    I wonder if anyone is still going to pretend this guy didn't have a massive size advantage over Loma. He's clearly cutting beyond normal levels.

    Don’t get it. Why do you think there is no way? I think with name recognition there is a good chance. Who else is a bigger name at 140 pounds? Thinks it makes more sense for JT that him going up against Crawford or Spence who could maul him or someone really dangerous on the rise like Boots Ennis.

    You mean when it's not raining, or when the sun barely crack over the horizon during the winter?

    Nah.

    I think Taylor is willing to fight Lopez. However, Lopez is the challenger here and it is Taylor's right to name his terms. And since Lopez lost all the titles now, he has to fight and climb his way up in 140 rather than direct challenge.

    :facepalm: People completely dismissing Taylor's chances at 147, who need I remind you unified a division and is P4P#5 after just 18 fights - Crawford didn't even win a world title until his 23rd fight and blames almost getting KO'd by a Cuban leprechaun half his size on ''inexperience.''

    An inexperienced Taylor beat Crawford's best win up until recently in Postol in just his 13th fight and he bashed up Crawford's now best win Porter good and proper in Porter's own gym when he a mere 7-0 novice and current WBA 147 champ Ugas got dropped and sent to the hospital by Taylor during those sessions too :facepalm:

    What the hell do you think a 7-0 Taylor would've done to the Gamboa a 23-0 Crawford was badly hurt and out on his feet by? :facepalm:


    Taylor has really filled out into the weight since hooking up with his new trainer and S&C team and is huge for 140 now and he's going to be a good sized 147 pounder when he moves up and he has plenty of skill, power and toughness and fought more punchers in 18 fights than Crawford and Spence have in over 60 combined

    Crawford and Spence have barely fought any legit bangers, let alone ones their own size and Crawford was dropped one of the few times he did

    Spence pulls ouch that really hurt faces when he gets caught clean by fighters with average power at best for goodness sake :lol:

    I'm not saying Taylor definitely beats all these guys or even beats them at all but :facepalm: at those who ever so predictably act like it's a foregone conclusion

    And Jaron ''Super Boots'' Ennis is going to spark both Terry and Errol out as soon as he touches their mandible sections after they stop running

    And Lopez is irrelevant now. The bully got bullied by the bullied and is going to have to claw his way back up the rankings in a division against fighters his own size or closer to it if he wants a shot at King Taylor and if the later does decide to hang around I hope he freezes his repugnant ass out and makes him beg on bended knee for it.

    Bad idea for Lopez, he get's ironed out by Taylor @ 140. No doubt in my mind.

    You say MASSIVE. What were the fight night weights? He didn't look bigger than Kambosos at all.

    Steeped in history? Since when? This is another nail in the "Scotland is great bs" I once had a guy ...not Rab Nesbit but close...drive us from Glasgow to Edinburgh. We passed by the swamp that is the site of the "battle " of Bannockburn. The guy was still bragging about this minor 14th century skirmish that had absolutely no impact on Western European history much less world history.

    Couple of good geologists, writers and doctors. Otherwise a soggy, isolated outpost populated by Picts. At least no paints themselves blue anymore.

    I didn't want to go here but I've been provoked.

    Taylor stops Lopez. He had a hard time with Kambosos boxing ability. Taylor is bigger, stronger, faster, and a better boxer. I guess his old man wants kill his career before he is 25.

    Rain is god

    The primitive heathens can't get their head around the concept of Rain Love or the enlightened actually deriving enjoying from rain

    ''Ew. how can someone like something which is wet and cold?''

    These sissies can't handle a little bit of water :facepalm:

    I've had many run ins with these betas over the years

    You give 'em a little squirt with your water pistol and they start hyperventilating :risas3: :facepalm:

    We call their kind ''food'' on the inside

    Here's a song by a Scottish band about the joy and comfort rain can bring into one's life



    And ode to rain by an English band

    Anyone bother to ask Taylor first? I don't think Lopez is in any position to demand a fight with the undisputed champ at 140. Him wanting Taylor at 140 next year is like him wanting to KO Kambosos, it ain't happening.
