    Crazy that ppl would even watch that crap, after he looked like a toddler vs a Floyd that toyed with him to extend the fight a bit.

    So nobody watched Lomachenko get schooled?

    I saw a lot of people elsewhere concede Loma lost but were bellyaching about the cards. I watched it twice. I have no idea where this is coming from. Giving him anything more than three rounds would be extremely generous. Loma clearly won round 11. You can make a case for round 8 and 10 but those aren't clearly his either.

    lol i watched the entire thing, people was complaining why wasnt loma throwing any punches in the early rounds and as a man who has followed and studied the history of boxing, i will tell you its because Loma CAN NOT AND DOES NOT know how to fight off the back foot. That attribute is what makes a fighter like floyd mayweather the best fighter of all-time along with ali. In boxing when you move up weight classes you wont be able to overpower guys like you did at lower classes. These bigger fighters will start backing you up and pressuring you( see canelo/floyd), if you know how to fight of of the back foot you can become unbeatable because bigger fighters cant punk you with their size and smaller fighters wont hurt you( because you can outbox them). Loma as much i enjoy watching his fights would get koed by floyd, and floyd is not really a ko puncher. But if we are talking Floyd at lightweight he destroys loma inside of 10 rounds. Tonight we saw a bigger man( lopez beat a smaller man loma), but if loma could fight off the back foot like floyd did to canelo along with diego corraless and jose luis castillo for example than the size would not make a difference
