There was a general drop in pace in the eighth as both seemed to have given it everything but Crolla was the next to pop in the better shots.
The occasional clinical left-right and a trio of unanswered rights at the end of the 10th again reaffirmed the edge and experience of Linares.
The 11th saw more of the same, Crolla trying but almost knowing he had six minutes to come up with the sort of stunning success that even he could not manage.
He kept pressing, he kept pushing but Linares kept countering, even jabbing on his way back and at times in the penultimate round, he seemed to be thoroughly enjoying his second trip to the United Kingdom.
I've got no complaints. I'll watch it back. I made a few mistakes and walked onto a few sharp counters. I'm disappointed in that and I'm disappointed I couldn't win those belts for Manchester.

Mind you, not too sure how much you can trust the opinion of a man who calls himself 'I'm an armchair moron'.
Can't wait.. RedArmy CrollaLinares pic. W e're waiting on the judges here, although I think Ryder has just about done enough The crowd don't give a damn either way.
Crolla flashes up on the big screen again, and the crowd erupts with cheers. Ryder has been better over the past three or so rounds, landing a couple of nice uppercuts in round eight which may have just nudged him ahead on the judge's scorecards.
Although it's very hard to tell, it's been nip and tuck the whole way through. Ryder carries that momentum into the next round, though, with a decent right hook to the body winding Arnfield.
The local fighter has been struggling to land his jab over the past few rounds, and I think he's going to need to do something special to stop Ryder at this point.
But Crolla said yesterday that he believes he has what it takes to stop the well-journeyed Linares, a forner three-weight world champion, who has fought on four different continents.
I rate Linares very highly but I genuinely believe I'll have an answer for whatever he shows me. He's technically brilliant and I've got to be switched on from the opening bell.
He's a very good counter-puncher, so I know I can't be lazy at any stage. He likes to fight at his pace and I can't allow that.
I've got to take advantage of some weaknesses that I think I've seen there. I'm confident I can do that.
Kevin Mitchell was seconds away from winning but Jorge dragged himself off the floor and came from behind to get the stoppage.
That's what true champions do. I f you thought Crolla looked relaxed on his way into the Arena earlier, just look at this:.
The reach advantage that he boasts is proving significant, and Arnfield did very well in the second round, repeatedly passing Ryder's guard with his jab.
S lightly farcical news from the Manchester Arena: Crolla had to sent an emergency driver back to his house after arriving at tonight's venue because he forgot both his gumshield and his shorts.
Let's just hope he remembered his gloves. Ryder really needs the win here, after earlier defeats to Billy-Joe Saunders and Nick Blackwell.
Y eah it's a big night for Anthony and we're all excited. I'm sure he's excited, hopefully he can win.
It was a good win for us against Leicester and we're delighted with that, and hopefully Anthony, as a huge fan of Manchester United, can win here tonight.
CrollaLinares pic. M y, my, my, what an ugly slugfest that turned into. Shihepo was so busy complaining about a supposed illegal blow in the seventh round that he allowed himself to be caught by a huge bodyshot, that sent him tumbling into the ropes.
This time, the ref ruled it to be a knockdown. The Namibian attempted to give it a go at the beginning of the ninth, but had nothing left in the tank, and was knocked out with a big right hook that left him on the deck and requiring oxygen.
It's all over!! Callum Johnson is the NEW Commonwealth Light Heavyweight champion!! JorgeLinares relaxing backstage. WHAT a main event we have later!!
On my way to the arena now. Been reading all the msgs of support from u all and I can't thank u enough for them. Tonight I get a chance to.
Let's make this night a special one OurNight TeamCrolla. T here was earlier a huge cheer as Crolla was shown on the big screens walking into the Arena, and the year-old had the following to say to Sky Sports:.
I've done this walk many times before. It's bigger than ever before but I'm very confident. I can walk to that ring knowing I've done everything asked of me and then I'll keep those belts in Manchester.
Shihepo made the better start, repeatedly backing Johnson up and attempting to take the fight to his English rival, but it didn't take Johnson very long to settle at all.
The Johnson onslaught continues into the fourth round, though, and Shihepo is lucky to still be standing. G ood to see Fury enjoying the boxing, especially following the news that his withdrawal from the Klitschko rematch was likely because of depression.
Our boxing correspondent Gareth A Davies has the full story here. Benn was taken into a fifth round for the first time in his career and looked utterly knackered come the final round, although he was at that point well ahead on points, with the year-old landing a number of impressive body shots.
He went on to win on points, the ref scoring it H ere's what he had to say following the fight:. I felt like I dealt with it okay.
I started getting gassed in the last round but you learn from it. I'm going to get caught but that's part of the job, learning how to deal with those when they get thrown and come back with better.
If I fight how I spar behind closed doors you'd see a different fighter but it's a different thing learning how to perform in front of a crowd like this.
I've been working on speed and boxing ability in the gym. When I take a shot, I have to learn to not take it personally - I have to get back to the gym and learn.

A nd a call for your thoughts about the evening's action, you can drop me a line at luke. A nother Saturday night, another monumental ocassion for British boxing : a third consecutive weekend with a British world champion in action.
Because Crolla is taking on three-time Venezuelan champion Jorge Linares, a man who has fought on four continents, and who last lost a pro fight over four years ago.
Linares is quite comfortably the best boxer Crolla will have ever shared a ring with. He also has pedigree when it comes to fighting in England, having stopped Kevin Mitchell at the O2, last year.
So expect a thrillingly close fight, which could potentially develop into one of the contests of the year. The ring-walks are expected between Stick with me in the meantime though for more build-up, as well as coverage of the undercard fights.
