    Loma IS great. Losing one fight does not make you not-great. :nusenuse:

    Of course he can. Especially since the loss came with mitigating circumstances-the shoulder.

    Hes still active so we shall see. His accomplishments to date are already highly impressive.

    He needs to fight the fights to prove that though. He has one top level win, and that is Russell Jr. There are guys for him to fight. I'd favor him over Lopez in a rematch, if he can find his balls in the first round, instead of the 8th. I still think he'd beat Berchelt, Tank, and Ryan Garcia. He could even go after Haney, who I think is all wrong for him. Loma just has to fight the fights.

    One of the fights I would LOVE to watch is the rematch loma vs russell jr.

    I bet it would be very very very different to the first fight.

    Clenelo was juiced to the gills and stacked his wraps.

    I agree. And Russell Jr. wants the fight. That's another viable opponent for him.

    Yes. Lomachenko stops him this time.

    I mean, if he goes back down, beats the Valdez-Berchelt winner, beats the Herring-Frampton winner (Or Stevenson if he comes out on top of that, group), then thats a pretty legitimate career.

    Ideally a win over Davis would do a lot for his career.

    He needs that, big win

    Yes, why not? I only said that it would be VERY different to the first fight. Who knows, maybe is sLomo the one taking a nap. Or not.

    Because the first fight was BS, a clear strategy mistake by russell for god knows the reason. I would love to see that fight without one of them throwing the fight even before entering the ring with a crappy plan.

    I apologize sincerely... But can you please not respond to any of my posts? Your English language skills are poor and you tend to come at me w/ essays.

    :(

    You can’t take what he’s accomplished so far in his career. Winning 2 gold medals and a 3 division world champion is more than a lot of boxers accomplish. If that rematch fight with teo gets made and he defeats teo it’ll just show more greatness from him.
