A masterclass TKO victory by Loma.
Loma seems to be back in the groove after shoulder surgery.
Loma makes it too easy to make predictions. That was a highlight performance.Although most won't admit it, boxers and entire boxing gyms around the country were watching this fight to learn from Loma. He and Canelo are the envy of the sport. Loma's hitting harder now with age too.
I know it was late and I had a few but I would have sworn I saw Fat Albert working the corner in the fight before Lomo's.
Gervonte Davis came from behind and Ko'd Barrios. A reigning 140 lbs champ. If Loma continues to form, they both could be on collision course. It would be a great fight at 140 lbs. Loma is actually taller than Davis.
Barrios seems to be viewed as a weak champion for Davis, a regular champ at that, and Tank was losing to him, the boxing media is trying to make a "4 kings" comparison, hearkening back to the original 4 kings, I think "4 divas" would be more apt, (though who is included in the "4 kings" is not consistent).
He picked Leo and Gamboa since they are names, but Gamboa is way past prime and Leo is much smaller, now he struggled with a little-known fighter who is neither smaller nor older.
It's worth noting that Loma Vs. Nakatani sold at ~2000 and Gervonta Vs. Barrios sold at ~16000 in the arenas.
The difference may be explained by venue but having such tiny venues for one of boxing's best fighters, is another thing.
Look out for Ilya Popov, 21 year old lightweight from Russia making his pro debut in a couple of weeks. He was an ELITE amateur as a youth and looking just as good as a senior, very fast, skilful and talented. Hope he gets fast tracked to school these overrated manufactured privileged lightweight hypejobs like Devin email champ Haney and Ryan Garcia.
A lot of black and brown fighters and prospects seem to be hypejobs, manufactured is the perfect word, not all of course, but a lot, our occasional Vietnamese spammers have made a visit.
No boxing or MMA events of note this weekend.
I saw a really good super middleweight boxer from England last night named Zac Parker. He is now 21-0 with 15 kos. He has good hand speed and enough power to make some noise in that division.
Joe Smith vs. Artur Beterbiev may happen on September 18.
This could be a very explosive fight. Can't wait to see it.
I hope it doesn't happen. I don't like when our guys fight each other. I'd rather see them beating up blacks and browns. In Beterbiev's case, I was hoping to see him against Canelo.
Totally get where you are coming from. However; I see this as a positive sign of the resurgence of The White Boxer.
Fury does not have "Covid-19" because the alleged pathogen does not exist, there is no test for something that does not exist, and there is no cure for something that does not exist.
Another crooked decision in Charlo vs Castano fight. I had Castano up by at least two rounds. A corrupt judge had Charlo up 117-110! Charlo hurt Castano twice, but Castano almost dropped Charlo in the 3rd but the ropes held him. The ref should have called that a knockdown. Great fight, but crooked paid off judges. The fight was called a draw. No way!
Protect the blackstars (and some brownstars) at all costs.
On the boxing sites, it's pretty much unanimous. Hyped Charlo was gifted a draw. This was close to the Canelo robbery of his 1st fight with GGG.
Disgusting robbery. Castano beat the **** out of him, clearly winning 8 or 9 rounds.
Charlo is just yet another protected, overrated, mediocre, great black hope.
Lithuanian boxer Eimantas Stanionis gets his next test against Luis Collazo this Saturday.
Dazn has a fight card today beginning at 2:00 et. Kid Galahad vs Jazz Dickens is the main event but has an interesting hw fight featuring Alen Babic vs Mark Bennett. Babic is highly talked about heavyweight.
Stanionis fight Vs. Collazo ends in headclash, they were both moving in and Collazo got dropped from the collision, Stanionis was beating him up and Collazo was going to retire so it may as well be a win.
No Gold for the US in boxing
Plenty of boxing cards this weekend. Showtime, ESPN, and Dazn having fights tonight. I think the best fight might be Franco vs Maloney on ESPN.
