    You should do some research. Williams was in completely different weight class when Floyd came out of retirement. Plus he had just lost to Sergio. If the fight would have been made you just would have complained that Floyd is fighting some one coming off a loss and coming down in weight. After retirement he fought JJM and SSM. I liked Paul Williams but JJM and SSM are much betters fights for sure.

    Margarito, Come on man. Most of you guys know damn well that Floyd would school Margo. He is the same flat-footed, non moving fighter you guys claim Floyd cherry picks but since he didn't fight him you bring him up.

    Not too many fighters that were faster than him around his weight class. Are you new to boxing?

    Horrible post!
    People can't do the shoulder roll because it's damn hard to pull off. Broner tried to do it Canelo even tries at times and so do others. It's very effective when mastered like PBF when he used it. If a fighter like comes along that masters the shoulder roll he will be hard to hit and to deal with as well just like PBF was.

    I guess guys being held to career low punch output and connect % when they face him mean nothing right? I guess tons of boxers and trainers commenting about how great his defense is mean nothing right? But you know more than they do right?
    Aren't you the same guy who said Loma would beat SRR PBF Duran and Pea Whitaker easily??? What do you know?

    Margo was slow as **** and easy to hit he wouldn't have won a round against PBF. Williams had long arms but fought dumb not using his height and reach and could be outboxed as Carlos Quintana who was average at best showed you when he beat Williams.

    Not many can stay with him.His usually faster than anyone he has ever fought.Steps ahead and levels ahead and technically superior.Some guys could match him for foot speed and hand speed but couldn’t match him technically.And technical boxers like a Marquez didn’t have the physicality to trouble void.Some who have the athleticism and physical attributes didn’t have the skills.The rest were just too dumb and slow.L O L

    Rigo only throws 5 punches a round. His own defence actually works against his offence. Lol.

    Yeah I know more about boxing than most boxers and trainers. And I don’t appeal to authority. You think I should pay attention to punch stats being tapped in by someone watching the fight rather than seeing with my own eyes? Wow, you’re not even a person. Of course he would beat those guys, their skills are primitive compared to Lomachenko .

    Same thing with Floyd, that’s why he didn’t throw combinations, that’s why he would potshot and retreat. Rigo could actually stand on the inside and make his opponents miss, Floyd gets tagged. Neither are anywhere as good defensively as Lomachenko is, or even Duran for that reason you pointed out.
