    In terms of fighting the best out there, regardless of division, age or weight, Lomo TOWERS above Mayweather. He seeks the best.

    Different resumes. IMO Lomo needs a few more wins over top opponents to catch Floyd

    Loma needs more big wins to get into the conversation. If he cleans out LW and moves down to 130 and does the same, he’s definitely in the conversation. He will never get close to Floyd’s PPV popularity but no fighter in today’s climate will. Plus he’s Eastern European and English is not his first language. Lastly, Loma is getting old and doesn’t have much time to get it done. Being as big as Floyd is asking a lot. He could be the the best fighter of his era which would be a great accomplishment.

    This is an odd comparison when talking about two fighters who are in the same weight class. Lopez's athleticism, strength and explosiveness may contribute to the illusion that he's so much bigger than Loma. There's not that much of a difference. At least at this point in their careers.

    People constantly throw in prime Shane, prime Oscar and Tzsyu at the top of his duck list. Some you can argue, those 3 names you can't.

    Show me a video where he ducked Shane. Shane's on record saying that he needed a holiday and had a tooth ache.

    Lomachenko should try to carve out his own legacy, instead of worrying about being as good as Floyd.

    Corralles wasn't that good of a win for floyd, he had domestic abuse charges and knew he was going to jail straight after the fight. Like I said, floyd knows exactly when to fight certain guys. He heard about how corralles beat up his pregnant wife and offered him the fight, knowing he was in trouble and not doing well mentally.

    I highly doubt he's worrying about that.

    This has to be the most stupid thread on the planet. Who the **** has Loma even fought? He got beat already, Floyd beat Manny, Delahoya, Mosley, Cotto, Canelo, Corrales, Hatton, Marquez, Gatti, Judah, Ndou etc Who the **** has Loma fought? Go on name 10 big names. Lol like gtfo with this bs about him already past Floyd you idiots need hanging for being so stupid.

    A long way. He won’t have had enough fights to overtake Floyd

    Typical unsubstantiated one-line response, so Trumpesque.

    Are you even capable of an explanation?
