    Loma is very skilled, of course. But his style is also very aesthetic, and he's getting overhyped as a result. Besides, there's more to boxing than pure skill.

    Only way Loma loses "against current comp" is he goes way out of his weight class

    Didn`t Manny lose one of his early fights also?

    Linares can`t take punches above 135, Loma doesn`t have welter power.

    Why do you give him more of a chance vs Morales and Barrera than Marquez? Marquez was at his worst vs boxers. I give Loma a good shot.

    Manny wasn't a 26 year old former Olympic veteran.

    26 year old Pac was busy fighting guys like Marquez, Morales and Barrera a couple of times sometimes back to back.

    Pacquiao was Loma age when he was a lightweight he didn't stay in the division long though.

    Ledwaba was faster than Linares. He was faster than Pacquiao. He was faster than just about anybody who could lace them up. Dude was blazing.

    People forget how versatile Barrera was. He could really do it all. Loma doesn't like the be pressured. Barrera would cut off the ring and rough him up.

    Marquez was a much better counter puncher v Manny than Barrera was.

    Barrera caught Pac on counters too. But he didn't hit hard enough to get Pac's respect so he walked through. Barrera would bring the fight to him.

    Also, Marquez has an entire career besides the Pacquiao fights. Most people here have never seen or heard about of any his fights besides the Pacquiao fights. But if they want to go ahead and watch some of his other fights they can go ahead on watch them on youtube. There they will see that Marquez cannot take the lead and cannot handle pure boxers. He needs you to be the aggressor.

    Ledwaba didn`t throw fast combo`s like Linares or Gary Russell Jr, he just moved his head a lot more, I don`t know if that`s why he looked so fast to you, his hands didn`t look that fast really.
