    Loma UD 12 119-108, 119-108, 118-109 over Campbell. Floored Campbell in final round. Now holds 3 world titles.

    This was a good fight. Campbell was able to use his height and reach advantage pretty well to keep Lomachencko off of him, but ultimately in the end Loma was too fast and crisp for him. I really think Lomachencko needs a fight with Pacquiao at this point. He is a superstar now and I want to see him in a fight of the decade type situation.

    Arum has been looking down divisions for future fights for Loma, rather than up. If you look at Linares and Campbell both were huge and long lightweights were about 5'9" to 5'10", Loma gave up tons of height and reach to them and had to walk through fire to break them down. At this division he is really fighting men a full size larger than he is, so aside from the last belt he may give up his belts and return down to 130.

    Supposedly Davis can't make 130 anymore and is going up to 135 and that could be an easy fight to make if Loma has all the belts, Arum also talked about Loma going to 126 to fight Stevenson and that would be a win, win fight for Arum as he promotes both guys. Jumping to 147 doesn't seem to be in the cards as most of the guys are as large as Linares or Campbell but much more muscular, eventually he could have a Mikey Garcia situation where he is spotting too much size for his skills to overcome.

    After Loma wins the fourth belt at 135 lbs, I want him to fight and beat down Tank Davis.

    That boast did not turn out well for Bopkins. He lost to 3 whiteboys, with the last one Knocking him clean out of the ring and ended his career. I hope the same happens to this racist punk.

    Haha yes and a construction worker at that! No slight to Joe Smith Jr!

    I've been wondering who Lomachenko would fight next. Definitely want him to school the cocky 21yr old.

    12 years later and similar words... He indeed took a page from Hopkins here:rolleyes:, likely in more ways than one soon enough, I bet you more than a few black fighters feel this way.

    Hopkins will never live down that embarrassing whooping he took that ended in him falling out of the ring. He might forget about it though as though as boxing has definitely taken a toll on his brain.

    I remember watching it live on HBO. Bopkins was not knocked clean out of the ring, but his alien-looking headed collided with the floor. When he was able to get up, he claimed he was pushed out by Smith.LOL. What fitting end to this POS racist.

    Mayweather has the same mentality. No doubt Haney a flunkie and racist. Haney 's "white boy moment" should be 9 months away. I can not wait.
