Get ready for Saturday’s Jorge Linares vs. Anthony Crolla rematch with a look back at their first encounter.
For serious boxing fans, the 2016 fight between Jorge Linares and Anthony Crolla was one of the big ones of last year. The two Lightweights did battle to (arguably) determine the sport’s #1 fighter at 135 pounds. Heading into the fight, fans anticipated an interesting stylistic match-up. What they got was a dramatic and exciting fight that showed off both high level skills and heart.
This Saturday, the two men meet once more, as Jorge Linares vs. Anthony Crolla II is live from the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England this Saturday, March 25. The fight will be broadcast in the US on Showtime at 6:00 p.m. ET.
To get ready for the rematch, Showtime has made the complete first Linares vs. Crolla fight available online. You can watch it above, or click here to watch online at Showtime’s site.
