Booty fight. I like loma, but people can't call this a great win. Imagine Loma going up 2 weight classes to fight terence crawford, but 10 years older. People would be starting riots over how unfair it is to loma, yet it happens here and everyone is ok with it? Also, I watched the fight live and the commentators saying that lomachenko leaning on the back of the head and all that dirty shit made him a more complete fighter are marks. That ought to tell you the hype that this guy has to where the "professonals" are praising him for cheating. People said rigo was a real piece of work, and he was (Hitting Yotjan when they were touching gloves, Flores mischief, and his questionable inside work + holding) but I never saw it in this fight. All I saw was Loma leaning his full bodyweight on the back of gigos neck and rabbit punching (granted most of them didn't look intentional and rigo turns his head to the side exposing it, but by that same logic, it was ok for peter to mash the back of klitchkos head (wald vs peter 1), because klitchko was turned to the side). This was an awful fight.

I disagree. The weight, the age, they are the reasons why we are talking about GGG vs Canelo, Mikey Garcia, Terence Crawford, Spence, more than we are talking about Lomachenko win over Rigondeaux. How do you define great? Better than good? This win was that, a victory which is a real turning point in a fighter's career?, it would have been that, but as you said, and this is where most of us agree it wasn't that because of the weight and age.

Something we should give Lomachenko credit for is that he fought a guy who was unbeaten, a guy with a lot more reach, and not only did he beat him, it was a mismatch, I'm not saying it is the best win of his career, I'm not saying it will crack the top 3 in the long run, but he deserves credit and acknowledgement for that. For the record, I would say Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux, if they had met at 126, and they were the same age, would have been pretty much a 50/50 fight, I think Lomachenko would still have won.

This is professional boxing, it's still a fighting game at the end of the day, smart veterans are good at fighting dirty, but getting away with it, Miguel Cotto is an example.

The skill of Lomachenko was too much, he used his intelligence against him, he wouldn't take the bait, at any point, Rigondeaux, he never gave Lomachenko any easy openings, he certainly the reason why he didn't take a beating, but he never had an opportunity to let a flurry of shots go. That was actually Rigondeaux leaning his head over, waiting for the referee to call break, and using the intervals, trying to fight dirty, trying to take Lomachenko out of his element, but it didn't work.

I think it was a great performance from Lomachenko, and whatever you thought of it, you can't have been particularly unimpressed, because he showed no inabliltes, weaknesses, it is like the Martin vs Joshua situation, at the worst, nothing, not impressed, or unimpressed.
