Looking forward to seeing Jorge move up. He does look more healthy, and should be able to put in work at 140.

Abner Cotto physically doesn't look ready for this fight. Linares will knock him out.

It's always a bit bizzare when fighters "Move up in weight" and in reality, fight guy from lower weight-class - in bigger weight-class. Whatever, good luck to Jorge.

Linares looks a lot healthier at 140. Can't wait for this!
