    I think it starts slow and awkward as many lefty vs lefty match ups do. I think Rigo lands the left over Loma's jab. Loma puts his footwork to use staying off the straight line against Rigo but still pressuring and pushing the pace. Both have shown vulnerabilities on the inside (rigo to Donaire and Loma to Salido) but Lomachenko's size will help him up close. But RIgo is dangerous through out and we won't see the "Matrix" Lomachenko we are all so used to. L0ma takes a decision based on higher workrate and pressure. But there is always that left hand. Who knows if Lomachenko can take that.

    I tried some stuff on youtube with mixed results. I know boxing and writing. Video editing is another matter entirely.

    Frankly speaking it's not that easy to read a paragraph when something is constantly moving above and under it.

    Fair enough, If you right click on the gif and hit show controls you can pause the gif as you read. Hope that helps.

    I think the big difference is Lomachenko's punch out put, angles, footwork, stamina, constantly punching, punching and punching..............Lomachenko said that he does better against southpaws for some reason, southpaws are much easier for him..................he's not sure why..............Rigo does not have a good chin, he gets knocked down, his balance is sometimes off, he has speed, but not the angles, hasn't needed it..............doubt if he can carry his power up, but Lomachenko will not stand in front of him wide open for a counter like Donaire did. Donaire does not have a good defense, Walters knocked him out..........Lomachenko is a little bit bigger than Rigo, but not as much as people are claiming................it's not the size that will matter..............
