JORGE LINARES vs. DEVIN HANEY
This Saturday night in Las Vegas, Jorge Linares will challenge WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney in one of the most anticipated matches of recent months.
Haney, who is coming off a decision win over Cuban Yuriorkis Gamboa, is looking to add another notable name to his record.
Linares (47-5, 29 KOs) has been out of the ring since February of last year, when he knocked out Carlos Morales in four rounds.
The multiple champion has won two fights in a row since a surprise loss to Mexican Pablo César Cano.
Last year, Linares was scheduled to face Javier Fortuna, but the fight fell apart when Jorge contracted COVID-19.
“I was infected with the coronavirus, but now I am 100% recovered. I continued in the gym. I’ve never stopped, I’ve always been busy. It is impressive how many sparring sessions
“I have already done without being able to fight. But I would not call this time out of the ring inactivity, ” Linares said in an interview with journalist Jorge Ebro.
“I have a lot of experience and now I feel that the teacher is going to teach the student. This is a great fight and I feel very positive about this tremendous opportunity.
“He will not be an easy rival, because nobody is. Haney’s style is clean, pretty. I don’t know if he is going to be a warrior with me, but I hope we have a very good fight, obviously there will only be one winner and it will be me”.
