    Yea his performance against Indongo was bad, but he was not as his best weight class either.

    I think he has gotten over the jaw issie now though, I don't really see a problem with this fight at all to be honest. If Burns loses and badly then he will have to drop down a level or call it a day, if he wins he puts himself right back into the mix.

    Burns isn’t winning...it’s a terrible fight because he’s a shadow of his former self.

    Linares has been knocked out 5 times and tasted the canvas on numerous occasions, not by KO artists either. This is winnable, obviously it's lose-able too, Linares has largely been a classy operator throughout his career so this is by no means an easy fight. Whilst Burns doesn't have KO power he can win this, I really hope he does and the two of them can then retire having had fantastic careers. Jorge will always be King Jorge and Ricky, well, he's a credit to the sport.
     
    KingKO, Smudge_ and Bridie mcmahon like this.

    Reports are saying Linares is fighting in Japan in September so Linares vs Burns is probably OFF.
