Lomachenko and Marrioga

obviously not making a pick as the odds are outrageous...but I have to say this is exactly what I hate when a promotion hitches its wagon to one team...

ESPN is falling over themselves to love on Lomachenko...

I get it but how about a little impartiality

If the NFL network openly rooted for the Patriots it would be not tolerated.

The ref jumps in anytime there is inside fighting...god forbid Loma gets hit...

I do not blame Salido for not agreeing to fight him again...

and now Teddy Atlas is saying Salido cheated by elbows and low blows...they have penalties but does not mean he cheated.

Meanwhile he acts like an ass and disrespects his opponent after he knocks him down

He is a great fighter as long as he is the only one stepping on peoples toes...He is being very protected right now

Loma has a cut...which will mean nothing anymore...Vit K will clot it up really quickly and he is complete control...

but the fact he sits there and does a rabbit knock on the door to the top of his head is just awful.

He is trying to humiliate his opponent and this is a bad look for him...

Make no mistake he is winning

I agree with almost all you said. Salido did fight a dirty fight but I think he would have won regardless. Loma is fighting a lot of nobodies time to step up to RIGO and let see how he handles a technically sound fighter offensively and defensively who has some pop.

Loma has fought nobodies. Seriously!!!

I love you bro but I do not agree with that statement!

I love the fact Loma has fought almost exclusively champs.

Salido is a different animal only because of his heart. He is only a club level boxer (which is why he gets knocked down but not hurt) but a world class fighter.

He is Rocky like to me

I am obviously not the biggest Loma fan. I think Russell gave him all he can handle and the guy doesnt seem to have intention on fighting RIGO.

Not a fan at all, showboating is one thing but he takes it to a whole new low, almost painful to watch at times.
On the plus side, one day, somewhere down the road, a beating awaits him, hopefully a vicious uppercut KO in response to one his top of the head taps.

Boxing probably the only sport I enjoy the showboating in. Makes for a more entertaining fight IMO. Plus like Mr Nascar said it makes you pick sides as its much easier to root against someone you dislike. In the end it'll help promote a fight.

I can't believe the farce of a fight between Connor and Floyd is garnering much more attention than a real legit fight between Canelo & GGG. Should be the other way around but I guess the showboating generates interest and sells tickets.

PEACE

Plus HBO has a vested interest in their fighters as they always seem to be pumping up the Lomachenko's, Choclatitos, Bud Crawfords of the world.

To the casual fan like myself I start thinking these guys are the best ever and I never even hear of the showtime stable of fighters who are probably just as good.

PEACE
