    For the undisputed lightweight championship.

    Who wins? And if Lomachenko wins, where does he rank among the best lightweights of all time?

    Lomachenko wouldn't rank top 10 at LWs. There's not the competition to keep up with a division that deep. He'd give most of them a run for there money.

    And he'd absolutely pummel Commey

    Lomachenko should move down or up.And when there will be really good opponents in that division, come again here.Now it's just losing his prime time.

    Lomachenko around the 8th-9th round. Commey is a warrior so I believe he either goes completely out or his ref/corner step in to save him from the pummeling.

    So... the IBF ordered Lopez vs Comney two weeks ago....is Fimo just flatly turning that opportunity down? Is the kid just a train wreck mentally with his family and being exposed by the Jap?

    i'd like to see Comney drill Lopez (or vice versa) and really set this unification up nicely.

    Loma cements P4P#1 status after taking out the winner in impressive fashion.

    I can't see Loma stopping Commey. If anyone gets stopped I think it's Loma. Comment is a massive, tough, and big punching LW that enters the ring as a JMW. I just can't aee a one-sided beat down.

    Commney would be Lomaschenkos best opponent as professional so far (apart of Rigondeaux, who got physical outmatched and maybe Walthers). Therefore is he just at the bottom of the top 10 pound for pound.

    I would be stunned if Commey stopped Lomachenko. He's big, hits reasonably hard-- he can dig, but let's not pretend he's the second coming of Roberto Duran--but he's also not especially fleet of hand or foot. He'll struggle to land anything upstairs all night against Lomachenko.

    On the other hand, I could see a cuts/frustration stoppage late for the Ukrainian.

    Commey is a solid B level fighter who would get wrecked by Loma.

    Mannn i wanted to see Lopez take him on.

    GRJ, who I think is the most physically talented of all the featherweight champions, is also a superb win. The kid (Loma) can only fight who is available and willing. Take Crawford, for example. Personally, I think the kid is terrific but his best win is against a faded Gamboa or the solid-if hardly spectacular Viktor Postol. I would submit that the Walters/Linares/Russell trifecta is superior to anything on Craw's CV.

    You mean Russel? Who has he defeated before their fight? What he did afterwards doesn't count, but only what he achieved till that point and there was his record very padded (like Pasqual when he fought Froch, whos record wasn't impressive as well) and he was protected. Just as was their fight very close, as Russel had the higher output (threw a higher number of punches), so that he won 4 - 6 rounds.

    Linares was very faded and not at his best division. While he sended him down and the scores were about even, but he was still a cherry pick. Abril and Garcia were better.

    Though Gamboa was outmatched too physical and was outboxing Crawford, epscially dominated the first half at will and stunned him more often than vice versa, he just couldn't take a hard punch and went always down when he was going for the kill, similar as Cunningham in the first Adamek fight. And against Postal it was very close too. But he has also Idongo, who was like the other two undefeated and he unified that division, but did 5 defences in row. He is himself undefeated, while Lomaschenko lost vs. a leftover of Gamboa and Garcia (both outclassed Salido).

    Lomachenko won 8 rounds against Russel who, as I mentioned previously, is even money or better against anyone under 130lbs and was before he fought Loma. Have you forgotten, moreover, the battering Loma was giving GRJ in that final round? If you consider that fight close, that's your problem.

    As for Linares, if lightweight--where he was a champion and considered the top fighter at the weight not named Mikey Garcia--is not his best division, then what in the hell is? Similarly, in what parallel universe is fighting the consensus second best fighter at the weight class a cherry pick?? I noticed, not surprisingly, you neglected to include the injury Lomachenko suffered in the Linares fight. Abril? Please. Lomachenko would mop the floor with that kid, and we both know it.

    Thanks for pointing out that Gamboa (arguably Craw's best win) was--in your words-- dominating the first half of the fight. So an older, blown up lightweight, who has done absolutely nothing of note since that fight, was dominating Craw before the KO?? Kind of proves my point that Loma's resume is stronger, no??.The Salido fight could have easily been scored a draw in Loma's second professional fight. Funny how so many people forget that.
