    Agreed. Linares has a pretty good resume but he will have little to offer against Lomachenko. I think late or even possibly a mid round stoppage in this fight.

    ^^^^^^^^

    I'm thrilled to read this. Lomachenko should not fall into the trap of moving up and up and up in weight. They love to pressure fighters into doing this until they are fighting guys 20 pounds heavier and 5 inches taller than them. Manny Pacquiao played that game which is one of the reasons he struggled to put guys away in the recent years. Pacquiao is a true welterweight, so if he dropped a few pounds and cut water, he could easily and comfortably make 135 in my opinion. Lomachenko and Pacquiao would be a really fun one to watch and Lomachenko winning it would be another gold star on his resume.

    I initially thought that the minor upset that happened on the ESPN card was going to send a monkey wrench into the plans of "Bub", matching Loma and Beltran in the late fall, but it looks like Pedraza signed a similar contract to fight Loma late in the year in a unification fight.

    I guess a low 7 figure purse does wonders on getting camps to agree on unification fights. On a side note Pedraza looks like a full blooded Euro so this is an all White unification fight......http://www.espn.com/boxing/story/_/...tran-unanimous-decision-win-lightweight-title
