I've heard some people try to make distinctions, but it's like splitting hairs, so insignificant I can't even remember what the difference was supposed to be.

As far as I'm concerned they're just slightly different words that describe the same thing.

lineal is the proper english term, linear actually doesnt make sense in the context meant.

lineal - descended in a direct line, derived from ancestors, belonging to one lineage

linear - mostly technical meanings: depending on sequential development, characterized by an emphasis on line

So lineal in the boxing contest is more apropriate.

In boxing it means the same thing so don't worry about it.

Just one of those silly mistakes that grow into fact over time, it is definitely lineal.

Another example is when footballers refer to their "favourite right/left foot" rather than "favoured left/right foot".
