    Instead of playing passive aggressive games to try and get people to rate Lomachenko, why not just challenge him and prove it in the ring?

    If Tank kept improved post-Pedraza, it would have been the perfect time to fight Loma. But unfortunately he's regressed, dude is fighting 126 pounders or nobodies. But he's also super ****ing young, so he has time to be great, foolish for him to go from that to Loma.

    i wouldnt let him. he is due to outgrow 130 real soon, so it wouldnt make sense to fight his biggest money and legacy fight at a weight you are struggling to maintain. move up to 135, build up the fight by fighting a contender or 2, then fight a loma who has lost a slight step by this point. loma needs to make some moves now. fighting opponents that do nothing to dispel the notion that hes vulnerable at 135 will only make his first eventual loss look like proof of what he has actually been all along. he needs to show his skills against the best competition out there right now, while he can still keep ahead of the pack.

    Then he should pipe down and keep quiet until he finds his manhood and is ready to challenge Loma.

    by the time he is ready, Loma will be over the hill. that seems to be the strategy of many fighters anymore. not just guys around Loma's weight.

    Tevin Farmer is better than Loma according to Tank's coaches Calvin Ford and the other clown



    Ford says let's ''keep it real'' regarding who Loma's fought

    OK let's do exactly that



    I'd bet my life the other clown picked Rigo to beat Loma too and Walters and GRJ

    And at the end of the second vid he says ''GGG's been exposed.. and I always said he's fought guys lighter than him coming up''

    So he's saying Loma hasn't fought anyone and GGG fought guys lighter than him coming up. The irony of this coming from the trainer of Tank who has only fought Pedraza, is a huge 130 pounder weight wise and who weighs more than Loma does in the ring and is fighting a 122 pounder on Saturday after a blown up 122 pounder in Mares pulled out, and Tank's last opponent was a 126 pounder coming up :risas3:

    It's funny cause all the people saying Rigo, Walters, Linares, Walters were gonna beat Loma, are now suddenly saying those weren't top wins. If Davis finds some balls and signs to face the P4P number 1, trust me those haters will do the exact same thing with Davis.

    Lol :lol: Such trash in those videos. The thumbnails are just as bad.

    There is a funny video of Floyd’s face completely changing and stuttering after a reporter asking when Tank is going to fight Loma.

    The only higher-rated opponent Tank is interested to fight right now is Tevin Farmer, who is probably the weakest among 130 lbs titlists.

    Personally, I don't expect Tank to fight Loma in near future. Let him make money fighting lower rank and weightclass boxers. He probably has the talent, but with the amount of experience he got now, he's gone nowhere. And he should watch out for his weight too, don't really think he can maintain it with his lifestyle, partying and such.

    Loma himself said beating Rigo meant nothing, due to his age and size. People who were picking Rigo, were thinking he was still the Rigo from the Donaire fight. He clearly wasn't that in the fights leading up to the Lomachenko fight. In all actuality Rigo was probably 40 something when he fought Lomachenko.

    Davis is 24, and fights once a year. It's not a good idea to fight a well oiled machine like Lomachenko when fighting once a year. The right move would be to wait a couple years. If Loma really wanted to challenge himself he could fight Lopez, or move up and fight Prograis, who would absolutely beat the **** out of him.

    Why?

    Because underneath the bravado and talk he is scared and insecure.

    He doesn't even have to challenge Loma, just people in his actual weight class that are worth a damn. They're BUILDING a fight with ****ing Tevin Farmer. Farmer is decent but that's all, not the sort of fighter you need to build into fighting
