What time is Lomachenko vs Linares on later? A look at all the particulars ahead of a highly anticipated showdown between two of boxing’s most technically gifted fighters.

Vasyl Lomachenko is widely considered the best fighter in the sport today, regardless of weight division.

However an emphatic win tonight over Jorge Linares would see even his most skeptical critics have to concede that he is the best out there.

Surely.

Linares will have one or two things to say about that of course and looks to be in optimal condition for the biggest fight of his life.

He’s specifically worked on stamina and conditioning in the build-up to this weekend’s fight.

So, what time is Lomachenko vs Linares tonight?

The coverage is due to start for the event at 8pm local time ET (East coast) in New York tonight and will be shown live on ESPN and their new app ESPN plus.

Before the main event comes on Ireland’s Michael Conlan takes on Ibon Larrinaga in what will be his 7th pro fight and see his new partnership with trainer Adam Booth continue.

Tonight’s events will take place at Madison Square Garden and will see the new OTT format that ESPN and promoters Top Rank have created continue to try to gather momentum.

A few days after rival promoter Eddie Hearn announced his new billion dollar deal with his own OTT platform starting in US boxing in the near future.
