Vasyl Lomachenko v Jorge Linares



Apr 13, 2018
Vasyl Lomachenko (10-1, 8 KO) vs WBA titleholder Jorge Linares (44-3, 27 KO)

Lomo is being tagged as the greatest boxer of this era, nicknamed the "Hi-Tech" for his crazy footwork and movement.

This could be fight of the year and Linares is a world class fighter that is fun to watch but has been written off because he had a couple of bad losses and his chin was questionable. And of course he is fighting Lomo which has made other world class boxers look like amateurs.

I am going to say this is going to be a dog fight, decision going to Lomachenko. But I must also let you know that I said the same thing about him fighting Rigondeaux, Rig quit after the 6 round on the stool in what no one can argue was going to be a beat down with Lomo dominating the fight early.

So how does everyone see this going? Finish, Decision, and Round you think it ends?

How do these two stack up?

Lomachenko: 30 years old | 5’7” | 65" reach | southpaw stance
Linares: 32 years old | 5’8" | 69" reach | orthodox stance
