    He was 37 and put an 8 pound rehydration clause on Loma. He also said the size difference didn't play a part after the fight. The age difference between Loma and Rigo is the same age difference between Canelo and GGG and Canelo and Kovalev, who happen to be Canelo's two best wins. Rigo was past prime (like GGG and Kov were for Canelo) and undersized but he was still undefeated and statistically the least hit fighter in the sport going into the Loma fight. Even the 'moving up two weight classes' can be argued given that Loma had already moved up one himself. Loma started in his mid-20's at 126 and never missed weight, Rigo at 122.

    Brenan and his “catch phrases” that are probably rehearsed infront of a mirror each midnight.

    Lomachenko deserves the same credit Canelo, Golovkin and Floyd got bringing a guy up 2 weight classes.

    You do realize that Rigo was giving up less advantages to Loma than Loma will be to Teofimo Lopez, right? Loma is a natural 126/130 while Lopez is a natural 135/140. Whether either fighter just moved up a couple weight classes or not doesn't change that. Lopez is also 9½ years younger which gives him a huge youth advantage, more than the age difference/youth advantage Loma had over Rigo. In fact, the only few advantages Loma will have over Lopez on paper is skill/IQ, title fight experience, and cardio.

    So, I ask, why should I give Lopez full credit if he pulls off the upset against Loma? By your own standards nobody should because it wouldn't be fair.

    All true and while we're on the subject, Errol Spence, who many are touting as P4P best after Canelo went 12 rounds with Mikey Garcia who was 2 weight classes below him and never looked close to stopping him but Loma made Rigo quit in 6.

    That's a mythical fight, you might as well say that Inoue would stop Canelo if they were P4P or that he'd stop Wilder.

    I think he's lost a bit of his killer rep after old Donaire went the distance with him and I love Inoue.

    That's a dumb way to view boxing imho


    But then again fight fans love to make both competitors seem like they suck

    Despite it being the most high level fight in skill we've seen in....quite awhile

    vs Loma in the same size?
    Most likely then Loma finished him in first 2 rounds.
    Loma was world level amateur top superstar even more superstar than amateur superstar Usyk or amateur superstar A.J were.

    How so? Inoue was stopping all his opponents but then with Donaire he wasn't able to. I'm sure I'm not the only one who noticed and reassessed just how powerful Inoue is. Donaire showed he still has ability but let's not forget how ordinary Rigo made him look. I think the truth is somewhere in the middle. I wasn't one who claimed that Donaire sucked after the Rigo fight and I certainly don't think that Inoue sucked after the Donaire fight. It was just that both those fights made many reevaluate both fighters.

    No we were talking about Inoue being the same size as Wilder. I'd definitely take Loma vs Wilder if they were the same size. What a contrast, the least skilled elite fighter vs the most skilled elite fighter in the world today lol

    So are you saying that you'd give Inoue a good chance vs Loma if Inoue came up to LW?

    Nooooo

    That's way too far for Inoue

    126 it'd be fun but still who knows if even that's a bridge too far
