Review: 2014-12-30, disappointing fight between Jorge Linares and Javier Prieto: it gets two stars. The former Wbc featherweight and Wba super-Fw champion Jorge Linares entered this fight with a boxing record of 37-3-0 (24 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.20 lightweight in the world, he suffered his last defeat in 2012 when he faced Sergio Thompson (=Linares vs Thompson), since then he has won six consecutive bouts, the last one against Ira Terry.
His opponent, Javier Prieto, has a record of 24-7-2 (18 KOs=75%) and he entered as the No.34 in the same weight class; the last time he lost was in 2012, against Roberto Ortiz, after this bout he has collected eight victories and two draws (both against Ivan Cano, Prieto vs Cano 2). Linares vs Prieto is valid for the vacant WBC World lightweight title; undercard of Naoya Inoue vs Omar Narvaez. Watch the video and rate this fight!
