 “I like that fight, Lomachenko is a good fighter. I have a lot of respect for him but it’s not a difficult fight for me. Because we’re very similar. He has good legs, very fast and quick but he doesn’t have power. I like that style maybe it’s better for me.”

“He’s an Olympian, it’s a different style. Not a professional style but it’s good if he came to Lightweight. I’d stay at Lightweight for this fight. [If we fought] it would be an amazing fight for next year.”

In his next fight Jorge Linares will face Mercito Gesta on January 27 in San Antoni, Texas.
