unfortunately for him, he's a journey man fighter, and will feature in build up fights and that's about that. As someone mentioned he's got pillow fists, not that I'd like to stand there and take them but to a hardened boxer he'll not make much head way
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Genuine super fight this weekend, definitely one that's worth staying up for.

I agree, any opportunity we get to see him is worth staying up for. Pity it's not on Tv.
Loma will go down as one of the best boxers of all time. It's such a shame he isn't as big a box office "star" as others because of the lack of "big names" at his weight and being eastern European, his lack of english etc etc.
But in my opinion, one of the most skillful boxers i have ever seen and will likely ever see, don't know much about Lopez but i expect Loma to dance round him all night and take an easy W.

Be hard to make an argument for anyone against Lomachenko, he's actually frightening and at this stage the aura of him is nearly mythical.

If he spoke english as GiveItToTheShooters points out he would be on Floyd Mayweather level of fame.

I just wish Lomachenko was 5 years younger, not going to be a round too much longer but his performances haven't dipped yet at least.  I see a few trying to say he showed weaknesses against Campbell but I felt he just schooled him without going near top gear.  When you look at what Lomachenko did to two undefeated p4p fighters in Walters and Rigondeaux, it really shows how special he is.  I always felt RJJ was the best I'd seen but I would probably have to give the nod to Lomachenko now, he just does things that you have never saw before.

Fight is in Eir for anyone who has it, legitimately or otherwise.

Fancy another Loma masterclass to be honest. He makes fighters as good as Lopez look like novices.

Don't understand that from Loma at all. Appeared surprised that Lopez was big and fast and he left it way to make before he started working.

Lopez thoroughly deserving but he hardly had to work for that at all. Was basically given a headstart of 7 rounds.

Well well well. WTF. Lomachenko's game plan was all wrong. Not sure what he was doing for 2/3 of that fight. Left it far too late.

Surprising!! From this recent era Floyd is still the best for me. That wasn’t great from Loma.

Watched it again there and I have Lopez winning by an even bigger margin second time around.

Terry O’Connor is in trouble with the British Boxing Board. Never mind the horrendous scoring last night he was also on the phone during the fight!

I see Conlan is finally fighting someone who will hit back, be interesting to see how he does.
