    Inspired by Teofimo’s win over Loma last night where he used brute force to overpower the more technical fighter. Obviously Teo is very skilled in his own right but Loma is still known as the better technician.
    What are some other examples of fighters that used their size, power, and offense to beat the better boxer?

    Felix Trinidad beating Whitaker.

    Power not a factor at all, Lopez put on a clinic and Loma was missing mentally until the 9th when he started getting his offense off.

    Yes he did outbox Loma, but that was mostly because Loma respected his power and kept backing up. Teo’s hard body shots also played a factor. This is similar to how Kovalev outboxed Hopkins when Hopkins was very weary of his power after he got knocked down.

    Teo's IQ is through the roof but his athleticism, size, and power left Loma wary of coming in on him

    Monzon against Napoles
    Fury against Cunningham (Fury is the more skilled fighter, but he sure as hell wasn't that night!)
    Jeffries against Fitzsimmons

    Am I alone thinking that Teofimo didn't deserve the win? Was his agression effective? Was this punchstat truthful? Did you watch the fight with no sound? I think it was bull**** and I'm no fan of Loma

    It is well known that Margarito used plaster of Paris in his hand wraps

    In what way does this matchup qualify for the thread at hand?
