    Both Errol and Josh were former unified World class champions but are also quite beatable by their latest performances. It's the perfect matchmaking for Lomas team

    If Lomachenko moves up and beat Taylor and Spence, he's a certified pfp ATG top 5

    And if Loma loses, well it doesn't matter. It proves he has the mentality of a great

    I like Lomachenko but he would get hurt by Spence far too small.

    Spence is 154 now so that’s a big stretch, but Taylor is actually a winnable fight. I like Taylor a lot but all he really does is set up shots against come forward guys. I don’t think he’d get much going against a mobile Loma. Smart way to get Loma on top of the hill again.

    When Loma loses it never matters it seems.

    Not Loma, it should be Haney to target those two for his own legacy and Ryan in the other thread.
    He has the size and dimensions while the two at heir last performances.

    Won't happen, as Josh Taylor will never fight at 140 again, he's going to 147

    Similar story for Spence as he's going to 154 after Crawford

    Bud has far more reach and power than Loma, no way can Loma compete above lightweight, Spence is a huge welter and would destroy Loma, Josh is too big too.

    140 would be like Loma's 7th weight division had he turned pro around the same age as so many of his North American peers and it would be like his 11th if he had turned pro at the same age as Clenelo who lets not conveniently forget, like so many of these multiple weight greats from those shores like Roy, Toney, Mosley, Tarver, Morales to name but a few (and obviously Floyd who 100% was on PEDs) jacked himself silly with roids to help him compete against bigger men even though he's giving away way less weight and reach at 175 than a clean PED free Loma is routinely at 135.

    Like 2lbs and 2'' max against Kovalev and 3-5lbs and 1.5'' against Bivol. Those kind of physical disadvantages don't even register for Loma

    Even though Loma is giving away way more weight and reach at 135 that Clenelo is at 175, and hasn't had to cheat with PEDs to help him bridge the gap to compete against bigger opponents at higher weights, he's still not weakening his opponents with catchweights and rehydration clauses and he doesn't have the ginormous safety net in place of having the judges in his pocket to wave their magic wands and transform his Ls into Ws either.

    What's the most Crawford has ever been outweighed and the largest reach disadvantage he's been at in any of his world title fights? Surely it's a huge amount like 2-4 divisions and just under 6" seeing as he's in his third division now (and it's his third despite turning pro way earlier than Loma), right?

    Wrong. Big wrong. The most he would've been outweighed would be roughly one division and even then that would be incredibly rare. There might possibly be one world title fight where he was outweighed by a bit more than that but unlikely giving how much he rehydrates

    And as for reach? He's literally never been at a reach disadvantage even once in any of his title fights. He's usually the bigger guy and at worst, even in his third division, his natural weight, he's roughly the same size as his opponents.

    He looked the same size as Spence not 2 or more divisions smaller. When have we ever seen in the ring even at 147 and thought to ourselves that he looks outsized or much smaller? Never

    I think he needs to face Beterbiev at 175 or Benavidez at 168 to prove himself and even then he would still have a reach advantage over the former and only be giving away half an inch against the later :lol:

    Let's see him have to try and overcome those kind of huge physical advantages for a change that Loma routinely does, and overseas in his opponent's backyards for a change like Loma, and in addition to that against big/huge punchers who hold those kind of huge physical advantages over him because as of now I can only think of one legit puncher he's fought his size and he got dropped by them even though they're C level.

    Loma is a dwarf at 135lb.

    Look how small Loma is compared to Bud in my avatar pic and Spence is bigger than Bud!
