Please don't all vote at once guys, we don't wanna overload the server.
I didn't even know there was a vote. Everyone will come back when boxing comes back, though, and I'm not talking about these shitty mismatches and Shakur Stevenson fights. I say Linares, but it is tough to call because Fortuna does hit pretty hard.

Fortuna does seem to be having that haymaker-throwing, aggressive slugger, smothering kind of style that Linares always struggles with.
In terms of pure boxing ability I think Linares is more polished?
He looks like a machine too as of lately

Oh fuck yeah, his last fight was absolutely impressive. I don't feel like going to BoxRec, but the guy he fought was tough as nails and should've had a win over Ryan Garcia.

I doubt most fans know enough about either of these guys to make a serious call. They're both known primarily for their high-profile losses.
(OK, the Cano win was nice, but you get my point.)

I enjoy watching Linares, I like his athletic & aggressive style, but that's all I can say. Fortuina lost in both of his fights that I actually saw. (The two times he faced serious opponents.)

Well, Linares has excellent reach. He's also one of the few fighters that really took it to Loma, instead of just surviving, so what the heck I'll vote for a Linares stoppage. - But that call is basically meaningless. :lol:
