    Loma greatest LW of ALL tiMe, don't think so, top 3, No way, top 5, nope, top 10 not yet, top 15, NOOOO!, top 20 he might have a shot at #16 - #20 but i doubt he beats all 5 guys you would rate all time in those last 5 spots in the top 20. It's funny how a can that does well now that everyone can see all his fights and they want to talk about them beating the best ever. makes me laugh.

    Duran is better than any fighter, lightweight or otherwise, that Loma has ever faced.

    So is Buchanan for that matter.

    Oh, I'm pretty sure most here not born in the UK would say Loma is better than Buchanan so you are wrong.

    Duran when pressed folded one. Loma puts excellent pressure on his man....he makes them quit.

    Loma is better than any lightweight Duran faced. Wasn't Buchanan better than any fighter Duran had faced up to that point? But Duran still dominated Buchanan. Laguna was better than any fighter Buchanan had faced. Buchanan beat Laguna. Ortiz was better than any fighter Laguna had faced. Laguna beat Ortiz. Loi was better than any fighter Ortiz had faced. Ortiz beat Loi.

    Buchanan is a bit over rated. He could box but had little power. Loma would stop him too. While Duran was winning the fight with Buchanan, it was a clear KO via Low blow, no doubt about it.

    I didn’t venture an opinion on whether Loma is better than Buchanan or vice versa. I said Buchanan is better than anyone
    Loma has faced.

    After seeing that Campell bout, Duran destroys his body.

    DeJesus gives him hell too.

    No Kovelav was robbed in the first fight Ward fanboy.

    On topic Duran wins by mid round stoppage.

    Lomachenko is a great fighter but he has no chance with Roberto last that fight would be hell for Lomachenko and a k.o in the 8 or 9 assault I think Lomachenko would be put to sleep the same with Mickey Garcia

    I dont mean to be Captain Obvious, but this thread has not aged well for Loma.

    No matter how many times you tell people to be patient and wait for things to pan out every time a big name wins impressively BOOM they are off again.

    I wouldn't be going out on a limb to say 135 is a bit much for Lomo.

    I told the Lomosexuals that Duran was more skilled than Loma.

    But noooo nooooo, look at the pretty ballet footwork that he pulls on Anthony Crolla and Nicholas Walters!!

    I wonder if those with the courage of their convictions to assert that ESB's elder posters were senile and needing of home-care will now have the courage of those same convictions to admit that they were wrong.

    "Benny Leonard? A bum...he didn't even have florescent shoes."
