Jorge Linares (16-0, 10) Vs Ayon Naranjo (13-5, 5)
Japanese fans have seen Jorge Linares grow up in front of their eyes and have taken to him as one of their own. The good looking Venezuelan was just a baby when he began his career in Japan though is now a fully grown world class fighter set to fight for a third divisional world title. Skilled, fast and powerful Linares looked like he had all the tools very early and everyone of those tools was put on show against tough Filipino Ayon Naranjo. This bout sadly left Naranjo in hospital and ended his career.
