Thompson Vows To Punish Jorge Linares, Open His Cuts

By Alfredo Jaime Gomez, notifight.com

Quintana's Sergio "Yeyo" Thompson has a very tough battle in store when he faces experienced Venezuelan Jorge Linares in a WBC lightweight eliminator on the 31st of March in Cancun. Promoter Pepe Gomez will stage the show in a partnership with Golden Boy Promotions.

Thompson (25-2, 23 KOs) watched the last fight involving Linares (31-2, 20 KOs), where the Venezuelan star was stopped in eleven rounds by Antonio DeMarco. In that loss, Linares suffered several bad cuts which left his face in a bloody mask.

While Linares is trained by the legendary Freddie Roach, Thompson has promised a night of pain and punbishment.

"I'll be in great shape and like a true Mexican warrior I'm willing to die [in the ring]. Not only will I punish Jorge's eyebrows, but I will also throw a lot of my hooks to the liver. I don't want to disappoint my family and everyone who believes in me. Linares is dangerous because of his boxing ability, but I will always be on top of him and I'll stay on the inside. I will show that I can be king of the world," Thompson said.

Linares has good skills. He's fast, has good technique and good power. He was dominating DeMarco but I think his preparation wasn't good enough and Freddy Roach should have told him to stay away from DeMarco during the last couple…

Hopefully after this fight Linares can get the rematch with DeMarco.

I am really hoping Linares can bounce back. The kid has real skills and heart - I think his downfall is he is just plain fragile.
