Fighter history

Haney is 25-0 and holds the WBC title. The Ring Magazine ranks him fourth among lightweights, with Teofimo Lopez currently The Ring’s champ. Haney won the WBC belt in September 2019 when he forced Zaur Abdullaev to retire after the fourth round. He has since successfully defended the title twice, most recently defeating Yuriorkis Gamboa by unanimous decision this past November.

Linares is 47-5 and a former champ at three divisions — featherweight, super featherweight, and lightweight. This is his first fight since February 2020. He knocked out Carlos Morales in the fourth round of the fight, which followed a September 2019 unanimous decision victory over Al Toyogon.

Linares has been working his way back after a stumble in which he lost the WBA and The Ring lightweight titles. He had claimed the two belts in a September 2016 unanimous decision victory over Anthony Crolla. Linares made three successful title defenses before suffering a 10th round TKO loss to Vasyl Lomachenko in May 2018. He knocked out Abner Cotto in the third round of his first bout after the loss, but then suffered a first round TKO loss to Pablo César Cano in January 2019.
