Loma is P4P number 1 by a considerable distance.

    Lomachenko is Schrödinger's underdog.

    Has enough clout, institutional backing and is favoured enough by the boxing establishment to win consecutive Olympic Gold Medals in a system that's known for being so extremely corrupt that it's been temporarily deleted from existence until it pretends it's less corrupt.

    Has enough clout, institutional backing and is favoured by the boxing establishment enough to get offered a title shot in his second fight, lose, and then get another title shot immediately after a loss in only his 3rd professional fight...

    But apparently has such little clout, institutional backing and is so hated by the boxing establishment that he gets robbed every time he has a close fight :lol:

    Loma stans are uniquely delusional.

    I know we're all supposed to believe the second you go above 200lbs, size doesn't make a difference anymore, but Usyk is beating top guys who are 20-30lbs heavier than him.

    It truly is incredible what Loma has been able to achieve despite being naturally 105 lbs, 57 years old and only having one functional shoulder his entire career.

    I am sorry I didn´t remember Muangsurin off the top of my head. It´s not something I write out every day.
    I know there was a Thai guy in the 70s who won the WBC title in his 3rd fight.

    So I don´t see the contradiction.
    You just disagree on the significance and thats OK. I think it was one of Lomas more significant fights due to the historic nature of it.

    The contradiction is that you didn't remember the guy who set the record, but you think it would have been really significant if Loma would have beaten it.

    I just don't think you consider it that significant given you can't recall the guy who set the record in the first place.

    I can recall the guy, I even know when he won the belt. I know his ethnicity and partially remembered his name.
    The only reason I didn´t fully remember his name is because it´s a silly Thai name which I haven´t written out in years. And why is this? Because it happened in 75 in Thailand.

    Ffs, just look at how often Lomas 3 weight conquest is brought up.
    Regardless, I have said what I think. You disagree then fine, it´s your prerogative.

    People talk far much about his fight with Haney than his fight with Russell.

    As I said before though, I saw a contradiction and had to call it out.

    I've answered this post previously and you've answered my answer so at this point it's moot.

    I think Usyk is WAY more capable of beating a guy his size than Fury is. In fact, No one in boxing is more capable of winning a fight vs someone with no advantages over them than Usyk...which is why he's lb for lb the best fighter on the planet. But Fury has a lot of advantages, and Usyk doesn't seem to be as good as he NEEDS to be to beat someone as big as Fury.
