LINARES DOMINATES CROLLA IN REMATCH

Jorge Linares W12 Anthony Crolla...  In Manchester, England, Jorge Linares defended his WBA lightweight title with a unanimous decision victory over Anthony Crolla.  The win sets Linares up for a possible unification fight with WBC champion Mikey Garcia. Linares and Crolla previously fought a fierce, closely contested battle last September, one that Linares won by just a few rounds.  On Saturday, Linares retained the belt by a wide margin—118-109 on all three scorecards—virtually outclassing Crolla from the outset. Source: showtime Linares floored Crolla in the seventh.  Moments later Linares nearly finished him with a flurry against the ropes.  Crolla, however, would not go quietly.  The Manchester native, perhaps spurned by his home crowd, bravely grew more aggressive in the second half of the fight.  But Linares was simply too sharp, too fast and too comfortable for Crolla to overcome. “First off, I congratulate Jorge Linares for a great win,” said Garcia.  “His skill, flexibility, combinations and power were definitely impressive.  I hope we can make a fight as soon as possible.  He didn’t look cut or hurt so maybe we can fight this summer.”
