    And who has Loma fought that's on the level of Barrera, Marquez, Morales, Cotto etc?

    Linares perhaps at a push but he put Lomachenko on his arse and got starched in 1 round 6 months later....

    I prefer watching Loma's skill set over Pac's. Loma is one of my favorite fighters to watch currently. I think at this stage, Loma is far higher in a P4P ranking sense. Historically, Loma doesn't touch Pac in a P4P sense obviously.

    Loma would have to fight Manny at a higher weight than Cambell was, and Manny has welter power, Linares got destroyed when he moved above 135.

    Both of them are exciting to watch. It depends on your taste and preference.

    If you like to see courage, gallantry, explosive quick power hitting style, you'll love Pacquiao.

    If you like high level boxing technique, tactics, deceptions and tricks as one combined artwork, you'll love Loma.

    Ducked? Where do you get that from?

    It's not considered sportsman like in Eastern Europe to beat up old men like Pac.

    Watching pac destroy elite opponents that had real size advantages over him was much more entertaining than watching Loma surgically dissect over matched opponents with debatble size advantages

    6 inches in reach is debatable?

    Chris Algieri was much bigger than Pac. Size difference was greater than Campbell and Lomachenko.

    Pac didn't struggle and registered 6 knockdowns.

    Pac. Pac in his prime is one of the most entertaining boxers ever. He's not quite the same now but, for example, the Thurman fight was pretty good.

    Far higher?

    Pac shut out Vargas. Then he won at least 8 or 9 rounds against Horn. Then he shut out and KO'd Matthysse. Then he shut out Adrien Broner and beat the crap out of Thurman.

    Pacquaio. He's explosive, hot blooded violence with science added on top.

    As much as I like Loma, he'll never have that same aura.

    Are you sure it's not that he is afraid he may not beat an old man?
    It is not normal in Asia to run away from a fight like Loma did.
    Fact is, Loma needs 8 Division Championship to even EVEN out with the Pacman.
    I doubt he can get 8 Div champ even when he gets older than Pac....
