    Assuming 135-140, who takes it?

    I would still take Garcia, he knows he can take Lopez's shots and get the right hand in.

    Mikey does the same thing that he did against Spence. Shells up and goes into survival mode. However unlike Mikey, Loma had him figured out, grew some balls and actually won the lion's share of the last 6 rounds, he didn't shell up and do everything in his power to not get KO'd.

    I hate to bear bad news but Mikey is currently eating his way into Adrien Broner permanent welterweight status since Spence. They would have to fight at 154.

    That Spence fight was a one off. Usually Mikey is a game fighter. I dunno what he plans on doing at 147 but he should have stayed at 135, its white hot right now. Welter is a dead division full of duckers.

    Loma didn’t move up 2 weight classes to fight Lopez. He fought scared for 6 rounds against a guy in his own weight class.

    Really? Lipinets and Broner are both 140. He went back down for a one off against Easter, then back up to face Spence was a bridge too far. Well Loma probably shouldn't be at 13 to start with, and Lopez was massive and clearly a Light Welterweight in there tonight, arguably a Welter. He's not long for 135.

    mikey beats everyone under 147, including teofimo. but like willie said, he would need to get back on rabbit food for 6 months, instead of the 5 daily meals of mexican food his current sacrifice requires.

    Its a compelling matchup if we're talking the Garcia of 4 years ago.

    Not much of a question at this point
