Jorge (El Nino de Oro Golden Boy) Linares vs Vasyl (Hi-Tech) Lomachenko 

This Saturday night Maddison Square gardens will play host to more fireworks than November the 5th at the Sydney bridge. The monstrous face-off between Jorge Linares and Vasyl Lomachenko.

Both fighters at the top of their game. Linares is slick and Glides around the ring this combined with his never say die attitude makes him a warrior of his craft. Jorge has a wealth of experience in the ring, 292 professional round to be precise. He will need to rely on everything he has learnt along the way, to face up to possibly his toughest challenge to date.

Lomachenko boasts arguably the most impressive amateur pedigree in boxing history. 396 amateur fights losing only once. Known for his punch that will shake you to your boots and extravagant combinations, Vasyl will lay it on the line in the name of entertainment. A two-weight world champion after 11 professional bouts is clearly very impressive. Winning the featherweight and Super featherweight title clearly isn’t enough as he makes the step up to lightweight to take down the raining champ.

Linares vs Lomachenko

Linares made his name in the UK when he, on two separate occasions, dealt with the best that Anthony (Million Dollar) Crolla had to offer, backing up the noise with a points victory against Luke Campbell in his next fight.

Lomachenko does not possess the same hit list and Linares will certainly be his toughest fight to date, many feel he is up to the task.

Preview & Prediction

Writers Prediction

This may be the toughest fight to predict of the year. My pick is going to be Lomachenko to win on points, his combo punches will wow the crowd and the judges but Linares is evasive and has the heart of a lion, and in my opinion, this will carry him to the final bell.
