Just watched Mayweather vs Emmanuel Burton. I don't think he could have beaten Loma at 130

    It’s funny that when I state facts that:

    Floyd fought on his hometown equivalent to Pac fighting Floyd in general santos city.

    Floyd was allowed painkillers for his hands but Pac wasn’t for his shoulder.

    Pac had an injured shoulder evident by the fact that he asked for painkiller for it and had surgery on it post-fight - they don’t operate on non-injured arms.

    Floyd was caught masking peds and broke the contract by not informing Pac of his TUE application which he never filed for until 21 days after the fight.

    That’s not excuses, those are facts.

    Meanwhile, funny how those facts are excuses but your first “excuse” as to why Floyd didn’t dominate this fight was a “2 year layoff” - sounds like an excuse to me fam.

    And maybe I’m being hyperbole and half trolling, but Loma has legitimate chance to outbox Floyd. Rigo was smaller but you can see how the styles play out.

    Pac is an ambush fighter, he jumps in and unloads, when he did that, floyd simply bent over illegally below the waist and hugged Pac so that they can be separated again and Floyd is back to his preferred distance.

    When Rigo tried that with Loma, it didn’t work cause Loma doesn’t play like that, it’s not a burst, it’s calculated, Rigo bent over but Loma just waited, paused, see where rigo’s Head was now at, and popped it gently. Different styles. I think he’d do the same to Floyd.

    The reach might play a part but loma’s angles and feet can place him in perfect spots to nullify that.

    No these are excuses which some you guys use all time as to why PAC lost the fight in a wide UD. Pac got figured out and countered in the first 60 seconds of the fight and had no answer for FMJ controlling range and distance. As far as Loma, while he is an excellent boxer there is no one out there that will out box FMJ. He has made it a habit of figuring his opponent out and shutting down their offense. According to you guys PAC's use of "angles" would give FMJ trouble and you see how that turned out. I actually think Loma would offer a much more competitive fight than PAC because he has a better ring IQ but in the end Floyd would neutralize his offense and cruise to what you guys would call a boring UD.

    Loma having issues with Linares doesn't bode well for him facing a 130-135 pound Floyd. Mosely would have been a tough night for Loma as well.

    Whats "excuses" about a guy who requested painkiller shots for his shoulder but was turned down, what if Floyd was turned down for painkiller shots on his hands, would he be the same? lol. Get real. What's "excuses" about having a fckin surgery on the same injured shoulder post-fight.

    And what's excuses about Floyd getting caught masking PEDs, why was the TUE issued 21 days after the fact? And not by NSAC? And why wasn't Pac informed?

    These are facts. Everything else you said is drivel.

    And lol at first 60 seconds. Here is Floyd figuring out Pac in the first 60 seconds:




    Look at that amazing jab and "distance control" lmao.

    Dumbo....I sai that Guerrero is when he finally figured it out. That means, he did well.....

    Unfortunately that fight took place more than ten years after leaving 135lbs.

    Ortiz was a sloppy fight. Obviously, Victor Ortiz was simply a gatekeeper and nothing close to elite.

    Loma makes easy work of young floyd at 130-135

    Floyd started boxing at 2,eat and sleep for boxing most of his life. Floyd body and mind have become boxing. Dedicating endless amount of time from your babyhood to master one craft. Floyd had it all,so everyone else. It just needs hard work and dedication. It's possible for all of us,most humans just reject it.

    I guess you didn't watch Loma vs past prime Salido huh? Because watching that fight you can see there's no way he beats a 130 Mayweather

    Hey Idiot, it's not hard to see he had an easy time with all those south paw smh. It was dumb of u to even mention those fights in the first place. When any orthodox fighter fights a south paw, it's a usual thing to have some issues with them starting out in a fight, because ur not accustomed to fighting south paw. Your use to fighting other orthodox. So this assumption of Mayweather struggles against south paw is stupid. Cause when u look at his record against south paw fighters, he's underfeated. Either he beat them by wide UD or KO'ed them.

    Blah blah you're bringing up other points not even related to topic, home cooking, pain killers ... obviously just hating and trolling. Floyd never beats anybody in your eyes.

    Floyd would walk straight through Loma and serve him up something vicious
