haney will defend his crown against former champion Jorge Linares, on Saturday at the Michelob ULTRA Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Fresh Haney, 22, holds an undefeated record of 25-0-0 with 15 KOs. In his most recent fight, he defeated former world champion Yuriorkis Gamboa by unanimous decision.
Mature Jorge, who had a great training camp at the Teiken Boxing Gym, the most representative boxing gym in Japan since 1926, has not fought for more than a year, but after having tested positive for coronavirus, he is fully recovered and ready for this great commitment.
This Friday both warriors passed the official weigh-in. Haney logged 135 pounds, while Linares scaled at 134 pounds.