The fight card in begins at pm on Saturday evening, although the two headline fighters are not set to take to the ring until 10pm that evening.
The world unification bout will take place will be a hometown fight for Crolla with the Manchester Arena playing host to the fight. Coverage of the undercard starts from pm with the main event expected on our screens from 10pm.
WBA world champion Anthony Crolla is hoping to claim Jorge Linares' WBC belt and unify the lightweight division.
The fight has been promoted with the tag line 'two worlds collide,' the covered Ring Magazine belt will also be up for grabs.
W hat's being said? Here's Gareth A Davies' preview. Anthony Crolla sees tonight's lightweight world unification contest with Jorge Linares as "a legacy fight" with the Venezuelan who is ranked No 1 lightweight in the world by dint of holding The Ring Magazine belt.
T he two men have similar styles, Linares being vulnerable around the whiskers, yet able to deliver power in both hands, but notably his dangerous right, from a broad back and vast experience.
The Venezuelan was in trouble at times in his only other fight in the UK, last May against the now retired Londoner Kevin Mitchell, but to Crolla's advantage, Linares can be hurt and stopped, which will be the plan for the Manchester man, who has shown unerring accuracy in his last three world title performances.
Crolla stopped Darleys Perez in their world title rematch with a brutal body shot in the fifth round to claim the WBA lb title and followed it up with a scintillating pin point performance against the dangerous Venezuelan Ismael Barroso in his first defence, outboxing the South American and allowing him to punch himself out before breaking him up and stopping the challenger in the seventh round with another trademark body shot.
In two years, Crolla has gone from European level fighter to genuine world beater. Former two-weight champion and fellow Mancunian Ricky Hatton made a fine point about Crolla this week.
He lost a six rounder early in his career and to Derry Mathews later on, everyone wrote him off and to achieve what he has is test of his character.
Anthony is lovely kid, some say he is too nice to be a boxer but there is a mean streak there. He has developed in to a good all-round fighter, he has a very exciting style and is brutal body puncher.
I know he can do the business against Linares. L inares believes his fellow countryman Barroso was too aggressive too early in the fight with Crolla, and that he is ready to tough it out for 12 rounds to take the titles back home.
Crolla is convinced he is on an unstoppable run. Crolla backing off. The champion was oozing not only class but confidence born of their first fight.
Linares starting to show why he's the champion. A couple of nasty blows to the body of Crolla. Crolla struggling to get much on Linares yet again but his movement is looking very good indeed.
Crolla looked anything but tired at the start. Crolla has to use his fans who are crammed into the Manchester Arena.
It holds 21, spectators and it seems every one of those is backing Crolla. Linares said before the fight he wouldn't have any sort of support here.
Linares keeps his focus for the first round, though. Crolla not afraid to go forward either. No significant punches landed.
Jorge Linares,' announces John McDonald. Linares has a steely look about him. Crolla bounced into the ring and looked energetic but a little nervous.
Linares doesn't appear nervous at all. Confident walk to the ring and the crowd who have been very vocal have been sounded out.
There hasn't been too much talk leading up to this one. Plenty of respect. There was a concern pre-contest that this could end up being a relatively boring encounter with the pair standing off each other.
But the way both fighters have been warming up suggests they are ready for a scrap that could last the distance.
And it's Jack Arnfield who takes it. Deserved you'd have to say. A disappointing fight. Arnfield was definitely the stronger fighter but it was never going to be edgy.
They both know each other well and there was no bite. The man from Venezuela. The WBC lightweight champion. The man who beat Crolla in September last year.
Crolla may have weighed in heavier but Linares looks incredibly sharp. He possesses such speed and power. It's not surprise that he is the favourite tonight despite Crolla boxing on home turf.
Arnfield and Rose making a real go of this way. Very even but Arnfield looks stronger and is getting his combinations spot on.
However, it still looks as though this will go the distance. Crolla isn't allowing it to bother him. He's currently sparring in his locker room.
No sign of Linares who likes to keep himself to himself before fights. Oh, and big Anthony Crolla fan and boxing fan Wayne Rooney is watching.
Probably beats preparing for a drab World Cup qualifier against Lithuania tomorrow. Of course tonight's focus will quickly turn to Crolla v Linares but it wouldn't be fight night without an undercard.
In particular we're looking at the mighty Katie Taylor v Milena Koleva and Brian Rose v Jack Arnfield. Rose v Arnfield is currently in the fourth round with both keeping their difference early on.
They're fighting for the WBA international middleweight championship. It took Taylor four rounds to send Koleva packing.
Promoter Eddie Hearn - the man behind Anthony Joshua - used tonight to boost the Irish fighter's profile. That's happening for sure. It was a tough fight and Jorge won.
I believe there is more room for improvement with me and I believe it can be a different result. It's about that time yet again.
Last week we had the delights of Gennady Golovkin winning on points against Daniel Jacobs. This week we get to see two supreme lightweights in Anthony Crolla and Jorge Linares go toe-to-toe yet again for the WBC lightweight championship.
Will it go the distance like it did last week in New York? Get your suggestions in. Pre-fight build-up on its way from Manchester Arena.
Anthony Crolla can take revenge against Jorge Linares when they clash for the WBC lightweight championship in Manchester on Saturday night. The former WBC lightweight champion lost his belt in September before a rematch was agreed.
In addition to the WBA title, Linares' Ring Magazine belt will also be on the line. The pair have great respect for each other but Crolla believes being the underdog has him fired up more than ever to win his crown back.Anthony Crolla will enter the Manchester Arena to defend his WBA lightweight title against Jorge Linares this Saturday.
