Eh.

He landed bigger punches through 7.

But he never once put together back to back rounds where we thought he was beating ass.

I was very impressed by Lopez tonight. Loma was just as fun to watch for me. But he wasn’t as engaged imo.

Beats me, I have no idea.

I've probably watched his last 5 or 6 fights. He starts slow, feels a guy out, then goes off.

He has a very unique style with his movement, and he has a lot of flair and is a bit cocky.

Tonight, we saw none of that. Not sure why. When he started fighting, he dominated winning 4 of the last 5 rounds. No clue why he didn't do it earlier.


This. I’ve watched a few Loma fights and the first few rounds he’ll give then turn it up.

Ward had it even after 10. Andre Ward. Then a 119-109 for Lopez? C’mon.

I agree here to.

I think Loma clearly won 8 through 11, but it wasn't "beating his ass" type of winning rounds. It was just 4 solid rounds won.

Lopez's 12th was by far the most dominant round of the night.

8-11, he was still asleep in round 7. He didnt' start fighting until round 8.


You’re absolutely right.

I just rewatched round 7. He didn’t do shite.

I think I was just anxious to give him a round and make it a fight. Rd 7 was garbage.

Why would there ever be a clause now allowing a rematch?

A rematch clause is usually in place in case the champion loses. It guarantees that they receive an immediate chance to win their belt back if they lose.

Yea, I wanted to go back and rewatch that round as well, good stuff.

I kinda think almost every round had a somewhat clearcut winner, or at least as close to it as a boxing match usually has. Loma took 2 and 8 through 11. I don't really see much of an argument for Loma taking any other round than those.

A tale of two fights for Loma, who landed just 31 punches in the first 7 rounds. Lopez fought a disciplined fight, landing an avg. of 15/55 punches per rnd. Loma came on in rnds 8 thru 11, but Lopez closed the show by landing a fight high 50 punches, the most ever by a Loma foe.


Loma was smoked in the 12th

So it's not really a "no rematch" but really just more of the loser can't guarantee a rematch next fight?

That makes sense

No doubt. I picked that up and he probably didn’t even come close to showing it like he typically does. I feel like he miscalculated something with his strategy.

I’d guess he felt things out a little bit too long into the fight. Then when he realized he needed to go HAM Lopez was truly better than he figured.

I thought the fight was enjoyable.

Well he usually does it in like round 3 or 4 then is completely dominant the rest of the way, not waiting til round 8 but still getting rocked in round 12.

Correct. It's just weird in this situation bc they both have the same promoter (Bob Arum) and there was no rematch clause for the fight.

re: Lomachenko vs Lopez. Who do you pick?
I made a comment to my girlfriend after round 8 that he was shockingly not out of breath at the end of the round.

I don’t know his style(outside of you describing it to me). But I thought he was 1. Insanely fit. And 2. Not using it to his advantage.

re: Lomachenko vs Lopez. Who do you pick?
To add onto my last post, the announcers would have us believe Lopez has a devastating right but I never saw proof of it. Not even close.

I don’t really know about how long heavy favorites should slow play a fight but it surely looked like Lomachenko could have won if he came out using his superior ability early on. Like, in round 2 probably.

Yea, they were ridiculously over the top most of the night in favor of Lopez.

A "rematch clause" give the loser an automatic entitlement to a rematch. The absence of a rematch clause does not mean that the fighters can't agree to do it anyway.

There will be a rematch of this fight.
