Linares gave a forecast for the fight between Lomachenko and Kambosos

Venezuelan boxing veteran Jorge Linares shared his expectations from the fight between the Ukrainian Vasily Lomachenko and Australian George Kambosos.

These boxers will meet on May 12th in Perth, Australia. The vacant IBF lightweight belt will be at stake.

“I think Lomachenko will win this fight. I have seen Kambosos many times. He always looked great in the gym, during training. In the gym he is a world champion, but the ring is something else. He just doesn’t do the same things there that he does in the gym. Kambosos directs all his energy to the training camp, his mood and everything else remains in the gym.

I don’t think the judges will rob Lomachenko. I just can't imagine it. In the last battle, Vasily showed everyone what he is capable of. You noticed how great he looked in that fight. So I think Lomachenko will win by decision. Perhaps by knockout, but I don’t know,” Boxing Scene quotes Linares as saying.
