Three-time champion Jorge “Niño de Oro” Linares, continued his successful return to the ring , by KO`ing Mexican Carlos Morales.
A spectacular right to the chin, from the lanky Venezuelan ended Morales’s efforts in the fourth round, as he crashed to canvass. Referee Thomas Taylor made the protection count, but quickly realized that Morales was in no fit state to continue.
“I was surprised, but I can prove even more than that,” Jorge Linares said. “Now I’m back at 135 pounds division and I’m ready to show more. I am in the best moment of my career and I can fight anyone.”
