Will be made up if Crolla can pinch it....if they both turn up on form I'd say it'll be a repeat win fro Linares.

Worst undercard ever.

Arnfield v Brian Rose is chief support.

It rivals the undercard of their first fight for that title.  I did look at going to this when it was first announced but having been to the first, there was no way I was going to spend another 500+ on a weekend just to watch the main event again.

I'm not really sure what Crolla can do that much differently to the first fight to change the outcome in his favour.  I think he's just second best in every department so would have to favour another Linares points win in another good scrap.

The last fight was a strange one because although Linares deservedly won....it was close and there were a couple of crucial moments where the fight could have taken a different turn. Crolla was really coming on when Linares shook him up, and that was a key moment. Gave Linares a round he was losing and took Crolla another round to regroup.

I think Crolla can ratchet up his performance level a bit, not sure if Linares can do much better than he did first time around. That was about the best of Linares for me. I think its very tight and up for grabs. Its a great trade fight, won't get the mainstream attention that other lesser fights have garnered....but this is a quality matchup between two very accomplished and respectful fighters.

Think it comes down to Linares...if he turns up on form he takes in same way as last time but if he doesn't then he's in trouble.

Agreed. I'm looking forward to it. The missus is out, so looking forward to watching this one at home with a few beers, hopefully with less Sky bullshit hoopla and a bit more professional broadcasting than we've seen on recent shows.
