Jorge Linares vs. Vasyl Lomachenko Official Weigh-in – Jorge “El Niño de Oro” Linares (44-3-0, 27 KOs) will defend his World Boxing Association (WBA) title against Vasiliy “Hi-Tech” Lomachenko (10-1-0, 8 KOs) on Saturday, May 12, at Madison Square Garden. Linares vs. Lomachenko will be televised live and exclusively at 8:00 p.m. ET on ESPN and ESPN Deportes and stream live on the ESPN App at 6:30 p.m. ET.
Three stoppage defeats from 2009-2012 halted Linares’ momentum, but he has since re-established his place among the sport’s very best. Lomachenko has already conquered the featherweight and super featherweight divisions as a professional. Now, the two-time Olympic gold medalist is ready to put the lightweight division on notice.
Today, the boxers hit the scales and our man Marcelino Castillo was there live.
