  1. Total domination in a very entertaining fight involving two boxers with very quick hands. In just a couple of rounds Linares was able to figure out the best way to outclass Gesta which he did quite easy by means of his superb boxing skills and excellent punch combinations. He will be a good rival for Garcia but I doubt a bit that he is a match for Loma who is in my opinion the best one in this category. I

  2. Best fight of that card. Should have been the main event.
    Least Gesta didnt take a dive.

    I personally think Linares Vs Lomachenko would be a good fight.
    Not saying I would bet on him but he is very proficient and has quick hands.

    Since Garcia is chasing money that is a fight that wont
    happen. If Berchelt wont fight Lomachenko, then it could be possible for Linares.
