It's been more than a year since Linares last fought. He took down Carlos Morales through KO in that February 2020 clash and has since had to wait through the pandemic for his next big opportunity.

He has a golden chance to bolster his stock deep into his career by facing Haney, a competitor regarded as a fast-riser in the division.

What have Devin Haney & Jorge Linares said?

"He’s overlooking me because he’s already thinking of big fights with Teofimo [Lopez] and Ryan Garcia and the other guys, right?" said a confident Linares to BoxingScene.com. "But he made a big mistake. Sometimes you bite off more than you can chew and, in this case, you’re gonna see it Saturday night.”

Haney responded to Linares on DAZN by saying “[Linares] can say what he wants but we have to get in the ring and do it. I can say what I'd do to him and what he’d do to me, but unless we get in the ring it’s pointless to go back and forth.

“My main focus is Linares because those fights don’t happen without a win from beating Jorge Linares."
