    What a fight!

    Who’ve you got and how?

    Loma is lb for lb number 1 in the world but could be a decent size difference come tonight.

    If Lomachenko boxes how he did against Campbell he loses in my opinion. However I expect him to raise his game and put on a show.

    Lomachenko 116-112 or thereabouts.

    I thought it was free on Fite TV but is apparently a tenner.

    Yeah Fite TV sort of runs of a PPV model but normally cheaper than your usual options.

    I don’t think the standard of performance against Campbell is a concern. It’s a different style of opponent with different physical attributes. Campbell uses active jab with his feet and changes of level to disrupt opponents timing.

    Teo boxes from the Philly shell, doesn’t use his feet as well defensively and is easier to get close to. Loma has to be careful with his entries and exits, he can’t square up and switch off or he could get timed. I think Loma will turn Teo regularly and pepper him as fight goes on. Teo is a different type of counter puncher to Campbell, he looks for the right shot but in singles and doubles, IMO he doesn’t throw enough combinations to unsettle Loma and he has shown nothing inside.

    Teo is also very basic in his set ups when leading off, at this stage he is a counter puncher and a limited one at that. All in my opinion of course, he has growth for loads of improvement but he’s way to green for Loma.

    Lopez via knockout, the boy is special and he has elite power.

    Can't see Lomachenko staying away from him.

    I could be proven wrong but the hyperbole around young talent now and the throwing around of words like ‘special’ without them actually proving that is some of what is wrong with modern boxing.

    I also don’t think Teo has elite power. Tommy Hearns, Julian Jackson and Gerald McClellan had elite power. He’s a good talent, nothing more IMO.

    If I’m wrong, I’ll be back on to apologise :)

    I'm going for Lomachenko to outclass and give a stellar performance in beating Lopez. He will take it on the cards or even stop Teo late on with an accumulation of shots to body and head.

    We may have seen the best of Lomachenko but I'm going for him to produce the goods tonight against a dangerous and talented fighter.

    I've got Fite TV on my Firestick now, is it right that you can buy it and watch the fight at any time?

    I'd sooner not get up to watch it and would rather watch it in the morning when I wake up.
