Jorge Linares Vs Nihito Arakawa

Fight preview and betting recommendation

I have been pondering this play all day and looking at some more  footage of both fighters i have decided the play is viable and offers value, Arakawa was involved in a fight of the year contender with Omar Figueroa last year, while the scorecards would suggest it was a dominant victory for Figueroa, it was not – Arakawa was relentless, showed a huge amount of toughness and heart and forced Figueroa to dig extremely deep to get the win. 

Linares has held world titles at both featherweight and super-feather weight he is the better technician with a solid jab yet he has shown a vulnerability with 3 stoppage losses, 2 inside 2 rounds against Sergio Thompson and Juan Carlos Salgado, he was also stopped late on by Antonio De Marco. 

Linares will have more tools but he will be up against a guy who generally doesn’t know when he is beat and can punch enough to hurt him, i wonder if we may see Linares show his vulnerable side again tonight. 

Arakawa is tough and durable and will be on the offensive he can be had at 5/1 and i think he is worth a shot.
