THE LOWDOWN

Devin Haney (25-0, 15 KO) is making the third defence of his WBC lightweight title against former title-holder Jorge Linares, who had possession of this belt from 2014 to 2016. Haney comes into this contest with an impressive 100% winning record in his 25-fight professional career but there are many who believe that he has yet to be really tested and this bout against Linares is expected to be his biggest challenge so far.

Jorge Linares (47-5, 29 KO) certainly has plenty of pedigree as the 35-year-old is a three-weight world champion, who has proven what a top-level performer he is on many occasions during a professional career which started in 2002. The Venezuelan star still feels he is up there amongst the best fighters in this division and he is determined to prove it with a victory against Haney in Las Vegas.

THE PREDICTION

This is a fascinating contest in so many ways, with rising star Devin Haney determined to show that he can live up to the hype, while Jose Linares has his sights on becoming a world champion again in what is surely the twilight of his illustrious career. The Venezuelan star is highly motivated heading into this bout and Haney will certainly have to dig deep if he is to retain his title. The champion is well poised to do that though, he has speed and stamina in his favour and these attributes are likely to be crucial in the later rounds. A hard-fought victory for Haney is the prediction
