Linares: I Definitely Want To Fight Omar Figueroa
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

StubHub Center, Carson, California - In the opening bout on SHOWTIME EXTREME, former two-division world champion Jorge "Nio De Oro" Linares (37-3, 24 KOs) may have earned himself a shot at WBC 135-pound champ Figueroa with a second-round knockout over Ira Terry (26-12, 16 KOs), of Memphis, Tenn. After dominating the first round, Linares connected with a solid straight right hand that put Terry down on the seat of his pants. The referee didn't bother to count.

Linares, who won a WBC eliminator earlier this year, is now hoping to face Figueroa. The only issue right now is that Figueroa is seriously contemplating a jump in weight to 140-pounds. Figueroa fought on the same card, stopping mandatory challenger Daniel Estrada in the ninth round.

This was the kind of fight I didnt expect but that I wanted, Linares said. I was able to watch tapes of+ him extensively so I was well prepared. That was a good straight right hand I landed on him. Once I connected I knew it was over.

"I definitely want to fight [Figueroa]. Thats why I was here and took this fight. Im just waiting for my opportunity."

[QUOTE=jas]linares would outbox figueroa and survive the tough moments down the stretch when his face is a bloody mess having being cut walking through the ropes in the ring entrance[/QUOTE] looooooooool

[QUOTE=kidaguilar]Or he would get knocked out by Figueroa like he got knocked out in the first two rounds by Salgado and Thompson. Linares got a lot of skill but a weak chin. One big shot by Figueroa and he's done.[/QUOTE] Such a waste of talent that is Jorge Linares.

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK]Linares is a beautiful boxer. No homo.[/QUOTE] I agree. His combinations are damn near sexy.

Linares is mandatory, the Terry fight was just a keep busy one. Love watching Linares, blazing handspeed and beautiful combinations. A spectacular offensive fighter but a flawed defensive one. Reminds me of Khan but with the addition of having paper-like skin.

Beating a bum with 12 ****en losses get u a title shot!? Figueroa shouldn't even waste his time contemplating taking the fight
