    No, the most naturally talented lightweight is a featherweight in his mid 30s, just because he doesn't have a zero doesn't mean he's not the most talented… None of those guys have the skill of Loma. FACT!

    Easily yes.

    At present all of Haney, Kambosos,Teo, Loma and Garcia have much better records at present.

    Not going to matter though as PBC as usual will have him fighting low level opposition and try Mark it as the LW Wilder for KOing bums.

    I wouldn’t say his power bails him out, he just sacrifices rounds and volume to get the ko. All part of his style

    Who has he fought? Didn’t want anything to do with Loma.

    Yeah, that's exactly what George Kambosos was doing against Devin Haney too.;)

    I wish him and his team has the same level of confidence.

    Unfortunately I think he's just going to continue being a running joke, pretending to be the "other champion" in a division ruled by an undisputed king.

    Difference is Davis was born with a huge punch and almost always gets the ko. Kambosos just wasn’t trying to win

    Yeah, and how many times have we seen the same scenario? Guys with huge power, going for the KO from the opening bell, hoping to walk someone onto something big, or walk someone down, and they have an opponent that won't follow the script, and they end up taking an L. Lucky for Tank, he always will have PBC to bail him out of those pesky Pitbull Cruz like situations. The reality is, he's terrified to get hit, is a brutally overrated boxer, and lucks out because he has power to bail him out of most sticky situations, it's not part of his strategy. That's a bull**** narrative being pushed by his desperate apologists.

    He’s a typical protected fighter. Hasn’t progressed in years and I’m not sure he beat Cruiz. Highly overrated and I hope to be proven wrong. Heck I hope to see him fight a top LW. They match him like he’s a prospect and he’s 28.

    I thought back then he was too "green" to step up to fight the best.

    Loma is a learned fighter. Tank relies mostly on raw talent.

    Raw talent is only useful in rookie days, getting yourself noticed and getting taken seriously by the kind of promotors you're going to need if you're going to have a great career.

    Once you're no longer an "up-and-coming" fighter and you're very much a fixture in your division/s, it's worthless - at that point what matters is that you're effective and to a lesser extent entertaining to watch.

    Tank's wasting his potential by fighting second rate opposition, his talent got him here but now he needs to man up and create a proper legacy.
