    All time greats like Duran, Floyd, and Chavez are not struggling with Linares and going 12 with Pedraza.

    So you can stop now insulting their names and comparing Loma when he's clearly not in that class.

    10IQ thread
    - Loma had a serious shoulder injury, only started hitting the bags again in the middle of October
    - Loma has not fully recovered from the injury as was shown by his lack of right hook and uppercut
    -Loma wasn't trying for most of the fight, he was basically strolling along landing counters and feinting
    -He stepped up the last two rounds and it was visible that he absolutely dominated Pedraza
    -Pedraza landed 10% of his punches
    -He looked like poo vs Marriaga as well because he knew he didnt have to be at his best, just stroll through.

    Floyd had many boring performances brudder. Don't be hating. All top elite boxers had some tough nights at the office.

    Prime Floyd went life and death with JLC. Who kept getting knocked out when he repeatedly challenged for domestic Mexican titles. So you're argument is flawed.

    Lol! They are hilarious aren’t they? :lol:

    A near shutout, title win, scored two knockdowns in the 11th and did so coming off a layoff from a major shoulder surgery. And some how his stock drops in H2H matchups :D

    Hey... At least he dropped the guy twice AS WELL as out boxed him and didn’t need 10 count conspiracy theories for an explanation as to why he got outclassed. Lol

    This is next level stupid.

    If you don't know that Castillo was several levels better than Linares and Pedraza, then I can't help you.

    No, I'm not impressed that he went 12 with Tank's son.

    The JLC from the first Floyd fight, would have beaten Lomachenko tonight.

    Maybe so, but he's not wrong. He repeatedly got KO'd when challenging for Mexican titles.

    Anybody would have believed Loma just beat up a road sweeper..

    This was a unification fight? Against another world champion, right? That Loma won nearly every round and dropped his opponent in?


    Or I'm never eating my Nanna's "special brownies" again, they are far too strong if I imagined all that.

    Perhaps I dont know. He wouldnt be favored. But that guy came with a strawman. Pedraza was beaten before and so what. JLC was repeatedly beaten in his prime by domestic Mexicans. I mean Pacquiao would have eaten him alive.

    **** happens.

    You keep taking those L’s son, must be a very horrible year for you. Ogodad aka Akbhar.

    Boxing math doesnt work, too many variables involved.
