Vasyl “Hi-Tech” Lomachenko (10-1, 8KO’s) weighed in at 134.6lbs and champion Jorge “El Nino de Oro” Linares (44-3, 27KO’s) weighed in at 134.6lbs, ahead of their WBA lightweight title bout at Madison Square Garden in New York on Saturday night.

 

“The last two opponents I faced were southpaws and I have had Vasyl Lomachenko on my radar – I have been preparing for him,” said Linares, who firmly believes that he is going to upset the odds at The Garden.

 

Linares is also expecting a longer fight to play out and perhaps his game plan is to ramp up as the rounds go by, “The fight is going to get more intense as the rounds go by. He is an elite fighter and an elite amateur fighter but he is still learning as a professional.”

 

The fight will be broadcast live on the ESPN sports network at 8pm eastern standard time.
