    Uh, Manny Pacquiao. He was able to compete and be effective at 147 because he carried most of his power up. Christ, use your brains, man.

    A 126 Loma was at his prime or damn near close to it. I'm of the opinion that a prime Loma isn't easy work for anyone in the history of 126.

    I rate Inoue extremely high, but Loma has beat a better level of opponent than Inoue has beaten. Inoue has not beaten anyone near a prime Loma. Although the same can be said about Loma in regard to Inoue.

    Lastly, Inoue hasn't even thrown a punch at 122, so saying he beats a prime Loma at a weight even higher than that is a bit off the mark, bordering the realms of ridiculous. Not because Inoue isn't good or even great, because there isn't any realistic gauge to base your claim.

    Sure he has sparred many heavier opps different when they trying take your head off.Nothing will prepare you for the weight, power and strength of a heavier opp. Leaning on you and hitting you with bombs. Now like you said. We need to see if he can take a big featherweight punch that has more than 30% KO. He hasn't fought a true puncher. Donaire has a punch but I would say he is not what many proclaim as lethal with his punch. Moving up in weight he hasn't felled opponents either. So his left hook was most destructive against smaller weaker foe at 112-118 range. But a blunt instrument at 126 and beyond.

    Pac knocked down Bradley several times, Cotto, Mosley, Thurman. The dudes power was still clearly a factor at 147.

    I mean, it's a fantasy fight. And I assume we're using the fight assumptions that Inoue is just as devastating at 126 as he was at 118. Otherwise, why even entertain the match up?

    :lol:

    The OP did not make the distinction that the fight was a H2H fight. I'm sure most who read that assumed a 126 Inoue would be fighting a 126 Loma. But, to your point, an Inoue at 126 with the same attributes he possesses at 118 would be a something to see. Don't know if he takes out Loma, but very good match up.

    I mean, it's all to scale. If 118 Inoue KO'd every 118 pounder he has faced, then 126 Inoue with scaled power would likely KO every 126 pounder he has faced. He's been a destroyer in 3 divisions. Lomachenko lumps and bruises very easily. I think Inoue would open up his face. And Lomachenko's been hurt to the body by Campbell, Lopez, and Lopez. We know Inoue's body punching is the best in the bidnezz.

    What bullsh*t.

    What fight were you watching? Lomachenko absolutely went for it in the second half of the fight and won a fair share of those rounds. The kid was even throwing leather to close out the 12th.

    Loma got not balls brother. He turned it up second half of the fight, then in the 12th round Teo landed a huge counter and Loma went back to being hesitant.

    Back to being hesitant?

    Loma landed one of his best punches of the night and briefly backed Lopez up to the ropes in the closing moments of that round. Both fighters were throwing heavy leather in the final minute.

    You are quite the enigma, my man. At times your observations are astute and very much on point, and at others you blurt out dumb sh*t like this.

    Or maybe you just have a stick up your ass about Lomachenko.

    I think Inoue would beat Tyson Fury at 126 as well.
