What a waste of time if Lomachenko has to fight Crolla. I've seen some people say that WBA Super champions never have to face mandatories under WBA rules, so hopefully the WBA just makes a stupid regular title.

Yep, this is one case where I actually want them to make another garbage title. Loma clearly wipes this Crolla out, and it would be a waste of time for him to have to take the fight.

I hear Berchelt-Loma is what they are trying to make next. Don't know what weight, but that's the next fight for Loma that I want to see.

I agree, Loma vs. Berchelt is the fight to make in every way. It's easy to make promotionally given Zanfer's relationship with Top Rank and because of that it likely makes more financial sense than Crolla. Berchelt is also a worthy challenger and current highly rated champion, unlike Crolla. However, I wouldn't be surprised if it was Loma vs. Crolla given Hearn has a good relationship with the WBA. Ideally, we'd see Loma vs. Mikey, but that isn't going to happen and all things considered, Berchelt is not a bad substitute.

You think Berchelt could mimic a Salido-lite style and try to rough Loma up for a win?

Gold's picture

Maybe. I would still heavily favor Lomachenko, I think Berchelt is better than Salido in some ways and worse than Salido in other ways. Salido has a higher ring IQ, technical ability (especially inside boxing) and defense than Berchelt, but I don't think the Roman fight is in any way an accurate representation of Berchelt's best or how he'd fight versus Lomachenko. Berchelt has a better jab, better combination punching, and more size and power than Salido had. I scored Salido vs. Lomachenko to Salido and I don't think people should write it off entirely like I see a lot of people want to do. He wasn't as inexperienced as people want to make it seem, he had 397 amateur bouts and 6 WSB fights which are essentially pro fights. However, Lomachenko has pretty obviously improved since he fought Salido, and one of the things that lost him the fight was not throwing enough because he was afraid of gassing out. That simply hasn't been an issue since then. However, one reason Lomachenko's activity was lower versus Salido is that Salido went to the body consistently and successfully which certainly took some of Lomachenko's activity and movement away from him. Salido also had success pushing Lomachenko onto the ropes when he was able to get inside which is where he was able to do his best work. I don't really think Berchelt's defense will get him into trouble versus Lomachenko, it's not good but his offense is his defense and his chin is good. Despite Lomachenko fighting at Lightweight, I definitely think Berchelt is definitely bigger, and while Berchelt doesn't have massive one punch power he is a damaging accumulation puncher. If Berchelt can push Lomachenko back early, impose his size and work the body to slow Lomachenko down as Salido did, I think he has a chance to win. That's not a given though because Salido put himself in good positions because of his boxing ability and Berchelt may not be able to do that. I think overall Lomachenko has been matched up well stylistically throughout his career, and a good boxer-puncher with a size advantage and good boxing skills is a difficult stylistic matchup for him. However, it is definitely possible Lomachenko has evolved enough to neutralize a good traditional Mexican style fighter, but we don't really know that until we see it. What do you think?

I think offensively, Berchelt will be, if they fight, the best fighter that Loma has been in the ring against, at least in terms of power+punch activity. I wonder how he'd deal with Berchelt's length and pressuring style. I think Loma's footwork would really come into play, and the fight would be determined by how well Berchelt could cut off Loma as he pivots and land on him. If Loma can move effective and do his usual work, he wins, if Berchelt can neutralize Loma's movement, even in half, I think it could be a very interesting fight. I'm high on Berchelt though. I think he beats everyone at 130. Ito, Farmer, and Machado all get sparked by him IMO, and I think he could beat Davis, too.

Gold's picture

At times Berchelt has looked awkward because of poor footwork, so I agree that Lomachenko's footwork could be a big win factor for him. I think Berchelt will at least have some success though because like you said, he has good activity and power, he will find his mark at some point. For Davis vs. Berchelt I think it really depends on what version of Davis shows up. If Davis showed up at his best I think he could win, he is a great counterpuncher and if he lands his best shots he could have Berchelt in trouble. Berchelt would be a big step up in quality for Davis though. Farmer is easy for Berchelt and Davis, maybe Ito could beat him, but I still think there is more to know about Ito. I'll definitely be watching him on the end of the year Japanese card with Ken Shiro and Takuma Inoue.

I'd love to see that fight. I think with Berchelt's size it could easily be made at 135. Given by what Loma has said himself, I wouldn't expect to see any different. I could see Berchelt trying to go with the Salido style as you said, but I think Loma's inside game and dirtiness have grown quite a bit since the Salido fight. He was wrecking Linares on the inside late in that fight.

Gold's picture

While Lomachenko looked better on the inside versus Linares, Linares has never been a good inside fighter, he's had difficulty in the past when pressured by lesser fighters like Mitchell and Thompson.
