The career of the excellent WBA world lightweight champion, Jorge Linares, appears to be dominated by bouts against British fighters recently.

After ending the career of Kevin Mitchell, Linares, who has a record that reads 43-3 with 27 wins coming by knockout, fought Anthony Crolla and deprived him of his world title belt.

A re-match between Linares and Crolla had the same result, although Crolla, it has to be said, performed admirably in both bouts against a master-boxer.

Most recently, Linares took on Luke Campbell, at The Forum in Inglewood California. Hull?s Campbell pushed Linares all the way and some say Linares was lucky to get the verdict, via a split decision.

Now it would appear that Linares is set to lock-horns with another British fighter in the shape of Terry Flanagan in a unification fight.

Flanagan, who has a record that reads 33-0 with 13 wins coming by way of knockout, is the reigning WBO champion.

Although no contracts have, as yet, been signed, the suggestion is that a deal is close to being agreed.

Will Flanagan fare any better against Linares than Mitchell, Crolla or Campbell did, if the bout is signed, sealed and delivered?
