    My opinion of Oscar is not the highest.

    I don't think Gambia is chinny. It might not be Brit Level, Mexico Level, Ghana Level or Japan Level, and there's no shame in that, but I wouldn't describe it as chinny. Gamboa, however, has been dropped by

    Aldailton De Jesus
    Darling Giminez
    Marcos Ramirez
    Orlando Salido
    Terence Crawford
    Rene Alvarado
    Robinson Castellanos
    Jason Sosa
    Twink Davis

    And is chinny

    I come from the school of thought that teaches that fighters of relatively equal talent and size can beat each other on any given night and even lesser talented ones can raise their game on any given night and pose enough of a stylistic problem to get them over the finishing line sometimes too.

    Garcia has proven himself so for the Haney hypers to act like Garcia is the one who is unproven when their boy literally hasn't fought anyone with a pulse, couldn't even wobble a shot to smithereens 39 y/o Cuban leprechaun in his only 'step up' fight, and that a fight between them is some foregone conclusion in favour of the completely unproven fighter who can't punch holes in wet cardboard when Garcia hits like a truck and has blazing fast hand speed is comical. When you hit as hard and as fast as Garcia it's a problem and I have no doubt he possesses the speed and power to KO both Twink and Teo if he catches them right as they do to him too.

    Ryan Garcia knocked out an Olympic gold medalist and top title contender in Luke Campbell, but I'm supposed to believe he's sweating Haney, a man he went 50/50 with in the amateurs and can't crack an egg.

    ...okay...

    Dominate? Tank is highly skilled and has the power to stop anyone, Garcia is not an elite fighter yet and maty never become one, Tank is extremely dangerous for anyone.

    Tank and Lopez have the power and hand speed to stop Garcia too.

    If he is man enough to make those fights remember I have called it that they stop him brutally.

    Personally, no. Not at all.

    As a boxer, he was an all-timer.

    One thing I must add is that while I think Cool Hand Luke Campbell is a good boxer he is how can I accurately describe it , he has no special effects whereas if there is one thing Loma, Tank, Lopez and Haney have its special effects. Let’s see if the Instagram champion can man up because if thinks Campbell was a tough fight I dread to think what the others will do to him.

    Your boy E-Spence doesn't have any ''special effects'' but you still you pick him to beat the much bigger, harder punching, tougher, much more skillful, accomplished and proven Clenelo who has proven his worth in four of five weight classes against bigger and better fighters than E-Spence who has literally only fought two world class natural 147 pounders his own size and struggled badly against both.
