3The Jorge Linares-Vasiliy Lomachenko fight is a done deal for May 12 at New York’s Madison Square Garden, a source with knowledge of the contract signing told ESPN. Linares (44-3, 27 KOs) will defend his lightweight world title against pound-for-pound king and junior lightweight champion Lomachenko (10-1, 8 KOs), who will move up in weight seeking to win a title in his third division in the fight that Top Rank will promote as part of its deal with ESPN.

Many didn’t think the fight would be made because of the bitter rivalry between Top Rank and Linares co-promoter Golden Boy Promotions. But they got it done and the contract between the promoters was signed Monday afternoon after ESPN agreed to move up the start time of the boxing event to 8 p.m. ET so as not to overlap with the Golden Boy event that will air on HBO at approximately 10 p.m. ET. The sides agreed on the money a couple of weeks ago but it was a deal-breaker for Golden Boy if the ESPN show conflicted with its HBO card.
