The Crolla vs Linares 2 live stream video of the undercard is underway – as fight fans get ready for the lightweight world title match up later on.
Tonight’s main event has all the ingredients to be a classic. Jorge Linares puts his WBA lightweight belt on the line against Manchester’s Anthony Crolla.
It was a belt that Linares won off Crolla a little over six months ago when he won a unanimous decision against the Mancunian in his backyard.
Crolla’s handlers have been able to get Linares back over to Manchester again tonight and by all accounts, Crolla is in the shape of his life.
His trainer Joe Gallagher mentioned mid-week that preparation has been sport on.
Vegas based Linares will start as the favorite in the fight though, and rightly so. A tremendous technical operator and fighter to boot.
A classy boxer who can go through the gears in the blink of an eye.
Blistering combinations and buckets of skill make him a formidable opponent for anyone and perhaps even a fringe top 10 pound for pound contender at this stage as a three-weight world champion.
He has already proven that travelling to Manchester to Crolla’s back garden does not intimidate him. It will be up to Crolla to convince him otherwise tonight.
Before that though, the folks at Sky Sports Boxing’s Facebook page have began the Crolla vs Linares 2 live stream of the undercard fights.
