    Alggieri had a 72 inch reach Cambell has a 71 inch reach and used his lead hand constantly as a measuring stick watch how Loma slipped his lead hand after struggling at first, Loma is better at slipping shots than Manny was.

    P4P Loma is far higher than those guys.

    Campbell used his reach well, take a look at how he was using his lead against Loma.

    When do you feel Manny will be too old to fight Loma? When do you feel that fight will lose meaning?

    Chris Algieri has been in w/ the likes of Ruslan (hardest puncher Bradley's ever faced), Spence, and Khan. Algieri is better and more proven than Campbell. Pac overcame the same disadvantages and dominated and shut him out 12 rounds while being an old man.

    Pac has has more intense, exciting fights.

    Lomachenko's skills have me captivated.

    I like Pac. He is entertaining. You never know if the roided up Pac will show up and dominate his opposition or if the non-roided version will show up. The non-roided version had to rely on boxing skills and we saw how that worked against Mayweather. Pac could not do anything. We also saw it against Marquez who timed Pac's lead with his face attack and sent him into another dimension. Zzzzzzzzzz..... zrzrzrzrzr.... zzzzzzzz...

    Pac is good. Was almost certainly aided by PEDs for the middle part of his career. He was susceptible to being outboxed and was on multiple occasions.

    Are you trying to say that the Mayweather and Marquez who fought Manny wasn't roided / PEDed to the balls ? Or you are just writing without thinking ?

    Campbell used his lead hand beter than Algieri did v Manny and he fought better than Khan did v Algieri, wherre he was hurt again because he was more sloppy than Cambell was v Loma, Loma could have beat Khan with his eyes closed.

    You have Lomachenko beating Pac and all these other guys, yet Lomachenko and his father do not share your confidence. They ducked Pac and won't go beyond 135. So no, Lomachenko wouldn't beat anyone on Pac's resume from 140 and up.

    And stop making Campbell out to be some beast. You didn't even know who Campbell was before Lomachenko signed to fight him.

    :lol:

    Pay attention:
    Currently yes, far higher. Loma is clearly the man in his division, the division directly below, and the one below that. No one in any of those divisions are ranked higher. Pac isn't the number 1, or 2 in his division that he campaigns at. Historically not even close, of course Pac is far greater.

    Vargas isn't good, Horn he absolutely dominated you're correct. Matthysse was looking for an easy out and looked timid, fragile and then retired. Broner I've discussed ad nauseum and no one even considered it a real test for Pac.

    And "beat the crap out of Thurman" is a stretch of Mr. Fantastic proportions, that fight was an even fight so stop. Pac took a lot of damage in that fight as well.

    The divisions around Lomachenko are weak and filled with B/C level guys, so being the man there doesn't mean much. It's full of prospects and Gervonta Davis.

    Thurman took a beating in the first six rounds and then had success when Pac was resting because he was gassed. Then Thurman was badly hurt again late in the fight. So yeah, Pac beat the crap out of him. He was just too old to finish him off.

    Lomachenko had a chance to fight Pac, but he knew what would have happened. Pac's fighting and dominating guys in the 160s.

    Broner would hurt Lomachenko. When there's no big power coming back at him, he lets his hands go.
