    I didn't think Rigondeaux would quit either. But Lopez is young, so even if it goes bad for him he shouldn't be too disheartened.

    The big question is obviously whether Lopez is ready for this fight. Stylistically, I think he's a bad fight for Lomachenko- I like power and timing over speed and workrate, in general.

    no one really, but everybody seems convinced that loma will handle business. i think it will be his toughest fight to date. styles make fights and lopez has a funky way of moving, especially off the left hook.

    I think Loma will handle business but I'd never think it will be easy. Lopez is very dangerous and talented. He is bigger and stronger, maybe not faster but there isn't much in it. Loma will need to be on point to win here but I think he can do it. However, if I was purely betting, I'd bet big on Lopez. Definitely Loma's toughest opponent to date excluding Salido.

    great fight, and one of the few i have been really excited about for a while. i think your right about the betting thing as well, loma should be able to use his ridiculous amounts of skill to win, BUT it will be very, very interesting. one of the things that impresses me the most about loma is his determination and ability to adapt to get the job done. the way he cut down linares with body shots was impressive.

    Fair take. I think Loma is going to go through some scary moments, but I believe he will overwhelm and break Lopez down late.

    I was just so amazed how he ate that shot from Linares and acted as if nothing happened I mean that was square and hard

    that shocked the shit out of me

    Lopez is a timing type fighter so I imagine he'll catch Loma at some point but that's never a guarantee with Loma

    if he eats it the same way then all's good

    I will not watch any Lopez fight anymore or read his dads dreams.
    Until he will defeat Canelo. ;)
    In murcia attention might be get even from haters, but I newer will pay any cent to watch guy that had told stuff like this in this YT video.

    lopez is gonna have his hands full! his dad said it best. speed beats everything and loma is pretty fast and can also punch the body.

    Timing is the key. Not power. Lopez has great timing and often thats bad news for guys who like to throw a lot of punches.

    This might be the most reductive thing you've ever posted (which is saying something). If you think that Lomachenko is just the white Amir Khan than i don't know what to tell you. It's tantamount to describing Canelo Alvarez as if he was the Mexican Bobby Czyz or Vinny Pazienza

    well lopez will have to work on his lucky punch! and hope his timing has improved drastically from his last two fights.

    Loma wins it I think
    Lopez feet are too slow and stationary to keep up with his movement, will be hard to set himself to land his big counters as Loma darts around his lead leg, which Lopez sits very heavy on

    His last fight was Commey, who he KO'd with a well timed shot.
