Great to watch!
The overhand right Lomski used to knock Tommy down the second time was a real beauty!
While Loughran was a true boxing master his style seems a bit old-fashioned, typical of his time.
Very upright, in fact leaning back, very much on his backfoot with hands low and far out from the body picking off and parrying rather than to block punches.
It's a sort of a fencer's style with the jab used to spear or stab the opponent.
Loughran was probably one of the last masters of this particular style as orthodx boxers in the 40's and 50's tended to hold their hands higher closer to the body and be less upright.
