R1- Linares is stalking Morales the whole time, allowing Morales to walk him into his jab repeatedly. An accidental headclash creates a cut on Linares. After this, Morales gets in a couple of lead rights to the body.

R2- While Linares is a lot more busier in this round and doing plenty of leading in return, Morales is able to counter him effectively in and out of the exchanges. A counter right uppercut snaps back the head of Linares at one point, allowing him to set up a brief combo to the head afterwards. Linares gets in a nice left uppercut, just for Morales to come back with his own. Morales is showing the better jab between the two. Linares lands enough to make the round close, but I felt that Morales’ counterpunching edged it for him. Each guy is able to sneak in a shot after the bell.

R3- Despite getting off to a good start, the rest of the fight and in turn, career of Morales would go downhill from here. Now Linares has gotten Morales’ timing down and is countering effectively with right hands and left hooks. Morales is probing a lot with his jab, which also causes him to get countered by a right at one point. The enhanced guard and reflexes of Linares allow him to evade more shots in this round than in the previous rounds. When time is about up, Morales runs chin-first into a short, perfectly timed right hand, flattening him. Morales somehow manages to get up. Linares is able get in one more right before the bell, which ultimately saves Morales. We find out in between rounds that Morales indeed did not see the shot that dropped him. Great round for Linares.

R4- Linares is on seek and destroy mode, as he is picking off counters and getting off combinations at times. A counter left hook buckles Morales early. Late, a perfect overhand right freezes and stiffens out Morales before putting him on the canvas again. As one could expect, Morales does not get up. Linares impressively hands the game and tough Morales his first knockout loss and the one that ended his career as well. I do believe that if Linares got a shot at then undefeated Ryan Garcia after this as speculated (damn COVID!), he would have knocked Garcia out. Despite looking sharp in this performance, slow start aside, this would sadly be the last win in the career of Linares.
