Linares defends crown and Matthysse gains knockout win in questionable fashion - Dan H Linares (44-3, 27 KO) defended his lightweight crown in less than satisfying fashion vs Gesta (31-2-2, 17 KO) on Saturday. Linares going the distance to take a 118-110, 118-110 and 117-111 win on the scorecards. Many people were again left underwhelmed by the highly rated Linares after this being his second lacklustre win in a row. I feel if he is to step up in level to fight Garcia he will need to put on a much more impressive performance.
