    What impressed me most was Lopez's mental toughness. We knew he had power, and we knew he was a sublime athlete. But could he stay disciplined for 12 rounds against a great fighter? There was no way to know until he did it, and he did it exceptionally.

    After not fighting for almost a year and half Lomachenko took around eight rounds to warm up. to me he just looked like he was full of ring rust for the first half of the fight. and even in the later part of the fight he just didn't look like he was on his game. I am not sure how much to credit Lopez for what happened. did Lopez take Loma out of his game. or was Loma just not himself after to long of a layoff. or is he losing his edge because of his age. it will be interesting to see how he comes back from this.

    I used to feel bad for Max Kellerman when all the basketball pundits bashed him for just talking about basketball as a non-expert on the sport but after watching this and previous things like Stephen A covering UFC events, I 100% agree with those critics now. If you’re not an expert in the field, you should not talk about it as if you knew even the basics when you don’t. That’s why shows like this are just nothing but blabbering useless content with no real analysis and just debate and banter for the same of entertainment

A real CHAMPION. ¡Teofilo López! ¡Viva México¡ 🇲🇽

    Loma underestimated Teofimo speed and gas tank. Loma sat back too long expecting Teo to make a mistake rather than forcing a mistake by throwing his hands. Teo came for war and Loma thought he was going to out smart him and gas him out

    How can you/ anyone compare Lomo to the GREAT boxers of our pass? Come on man!!!! This is so ridiculous!!!! The greatest boxer's of our pass ( Ali, Hagler, Sugar Ray, Frasier, Forman, Tyson, Holyfield etc...) had many straight out Wars in the boxing ring and Won significant Championships that solidified them into the Boxing Hall of Fame and that gave them the Rank of The Best Pound for Pound. Lomo is a very Good fighter with a high fighting I.Q. but that doesn't make him the best (and probably a great fighter in time though, which he doesn't have). So people please let's stop comparing him to the great one's of the game. HE'S NOT!!!!!!! Lopez showed that if you NEUTRALIZE Lomo's footwork he's not as a big of a treat as we thought he was. Big and much RESPECT to Teophimo. He did an outstanding job of taking the Belt and becoming the Unified Champion!!!! PERIOD!!!! Let's see what Teo can do from here... Remember 400 amateur fights don't make you a great Professional Fighter!!!! Facts!!!!

    Lopez is a huge light weight. Look at the difference in their foot size alone. One man is small for his weight and the other one is big for his weight. We'll see how good Lopez is when he moves up a weight division or two. I'm not knocking his skill but if he really wants to be a great champion he should stay at lightweight and fight for a few years like Duran.

    Loma did not win 8-11. They were close and lopez was moving forward and making the fight most of the round. Then there were questionable tactics committed by loma. Judges can deduct without the referee's command. I think a 10 point margin is extreme. More like 5-6 margin including deductions.

    400 amateurs and 2 gold medals ... at what weight did Lomachenko win gold ??? Lightweight is only 3 pounds above his amateur and professional Olympic gold medals. Lomachenko was 24 years old fighting against teenage boys during his last run at the gold medal . I'm tired of these fake boxing fan commentors telling us that Lomachenko won rounds 7,8,9,and 2 ! Teofimo dominated every round except 11 and none of them even tell you why they thought to give Lomachenko round 2 except that Joe Tesator tried calling the round for Lomachenko in order to fake an even score at the time

    The thing wos that Lomachenko thought that beyoun numbet 6 round López Will get tire, but what he never thought wos that López still Will have power to answered back at the round 11 or 12, we need to remember that Lomachenko strategy is to make his opponent tire and then knock them down and win, but everything went wrong.
