Linares-Arakawa - CompuBox Historical Review
Jorge Linares more accurate (landed 44% of his power punches vs. Contreras, Rodela, Velazquez, Demarco), Arakawa busier, throwing 20% more than wgt. class avg. (vs. Figueroa, Estrada, Shimoda). Arakawa opponents landed 41% of their power punches, while Linares' opponents landed 29% of their power shots. Linares will need that jab to hold off Arakawa- 68% of his thrown punches are power shots and 89% of his landed punches are power shots.
Good win for Linares the bad thing about him he cuts like Rosado.Comment by Japanese Boxing on 03-08-2014
This is Arakawa's fight to lose imo. Linares is slow to react when under pressure. Arakawa doesn't have the same textbook skills but he is savvy enough and gritty enough to ensure a victory over 10.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (2)
