It will not be an easy fight for him or for me. He has his audience, I have mine. He has my respect too, I think he’s one of the best at 135 pounds. He is the one that I want, we only wait for the promoter to reach an agreement and I think that it’s better to face Mikey, not so much monetarily, but for motivation, to fight with the best of the best, because he is the best and that is what I want and he wants, nothing more than to stage the fight,” Linares told ESPN Deportes.
“I would come at my best, the experience I have today favours me a lot. He is a good boxer, quite tough, he is Mexican – and I have always had respect for Mexicans even though I lost with three of them. I have no problem with that. Now I’m on another level, I’m in the best moment of my career but I know it will not be easy, neither for him nor for me” Linares concluded.
