    If he fights and beats another dozen or so top 10 fighters, probably will be. He seems on a trajectory to the HOF, it seems already. The question of how many years he has left and what achievements he can make in that time is what would need to be examined/predicted.

    :lol: I just saw a creepy pic of Oscar, and it reminded me of Jack Nicholson in the Shining coming through the door, so I erased the background to replicate it to an extent.

    He's set multiple world records and he is a pound for pound number one fighter. There have been far far lesser fighters in the HOF so that's not even a question. It's not even a question that he is an ATG at this stage with his resume and achievements. It's unparalleled and then you factor in the eye test and the esteem he is held within the boxing world. It's absurd to think that he need another ten fights to be considered an all time great, you have Floyd considered an ATG at 130 based on the eye test and beating Diego Corales. Any double Olympic gold medallist is usually considered an ATG before they turn pro. Who is deciding if he is an ATG?
    The only question/debate from here is if he is THE All-time greatest. Many knowledgable people in the boxing world are already asking that.

    He's already 10-1 in title fights, is tied for the fewest fights ever to win a world title, and is the fastest to titles in three weight classes. He's done it vs a wide range of styles and a high level of competition.

    If he wins see more title fights and gets good names in there (especially Mikey), he's pretty much there.

    Isn't being an ATG based on who you beat rather than breaking records? Let's keep in mind he was 26 when he started his career. Not 18. I do think he'll be an ATG when it's all said and done, but he definitely needs to beat more than Mikey to be an ATG.

    I think Loma is a very special talent. By what standard are you judging him? He hasn't reigned as a champ of a division for a decade or had a run of title defenses. He is a very good fighter that has hit the ground running in his pro career and is fighting above what his pro experience should be but, I can't call him an ATG for that. In my opinion, if he keeps on this very unique and impressive trajectory, he will easily be n ATG. I can't call him that yet.
