Jorge Linares (19-0, 12) Vs Saohin Srithai Condo (50-12, 34)
Teiken promoted Jorge Linares is a man we all know and we likely all have our opinions of. For some he is the most wonderful offensive fighter on the planet who skills to burn and all the traits to be a star whilst others view him as a mentally fragile fighter with serious durability issues. Whatever your view it's hard to deny that he has been in some great fights over the years. Although highly touted some would suggest that Linares wasn't really tested until his 20th bout when he took on PABA Featherweight champion Saohin Srithai Condo of Thailand. Condo was still dangerous, naturally a similar size to Linares and tough making him the perfect test for Linares ahead off a world title bout.
