    Lol? What is he going to do? As we saw he can't beat Lopez, After he whoop Loma he gained confidence and will get better, Loma will just get older and no way in hell he goes up in weight to try and make legacy

    you’re a ****ing ******, are you listening to what you’re saying? You want him to move up another weight class? He is small at 135, he would get murdered at 140 on size alone.

    he’s already moved up twice after winning a title at his initial weight, titles in three divisions, how many times does a fighter have to move up to have a legacy? Also, how do you know he doesn’t beat Lopez in a rematch? I’m glad you have a crystal ball that gives you the futures outcome.

    So then why doesn't he go down if that's the excuse that he's to "small" Berchelt and Valdez will beat him then you will come out with the excuse that Loma was drained lol truth is Loma has nowhere to run....

    Yesh. But time is against him. The kid is 33 next year. And by that time many young fighters are out to get him. For those who haven't been paying attention. It's the take over.

    One of the best p4p fighters in the sport suffered one close loss on points to another top fighter who is much bigger, and hes a 'joke' now.

    Hes the greatest ever amateur boxer, and already guaranteed to be in the hall of fame straight away.

    Hows your boxing career going?

    Feel free to post your boxing record so we can compare it to Lomas to see who the 'joke' is :D

    Yeah really soft aren't they!

    Artur Beterbiev, Mairis Breidis, Alexander Povetkin, Ruslan Provodnikov, Vitali Klitschko, Tomasz Adamek, , Murat Gassiev, Gennady Golovkin, Radzhab Butaev, Denis Lebedev, Ivan Baranchyk ,Sergey Lipinets, Ievgen Khytrov, Avtandil Khurtsidze, Krzysztof Wlodarczyk, Dariusz Michalczewski etc.

    Khabib Nurmagomedov in UFC, what a soft guy!

    PS go have a watch of the p4p number 1 in the amateurs right now and the future of boxing - Oleksandr Khyzhniak . Another 'soft' guy eh!!

    :D

    Lol Oleksandr Khyzniak is the complete opposite of your trolling incorrect assesment.

    You've clearly not watched him. And unfortunately for you hes turning pro next year after the Olympics and will be fast tracked :)

    @pistal47 the ***** running defensive style is more of an American thing with all these Mayeeather wannabe bums.

    I don't see no tough as **** yanks nowadays that were like Marciano/La Motta/Frazier/Hagler/Basilio.

    They all fight like bitches

    What fighters like Wlad, GGG, Kov etc. show is that if Murica doesn't want you to be great, you won't go down as great. You'll be handicapped by the system and if not that then the media narrators. Behold how elated the Muricans were when GGG/Kov were robbed the first time and how quickly the media turned on them after just one loss.

    Wlad's reign was simply termed illegitimate by Muricans, since Wlad generated a home advantage in Germany and Muricans couldn't quite rob him (plus he was a KO artist). Note that Fury was also on the hit list until Murican promotions realised they could cash in on him and for the mean time he is getting hyped by ESPN and co. But Muricans will ultimately diminish his era and thus all his wins. He's just a novelty for now.

    The point is, if the Murican boxing business and media culture decides that you are great, they'll spin this forever. If they decide you are a threat, they will find a way to diminish you. It's so obvious to see it since these foreigners who have been on the end of this treatment recently have had some of the most dominant runs out there.

    There's a good chance he might make my top 50 LWs of all time.

    He won a gold medal at 132 but 135 is too big for him? Yeah man, what an all time great. Add him to the list of other all time greats who lost to a 22 year old and then finished their career at a lower weight class.

    How about some substance to go along with your poorly thought through proclamation that everyone is an idiot ?

    Walters and Rigo are better wins and they are great wins. Bro, you are just hating. While Lomo has not beaten a future ATG, he has fought almost nothing but top contenders and champions and dominated almost all of them. By the way, this may be a controversial opinion but Lomo outscored Lopez substantially overall but lost 6 to 7 rounds in isolation. Loma even scored cleaner and more effectively against Salido but left too many rounds in doubt.
