I think Haney might actually be the best 135 pounder, no doubt about it now

    Consider that this is the Lightweight division. These are tiny men. Lopez, Garcia and Davis fight like they are LHW's. That power won't translate against Haney. You can only generate so much force being a dwarf or 5'9" lanky, skinny guy. At the highest levels of the division guys who load up on shots get found out real fast if you are in the lower weights. I always think back to Barrera against Hamed. And Hamed was far better (and harder hitting) than Lopez, Garcia and Davis were p4p. Haney would likely dance circles around the rest of the division. Guys like Garcia, Davis, Lopez and even Loma would miss the mark. Maybe a younger Loma would be favored, but at his age and at his smaller size, even he likely cannot deal with Haney's slipperiness.

    I can't wait for Lomachenko to knock his ass out just so I can watch you jump off of his bandwagon like rats off of a sinking ship, just like you did with Teofimo Lopez.:lol:

    Hayne is ok. But he’s nothing special. Loma is wayyyy better.

    Only reason I got on the Teo bandwagon is because I despise Loma and the fraudulent forum hero was exposed. I never cared about Teo. Anybody who put an L on Loma's ledger was fine by me.

    Loma has 2 L's and his best career win is Gary Russell Jr. But he's an ATG? Whatever.

    Loma's best win is GRJ. Haney would squash Russell like a bug, and I don't even like Haney. I'm keeping it honest.

    Haney is indeed the best 135 pounder. He'd toy with Tank or Garcia lol. Loma vs. Haney is a good fight. I favor Haney there but Loma is probably the only guy who has the skills to beat Haney.

    He got rocked to his core by linares did a chicken dance and jo jo diaz was pinging his head back like a speed ball.

    there’s a reason he’s boiling himself down this guy will regularly get stopped by end of his career.

    Haney got rocked by old man Linares. Loma has plowed through 3 divisions. Fighting defensively won’t work against Loma like it did against Kambossos. To beat Loma you need to big man him and be aggressive. Loma will win by UD.

    Meh, not convinced by his chin, and his complete absence of power is concerning especially when he moves up eventually

    They are both tiny, small men, who like to pity pat. Loma vs Haney would be the world's biggest eyesore. It will be a stinkfest of two little guys, where Haney hugs Loma all night long and outlands him with a longer reach and wins on points, and then the whole forum has a sitewide cryfest and meltdown. Only way the fight goes.

    You don't need power in the lower weights.

    So I guess your hero Manny ****ing Pacquiao who fought with an injury which greatly hampered his performance against an equally shot old has been, barely won 4 rounds while trying his heart out, then goes on to lose to ****ing Jeff Horn and the horrid Ugas, ending his career with a shocking 8 losses. He's an ATG. But Loma loses to a stylistic nightmare in his second match where his opponent hit him in the ****ing balls at least 50 times, that should've been a draw or a close win for him. Then Loma after years of dominating top tier opponents with ease, idiotically chooses to fight injured like your hero against an undefeated KO artist, plays it too safe, miscalculates then turns it on late in an attempt to win by KO, and wins 5 of the last 6 rounds with ease. But he's a bum!

    If you didn't have double standards you wouldn't have any standards at all.

    No, you're keeping it hyper emotional, unhinged, irrational and hate goggle filtered.

    I agree, Loma will stop the Haney hype train. I hope he doesn't start slow as he did in Lopez and Ortiz fights. Because then people will complain "they robbed Haney" or root for a rematch etc. In normal circumstances, Loma won't lose a single round to Haney.
