Jorge Linares and Anthony Crolla meet today on Showtime and Sky Sports.
Today at 3 pm ET on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom, live coverage will begin for the card headlined by Jorge Linares vs Anthony Crolla, a rematch from last year and for Linares’ WBA “world” lightweight title.
BLH will pick up live coverage at 6:30 pm ET for the main event, which airs live on Showtime in the United States.
Linares (41-3, 27 KO) outpointed Crolla (31-5-3, 13 KO) in September, the last fight for either man, to take the title belt, and will be the favorite once again, though he’s fighting on hostile ground in Manchester once again, as well. Last time out, there was some mild criticism of the scoring, which went to the right man but it was felt by some that two of the three cards were a little closer than they should have been.
What should be expected, though, is that Crolla will give a great effort, and Linares, who has lost to fighters on this level before, cannot afford to overlook him.
