    I think it's clear now. I like Kambosos but Tank is all wrong for him, Tank probably stops him. Tank beats Lopez. Loma is too small. Ryan is too fragile. Haney has no power. Lopez still stands the best chance but I think Tank beats him.

    Edit: in light of Lomas shoulder injury vs Lopez and the way he manhandled Comey, I may have spoke too soon about him being too small.

    Loma back in the top 5 p4p soon.

    Davis hasn't made 135 in over a year and he won't be able to get down 135 again. Just let it go. He's a 140 lb fighter.

    At 135, it's between Kambosos, Haney, Garcia, Loma and Diaz at this point.

    A year is nothing in times of covid, fighters take 2 years off like it's a 3-month break.

    Also, isn't Tank's next scheduled fight at 135?

    Tank needs to stay at 135. Josh Taylor is too big.

    I eat my words. Looks like the fight is at 135.

    Let's see if Davis can make weight.

    :dogpile:


    That is why Tank is ducking him for the past few years ? Even his fanboys admit that

    Based on what exactly... beating a one-legged glass-jawed octogenarian garden gnome in Gamboa? How about Kambosos is the best... since he just beat supposedly the best?

    Can't wait for Stank to get laid out cold so everybody can make threads talking about how much of a hype job he was. I mean, the clues are already there, he was getting soundly outboxed for quite a long stretch by a thoroughly average boxer in Mario Barrios. I'm telling you this just so you won't be surprised when it happens.

    He could be, but imo that is yet to be seen. We'll see how good he looks against Pitbull cruz next week who is a pretty solid opponent.

    It was a bit concerning how he left it so late to take out Barrios but it was a big step up in weight and the size difference was pretty apparent. I think Barrios size advantage befuddled him until he figured him out.

    I thought Barrios was winning but eventually Tank Davis's talent started showing and he got to him with big shots in the end.

    He showed he can be outboxed but he also showed resilience and toughness. His toughness and strength impressed me the most that night.

    I'd like to see Davis vs Lomachenko but that probably will never happen. Which is a shame because that's exactly the type of fight which boxing needs right now.

    Lopez was supposed to be the best and still would have been hailed as the best if he had dropped the belt and moved on.

    Well Lopez had a bad night just as every elite boxer has had throug out their pro careers. Tank might have a bad night next week too, so lets just hold back and play the waiting game till then.

    Any chance of him fighting any of these guys and proving it.

    He looks the best based on the eye test but he could have fought them one by one and created a real legacy @ 135

    Loma is the only man who stands a chance against Kambosos

    Before last night I would have said Teofimo is #1 and Tank is #2, but now I gotta I agree with you.

    Give me a break. Kambosos won by SD.
