    As I'm thinking on it...what white guys were really unfairly fast tracked to P4P ratings over the past ten years or so?

    I know the white hype thing that ran up through the 80's/90's (with Tommy Morrison being maybe the last really notable example of it here), but it seems like the pendulum swung back the other way, with US fans in general being reluctant to back white fighters until after the fact (if they don't just move the goalposts instead). Its been awhile since the "white hope" narrative was actually actively pitched by the boxing media, but the shadow of it still hangs over a lot of gyms by the looks of it.

    If he was the best fighter or even a true top 5 p4p fighter he'd be able to take on the Champs at 140/ and compete at 47.

    He's always the bigger fighter on fight night except when he found a fat salido, I had that fight even or loma by a round, BUT NO P4P FIGHTER STRUGGLES WITH SAILDO THAT BAD, fighting even VS a fat already sliding salido was nothing short of embarrassing..

    Too close a fight with too low a level fighter.

    I guarantee you MG does far greater than winning a couple rounds, he punishes loma and stops him. Loma doesn't have anything to throw at MG that wouldn't be brushed off like NOTHING

    Unreale. That's like saying "if Floyd was so great why didn't he fight Martinez!"

    There are weight classes for a reason. Loma was dwarfed by Linares and Pedraza at lightweight.

    Even better, go to his fights at 126 and 130lbs. Is he bigger than Walters or Russel? No, absolutely not. He's significantly smaller than Walters and has a slightly smaller frame than Russell.

    Salido? Ha! The man missed weight and outweighed him by 20lb in his SECOND pro fight. fouled repeatedly and still won a clear fight by 7-5. Anyways, it has zero bearing on today.

    Mikey gets blanked for a second time in two fights. But believe me, the Loma loss will be much more humiliating than Spence.

    You're a POS always have been always will be. You hated PBF when he dominated the sport, he and made you sick to your stomach. You have no room to talk here jackass.

    Loma is a great fighter and what Alexander said is wrong he's a P4P fighter to deny that is ridiculous.

    So Loma has to move up 4-5 divisions, the rest of the world doesn't for some reason, yes?

    Floyd Joy Mayweather is an American sporting legend and was largely misunderstood at the time by many like me. I liked him (loved?) when i met the man in the flesh at the Trump inauguration. A TRUE American Son he is.

    But how do you explain the hate from some people in boxing??? Pretty crazy to me that neither Devon or Spence , two former world champion, have less than zero respect for loma??

    Devon is a racist bum who lost to every decent fighter he faced . He lost to kotelnik too , but got a gift decision.
