Nostradamus like prediction and you haven't been seen since :lol:
I had to catch a replay of the fight. The fight went mostly how I expected, but Teo was bigger and more confident than I expected. It certainly wasn’t a close fight though. If you could see me now you’d see how little I actually care about the decision.

Teo fought better than I expected, and I didn’t think he was that much bigger than Lomachenko.
With that said I didn’t think it was a close fight, I thought Teo looked like a confident heavy bag. When the scores were read out I thought that 119-109 was a bit wide for Loma though. Loma didn’t throw anything in the first few rounds and his punches clearly didn’t have much affect on Teo, but Teo was eating punches and punching arms. Loma didn’t look interested, I thought he won easily but I also thought going into the 11th that he should retire after the win, as he clearly doesn’t have that fire back.

I half expected to see that the wrong name was called out with the result being overturned when I came on here, but apparently boxing judges are just that poor. I had Teo up 4-2 after 6, but going into the later rounds I stopped scoring as it was that one-sided.
Teo is a physical specimen, I hope he can add some more skills to his physical ability and clean up at 140 (he clearly drained hard to make 135, he looked like a middleweight). I’d like to see Teo versus Tank, I’ve got Teo in that one.

Loma is the greatest fighter ever, unfortunately he peaked in 2009. He has been boxing for a long time, his disinterest and Teo’s confident posture really swayed these judges so I’m not that fussed about him losing the decision. I think the Campbell and Linares fights were closer than this one, but that’s boxing. Teo stayed focused, threw a good variety of punches with explosive power and was never fussed about getting outboxed. Landed some good body punches, and most importantly he stayed confident. Loma’s defense and finesse is still absolutely ridiculous, the way he can avoid everything while sitting in the pocket and landing at will on a guy with all the physical advantages...

Man, what a night. Always love seeing an underdog come through. Lopez looked so brilliant. IDK how Lomachenko can win a rematch. If he starts more aggressive, he's risking getting stopped. Pretty sure that's the reason why he wasn't the normal Lomachenko. I swear I think he got a little shook in that first round off a hook. ESPN just seemed to only post his highlights, and Andre Ward with that ridiculous scorecard.
If he rematches he simply has to throw caution to the wind and risk getting stopped. His only success came when he kept the output high and threw hands, when he’s not doing that then Lopez reach, hand speed and power with that jab just keeps him tamed.

I wouldn’t mind seeing a rematch if Lopez intends hanging around the weight class but it’ll be a repeat if Loma goes in there with the same mindset.

thinks Loma won the fight

also thinks Loma should retire

:rofl
What don’t you understand about that? You’d see that before the fight I was saying that Teo’s trash talk was hopefully going to give Loma his fire back for boxing. It didn’t, that doesn’t mean he didn’t easily outbox Teo.
You look at Teo’s energy, his lack of concern at getting combinations landing on him, his confident posture after he had clearly lost the rounds.. those things influence judges, and that’s the dominant energy you want to see in a champ.
Lomachenko looked like he was taking a walk in the park, he had the posture of a loser despite outboxing Teo with ease. He was doing a job in there, while Teo was living his passion, his dream. I’m happy for him and I’m not upset that he got the decision, even though as a boxing fan it was just another atrocious decision. I hope Teo understands all his flaws as a boxer, against someone who can hurt him he can’t just eat five punch combinations like that.

From memory the second, the fifth, and then the last six rounds. If anyone wants to pull out any of those rounds to actually analyse then cool, I wouldn’t expect anyone here to want to see they’re wrong though.

He gave round 12 to Loma. :lol::lol::lol:
The second? :lol:

The fifth? :lol:

The twelfth? :lol:

For fuck's sake get your eyes checked!
It's just fucking strange isn't it, Loma's biggest nuthugger pretends he didn't watch the fight live.

I reckon he's been twerking that nipple of his a tad too much leading up to the fight and the infection's messed with his brain.

He coulda just said that Lopez was too good and too big on the night and that Loma will make the necessary adjustments in a rematch. But no, he's here telling us Loma won 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 11, & 12. :rofl

Yawn, I just rewatched the 12th. Lopez landed his best head shots of the whole fight, and very clearly lost the round. You do know that punches landed on gloves, air and posturing don’t count as scoring punches right? You do know that Teo’s punches aren’t worth 3 Loma punches each right? You do know that Teo doesn’t get a round for looking confident right? You do know that Teo doesn’t win the round by simply not falling right?

If anybody is serious about analysing the fight, we can go through your round of choice to look at what actually landed and how many landed. Not a close fight at all. This reminds me a bit of the first Bradley-Pac fight, where narrowly missed punches were scored as landed and Pac’s punches automatically counted for more because of reputation of power and his confident posture (while Bradley was swaying). I’m not at all surprised that people still don’t know how to score a fight.

Reality? Look at a round closely with me.
Rational argument? People throwing a party because a fighter lost a decision isn’t an argument of any sort.
I’m open to changing my mind about any round, we can go through it slowly and talk about it.
Idiosyncratic? Absolutely, I know boxing far better than anybody else here obviously.
