hoped Linares would've been on a better show...k9's bout is garbage...sorry this was the best Showtime could do...

Linares is too talented to not get back into title contention.

Certainly would help make the card somewhat of interest.

Several bits of good news popping up today. A few days ago things were starting to look grim.

Salas was polishing Gamboa's reckless style nicely till he was fired so let's see if he can work on Linares as well. Salas got a few good fighters in Linares and Jack Culcay. I think Yundale Evans is good too…
