    Loma is seen practising Mauy Thai kicks on this vid, could he be thinking of moving to the MMA world? He stated he might when he becomes te best P4P fighter in the world. Loma has training in wrestling also and for me he is the most skilled fighter of all-time, is he the most rounded combat sportsman of all-time in a certain way then?

    Lomachenko also wrestles, but I doubt he will fight in mma. Maybe like an exhibition fight after he retires from boxing.

    I thought it was huge news, you don`t think Loma will move to Mauy Thai, at the start of his career he said he might if he became the world No.1 P4P.

    Boxing`s No.1 P4P fighter Loma has been taped doing Mauy Thai kicks, he stated at the start of his career if he ever became the best boxer in the would he could then move on to the MMA world, he also has wrestling training, could he make the switch?

    Obviously Loma has the basic tools in spades (speed, athleticism, movement etc.) But he’d be starting late and need to pick the early matches carefully.

    I’d say with proper training and careful advancement, yes. All McGregor really had was standup and power, and he went far.

    But compared to boxing, the money just isn’t there. Can’t see it ever happening.

    Yeah. Loma could crossover into whatever combat sport he wanted to and have success. He's that good.

    He'd really just have to work on takedown and submission defense. Which given his talent and ability to learn wouldn't be that hard. Most boxers wouldn't have as easy of a time.
