Linares: Stoppage Was Premature, I Want a Rematch!

By Hilmar Rojas

Former two division world champion Jorge "Golden Boy" Linares required several stitches on his face to close up the cuts that he suffered during Saturday's fight with Antonio DeMarco at Staples Center in Los Angeles. DeMarco stopped Linares at 2:32 of the eleventh, after referee Raul Caiz Sr. stopped the fight.

"I think that the referee was wrong, I still don't understand why he stopped the fight. He says it was the cuts and the blood, but they occurred several rounds back and never once was I asked to cleanse my face. There were moments where I was blind because of the amount of blood on my face, and I was forced to use my glove to clean it off and that often opens up a cut even more," Linares said to BoxingScene.com.

"DeMarco knows that he did not win....he just had a stroke of luck. I was never going to fall and that's why I started to exchange. I felt very well physically and we were ready to fight for fifteen rounds. He couldn't put me down and he knew it."

Linares' co-promoter, Golden Boy Promotions, will pursue an immediate rematch.

He is right, his face wasn't even busted up because he was picking off the punches. He was only bloody not swollen.

[quote=cotto#1p4p]Linares was even slipping a punch when the ref stopped the fight. He was getting tagged but like some have stated, he wasn't out on his feet. If he was going to lose they should've let him GTFO and go "out" on his terms. It wasn't like he was taking a savage, one sided beatin...

The fight wasn´t stopped because Linares was being hit too much in the last flurry, it was stopped because prior to that he was taking too much punishment and responding bad to it. He stepping back that way and standing there on survival mode gave the ref the excuse he was waiting for.
