Former light welterweight champion (up to 63.5 kg), American veteran Chris Aljieri admitted that he expects an interesting confrontation from lightweights Davin Haney and Jorge Linares, who will lead the show from Matchroom today in Las Vegas.
“I think this fight for Haney will be very different from his last performance. Because in front of him there will be a guy who is actually taller and larger than Gamboa. And he is ready to fight.
Linares has great skills and is a slippery boxer with good legs and a front hand. And, as for me, he is preparing to drag out the fight into the later rounds. I think he will make his moves and keep a close eye on how Devin reacts to it. In fact, there are still many questions for Haney, ”Aljieri said.
Earlier, ex-champion in two weights and ESPN commentator Timothy Bradley shared his opinion about this confrontation.
