WBA lightweight titleholder Jorge Linares is set to do battle with Luke Campbell tomorrow evening on HBO, live from The Forum in Los Angeles. And for the final promotional push of the event, they both held their final press conference which you can catch in full at the video above, courtesy of FightHub.
Linares (42-3, 27 KOs) is currently riding an eleven fight win streak since a little rough patch between late 2009 and early 2012 where he lost three of seven fights, all by way of stoppage. Since then, however, he looks to have regained the form he’s had when he was considered a potential pound-for-pound fighter — and I still rate him as a pound-for-pound talent.
Campbell (17-1, 14 KOs) has only one blip on his record, a split decision loss to Yvan Mendy in late 2015. But since then he’s won five consecutive fights with the last three coming by knockout. Linares will certainly be the most talented fighter Campbell has faced, but we’ll see if he’s up to the task tomorrow.
All the action starts tomorrow at 10pm ET, on HBO.
