    Since Loma is already 31 years old, many lighter weight boxers start fading badly after the age of 30 and some just become washed up over nice. How many years do you reckon Loma has left in him before he starts sliding?
    Loma has taken very very little punishment in his boxing career, in his amateur or pro career he was never in a war, has never taken any real damage in any of his fights. That will probably extend his prime by 2 or 3 years so I reckon we will see Loma sliding once he hits 35, then by the time he is 37 or close to retirement, the Tank fight will get made.

    2/3 years... He's a reflex fighter. He turned pro in his mid 20s so he'll age better than your average LW.. Plus he doesn't get hit much!

    He prepares & trains differently to most too. I think he'll age smartly.. They know what they're doing. Very intelligent individual... He'll know when to quit & so will his dad.

    He's naturally athletic & that decline has to be managed in boxing & I think with his natural ring IQ, his team & overall ability he will adapt.. But I don't see him being around after 35 anyway.

    He looked as good as ever the other night so any of u hoping for a significant decline right now can go swivel lol

    Think as soon as he slows down (around 35) he'll just suddenly walk away from the sport before we really see him fall off a cliff. Just get that sense from him and his dad. Once they make some money and prove a point that'll be it.

    Amateur boxing - both the fighting and the training - doesn't have the same kind of wear and tear as professional boxing. Not in the same ballpark. Unlike most guys in his division who turned pro at 17-18 he has a lot more mileage on the tires.

    He's a master boxer with a very intelligent mind, he flows like water. The style change will be gradual and seamless as years go by.

    One.

    He's already slowing, and weight changes (especially if he goes down in weight again) won't help him.

    That said, he could still be champ in five years, but I'd still say his athletic prime is already achieved now and will slowly slip from here.

    He had a long amateur career, and he’s had plenty of injuries. I give him another two-three years maximum. He’ll want to secure his legacy, another three or four top wins and bowing out as the clear pound for pound number one.

    He can be in and among the best for years to come, but I reckon he’s already physically declining. You can’t beat the clock.

    Three years. That's quite enough to fight anybody who is anybody.

    And at that time, let see if Gervonta is still not ready.
