He's a great fighter, dude.Looking at a lot of post fight interviews with the media, boxing trainers etc. there now seems to be a consensus that Lomachenko is the best fighter in boxing. Some are saying he is pound for pound number one, and the others seem to be saying "He is the best, but he hasn't fought enough big opponents yet" (essentially that he is the p4p #1 in waiting).
Where is he on your pound for pound list?
@Pedderrs he has only had 8 fights? Remember I said pound for pound within 10 fights? He might not quite get there by that time for everyone, but he couldn't help that Rigo ducked him and that he had to chase Walters up a weight division and into a corner to get that fight. Get Salido out of the way then dominate Pacman in his next two fights, it will be hard not to call him p4p after 10 fights.
Gonzalez, Ward, Kovalev, Pacquaio, Estrada, Crawford, Canelo, Golovkin, Rigondeux, Thurman.Really? Who would you have ahead of him? I'd have thought any lingering doubts of him being P4P were put to bed over the weekend
its hard to score a pro bout based solely on an amateur match, taking in count amateurs are just like sparring matches,,, plus just the 3 round rule, plus the gear,talking about that time of course 2009 etc, i do think it would be an interesting match, Valdez percentage of KOs its an interesting factor, nevertheless his foot work isn't as great as Loma being the supreme advantage of him, well, definitely a close fight and definitely not a fiasco ala Loma WaltersNot really, Valdez is very predictable and orthodox, until he learns to vary the tempo of his offence then Lomachenko vs Valdez will just be a repeat of the domination in their amateur contest.
He's the best boxer nowadays for me, so I'd say he's the p4p number one in my book. I probably wouldn't put him at first if I ran The Ring, because his resume probably doesn't make it clear enough (yet), but I don't care he's the best.He's the best fighter in the sport, that means p4p number one. Many now hold that opinion. Ward and your guy are the only others in the discussion, and I don't think anyone can honestly say that they think those guys are more talented than Lomachenko.
I remember the hype around his last fight.
Nonsense, he put on the greatest athletic performance of the 20th Century and I'm only half joking. This gives you a very good idea with the time intervals of how badly Secretariat smokes modern athletes, training, nutrition and performance enhancing drugs.Should get off the high horse, he ain't all that.
