View Full Version : Yaqui Lopez today

I think Yaqui would be a champion today. He was unfortunate to fight at a time when the 175 division was awfully strong, just look at all the guys he fought: Galindez, Spinks, Conteh, Saad...and only Spinks and Saad beat him convincingly. Conteh and Galindez fights were decided with a "coin toss". If he was boxing today, he'd surely be a strong contender to beat Dawson, Pascal and Johnson...and Cloud. He tkoed Mike Rossman after all. He also got robbed with incredibly wrong decision against Lonnie Bennett when Bennett headbutted him and the doctor stopped the fight, giving Bennett a tko win!

Lopez would probably do even better than he did in the 70's, which is pretty good.
