    do you know what amateur boxing means to me?

    ****, exactly, that's what it means to me. And I doubt that I am the only pro-boxing fan who thinks likewise.

    Amateur achievements mean NOTHING in proboxing. At least to me. ZERO, RIEN, NIENTE, NADA, NOTHING, NICTHS.

    It’s the gold medals,no matter how you look at it, it goes on history. Amateur fighting prepare most great boxers for more greatness. It’s happen with Ali, Leonard, Roy Jones, Tyson, cotto, etc.

    Nope, not at the rate they are fighting. No dominance, opponent selection weak. Loma's resume is a cut above, but below ATG status.

    nah. Not true. Had tyson only got a gold medal people would wonder who the F is tyson.

    A gold medal only means a good promoter willing to put money on you. Nothing else. You are not greater for having a gold medal, how many olympic gold medals have pacman or mayweather? nah, it does not mean **** in proboxing. It means nothing for sLomo, it means nothing for rigo, it means nothing for leonard, and it means nothing for campbell. who? right.

    It all depends on what he does after this. Does he move down and unify ? re-match Teo? Stay at 135 and take on the top 5 ? Also is his body holding up? If he ends it today he would be remember as a very good fighter but he is nowhere near the conversation of greatness.

    Yes but he needs to stay away from Teofimo Lopez and Gervonta Tank Davis.

    Loma is great already, one loss doesn't define his career.

    Will he school Haney worse than he did Lopez? If I'm not mistaken, Lopez didn't quit on his stool. I thought that was going to happen. Guys starting to sound a bit redundant.

    In just 16 pro fights

    Lomachenko has faced

    Guillermo Rigondeaux
    Gary Russell Jr
    Jorge Linares
    Teofimo Lopez
    Nicholas Walters
    Luke Campbell
    Roman Martinez
    Orlando Salido
    Jose Pedraza
    Jason Sosa
    Anthony Crolla
    Miguel Marriaga


    And he beat almost all of them ( the losses could easily have been a win vs salido and draw vs lopez). breaking fastest record after fasting record over 3 weights, winning multiple world titles,making 4 top fighters quit in a row, becoming p4p number 1.

    Plus he wanted to face Gervonta Davis, Mikey Garcia, Miguel Berchelt but they ducked him.

    No one can question Loma wants to face the best and wants to be a great, and no one can question lomas excellent resume. If you do.. you make it very clear you are just a hating troll.

    im talking more about amateur developing fighters for the pros. Amateur boxing it’s a big part of success in the pros. Not all but most!

    His best win is Gary Russell, who till this moment has done nothing, Loma is overrated he couldn't beat a old shot Salido and a young green Lopez, that doesn't happen to great fighters.

    Why? Do you have zero boxing IQ?

    He probably shouldn’t have gone to 135 in the first place, and still won 4 of his 5 fights there.

    This forum is full of idiots.
