    needs to drop down and change trainers.

    He left the best loma in the amateurs which is a shame, I have never quite seem him at his mobile best outside of the gary russell fight since then.

    Its a shame loma has not turned out to be quite the fighter in the pros as he was at amatuer level

    Walters just KTFO Donaire and Rigo gave Donaire a boxing lesson. How are they not great wins for Lomo? Can anyone be objective about Lomo instead of being a hater or fanboy?

    Of course he can, why not?. It's not like he was knocked out cold. He fought an insanely tough fighter and still went the full 12 despite clearly losing.

    If Lopez fought lightweight Crawford he would spark him out. If little Cuban leprechaun Gamboa can nearly spark Crawford out with a solitary right hand despite giving away 7lbs (even more in natural weight) and 9'' in reach whilst only managing to stop 2 of his 11 opponents at that weight (one of whom was shot and had only fought once in three years, against a nobody), then what the hell do you think would happen If Lopez detonated one of his bombs on his mandible section? And don't tell me he wouldn't have been able to catch him with one, because he certainly possesses the speed, wouldn't be at a 9'' reach disadvantage, is just as athletic and physically gifted and explosive as Gamboa if not more, and his counter punches are both vicious and very fast.

    Even up at 140 Crawford spent the entire duration of his fight against the 5lb lighter Pity Pat Postol on his bicycle in mortal fear of getting clipped by the wind of a punch from a light puncher who had only stopped 3 of his previous 16 opponents and one of those stoppages was on an eye injury and one of the others against a tomato can who has been stopped in 9 of his 10 losses.

    Image that was power punching athletic phenom Lopez who is both lighting quick and has dynamite in both gloves standing in the opposite corner to him? How many ring miles do you think he would've clocked up? He would've been on his bicycle from first bell to last stinking out the joint so badly the boos from the crowd would've been reverberating around the venue for decades.

    Lopez vs Crawford at 135 = Lopez via KO

    And you can take that to the bank

    With Lopez Crawford in Lopez's size will have main problems cos Lopez is good body puncher.
    Lopez like Loma might KO with liver punch pretty easily, if landed properly.
    Boxers usually are pretty comfortable to focus on head, some from them looks more equally comfortable to go for body too. Lopez looks is from this kind of boxers.

    Yawn

    Did Loma have size disadvantages at 135? Yes or no?

    You’re comparing Olympian amateurs to pros. You sound like a casual fan.
