    linares lack of physicality and durabilty is gonna catch up to him as good as he is offensively he is a liability def, though he is much improved and his athleticism is on decline…

    a guy like garcia will most likely stop him, right now if he moved up i would pick broner to beat him; cus linares has def lapses and doesnt (imo) react to getting hit as well as a guy w/his pedigree and caliber of skills should.
