    If Pacquiao beats Thurman, Lomachenko should meet him at 140 for a legit PPV superfight. Pacquiao-Lomachenko would do 1.5 million PPVs. The build up would be INSANE.

    Previously, Lomachenko had said that Pacquiao was old and a win would do nothing for his resume.

    Would Pacquiao then be worthy?

    Hell, Lomachenko would cross over into ATG land if he climbed up to 147 and took the WBA from Pacquiao coming off a win over Thurman.

    It was very strange. Lomachenko first said that he needed a year when the fight was first proposed. Then he said a catchweight would be needed. Then he said 135 or no fight. Then he said no altogether saying that Pacquiao was finished and an old man that would do nothing for his career.

    Arum said that Lomachenko's father rejected the fight.

    Davis will be around for a long time. Pac won't. And I would love for Pac to have the P4P #1 scalp on his resume.

    Lomachenko would have to walk through fire and brimstone to beat Pac. I have Pac by brutal KO.

    Lomachenko would be the smaller man—an advantage that Pac hasn't enjoyed since his featherweight days.

    Do you honestly believe that Lomachenko can survive a left hand from Pac?

    :lol:

    Could we stop with the Loma v Manny nonsense?!!! Loma is a tiny 135lber and many hasn't fought below 144lbs in nearly a decade? You Loma haters really want to see him take another L really badly.

    You don't have any idea what you're talking about. Loma hater? Yeah okay, dumbass.

    Lomachenko is taller and has a similar reach. He supposedly has the advantage in ring IQ, footwork, and defense. Handspeed is equal. Only thing Pac has over Lomachenko is power and experience. Oh, Lomachenko is also a decade younger.

    Don't act like Pac is some big welterweight that rehydrates into the high 150s or mid 160s. Pac is 149-150 on fight night. Orlando Salido was 148 when Lomachenko fought him and Linares, Crolla, and Pedraza were all probably heavier on fight night than Pac. Just STFU because you have no idea what you're talking about. Moron!

    If Pac beat Thurboy badly then Loma is too small an opponent. He's not worthy of Pacquiao.
    Besides, Loma kept ducking Manny anyways so...

    If you're so sure about what youre saying why so defensive? You sound like a woman getting emotional when someone calls her on her bs. Size goes beyond height and reach you imbecile. Doesn't matter though because this fight isnt going to happen because anyone with an iq higher than a potato knows they'll never be able to meet at a fair weight. Only idiots like you believe that.

    I'm not being defensive. I just hate when idiots like you think that the fight is unreasonable based on size when it's clearly not an issue in this match up. Thurman wouldn't have a shot in hell if he rehydrated to less than 150 on fight night, but he will likely be 160 or above. If Pac routinely gives up 10-20 pounds on fight night, why can't Lomachenko fight someone slighter bigger who is smaller than guys he's fought? Pac would be willing to meet Lomachenko at 138-140. And did you forget that Pac is 40 and a shell of himself?

    This is what I'm going to say. No more talks about Pac vs Loma.

    But you want 40 year old Pac to fight Spence and somehow that's a fairer fight.

    Size is height, reach and weight ( not including fat).

    Someone being able to fight at a higher weight doesn’t mean they’re that size, it just means they offset the size disadvantage with their other qualities.

    By all accounts, Pac is a LW. Height, reach, weight. Think of all the recent LWs or former LWs that’s come up and see who was the bigger man?

    Crawford, Rios, horn, broner - all LWs or were LWs. Were any of these LWs really going up to fight a bigger man in Pac?

    Most LWs rehydrate to 150 fight night which is PACs fight night weight at WW.

    In fact his fight night weight hasn’t really changed much since FW days, he’s just been the same sized guy which is why his fights with JMM remained even because he never really at any point held size advantage.
